Mar Roxas places 2nd on PUP's mock election

Thursday, July 17, 2008 | posted in , , , , | 2 comments

It's OK! At least we can prove that we have a strong candidate here. Being second on the mock election doesn't necessarily mean that you will eventually lose in the general election. Instead, it would suggest that you are a strong contender for the post, it's just that there are still things needed to be done.

In The 7th Magnum Blog, I read about the Polytechnic University of the Philippines' mock election conducted by the PUP College of Economics, Finance and Politics from July 9-10, 2008. According to the blog post, Senate President Manny Villar had an edge of 226 votes against Senator Mar Roxas. Below is the breakdown of votes:
  • Senate President Manny Villar - 800 votes
  • Senator Mar Roxas - 534 votes
  • Vice President Noli de Castro - 330 votes
  • Eddie Gil - 65 votes
One year and a half to go and voters would be going to the polls to choose a new President. I hope mock elections like this would also be held on different colleges so that they would be able to gain the pulse of their students on who deserves to be the next President in 2010.

Same here! I was also wondering Planet Markus why Eddie Gil was in the list. In fairness to him, he has also the right to run for President as long as he qualifies the COMELEC guidelines. But as of now, I haven't heard of him or even his 2010 plans.
