Posted by akosistella on March 16, 2010

MANILA, Philippines – The Liberal Party (LP) is confident that a “protest vote” would elect candidates who are the anti-thesis of the administration on May 10.

The LP said a survey commissioned by the Manila Broadcasting Co. and its flagship station dzRH showed LP presidential candidate Sen. Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III remained the top choice among voters with 37.1 percent, followed by Nacionalista Party standard-bearer Manuel Villar Jr. with 29.8 percent.

Former President Joseph Estrada of the Pwersa ng Masang Pilipino was third with 13.9 percent, Lakas-Kampi-CMD bet Gilberto Teodoro Jr. ranked fourth with 6.9 percent, and Sen. Richard Gordon of Bagumbayan was fifth overall at 3.1 percent, tailed closely by Bro. Eddie Villanueva in sixth place with 2.6 percent.

(SMC), the Philippines’ largest food and beverage giant.
