It's still anybody's guess on May 10 winner - Palace

Manila (5 May) -- With only a week before the elections, Malacanang recently said it is still anybody's guess as to who will win in the country's first automated national elections, especially the presidential race.

Press Undersecretary Rogelio Peyuan said during a Malacanang media briefing that the next president may not necessarily come from the frontrunners in surveys, which he said are limited in scope and "not reflective of the people's will."

"Elections give us a lot of surprises," Peyuan said as he cited the case of administration candidate Gilberto "Gibo" Teodoro Jr., who has not fared well in the surveys, but who won in a surprising twist of events the other day, the endorsement of the religious group Kingdom of Christ founded by Pastor Apollo Quiboloy. The group is said to have five to six million followers nationwide.

Also not to be ignored, Peyuan said, are the heavy turnouts of supporters during the campaign sorties of the other presidential candidates.

Peyuan said he expects other influential groups with substantial following may likely announce their own endorsements of preferred candidates before May 10.

Peyuan said figures from the Commission on Elections showed there are some 50 million registered voters all over the country, out of a population of about 92 to 94 million.

Citing elections trends, Peyuan said he expects a mortality rate of about 11 percent to 12 percent, meaning that those covered in the ratio forecast will not exercise their right of suffrage come May 10. (PIA-MMIO) [top]
