Facebook has been flooding with memes showing how an inexperienced Nancy Binay beat former Akbayan representative Risa Hontiveros in the latest Pulse Asia Survey. According to the latest survey, Team PNoy candidates lead the Pulse Asia Survey with 9 of its 12 candidates having a statistical chances of winning the upcoming elections.
I am urging the voting people to learn about the candidates and dig their past. The voting system in the Philippines shouldn't be based on name recall, if the candidate has this famous political surname or has a spouse or a celebrity girlfriend. Candidates should win based on background, track record and by their platform and causes.
Please stay away from traditional politicians and candidates connected to political dynasties. Let us give chance to others who are deserving to be elected especially the marginalized. And lastly, we shouldn't be persuaded to vote based on surveys. Stick to the candidates that will make a better Philippines!
