The May 2022 Election is fast approaching and the candidates are currently busy campaigning in the different cities and provinces across the nation. They are meeting with their supporters and doing caravans to gain more votes in the upcoming poll.

The supporters of the candidates have also conducted their own ways of campaigning for their bets. They joined the motorcades and caravans, printed posters and streamers expressing their support, and a lot more.

Aside from the campaign activities, another thing that many people await is the debate. There are usually presidential and vice-presidential debates held prior to the poll.
