ONLY RECTO FROM TEAM UNITY WILL WIN IN THE SENATORIAL RACE.
Based on a mock election conducted by Migrante International, a migrant workers' advocacy. GO bets swamped TU, 9-1, while the remaining slots in the top 12 was filled by two independent candidates.
The mock polls were conducted by the group in eight countries from April 8-15. From highest to lowest votes, the winners are:
1. Loren Legarda
2. Manuel Villar
3. Alan Peter Cayetano
4. Francis Escudero
5. Panfilo Lacson
6. Francis Pangilinan
7. Aquilino Pimentel III
8. Benigno Aquino III
9. Ralph Recto
10. Sonia Roco
11. Gregorio Honasan
12. John Osmeņa
Although Antonio Trillanes did not make it to the magic 12, I think he is a much better choice than Sonia Roco who, like Cory Aquino is another housewife of a departed politician.
It's time Filipinos improved their voting habits, sympathy votes do not help the country because what we need are leaders who can do the job.
