I'm sorry if I'm late for the debates recently, but now, I'm dropping out from the Senate by-election race because of that.
Debates aren't a big deal, irl stuff should always come first. And if everyone who missed a debate stepped down from government a lot of people would not have positions. So bottom-line, don't drop out just for missing a debate. And what Hulldom said, the debate was cancelled.
