Posted by akosistella on March 27, 2010
MANILA, Philippines – Nearly half of Filipino adults believe that a failure of the country’s first nationwide automated elections on May 10 will trigger a people power revolution, a latest survey by the Social Weather Stations (SWS) showed.
The special SWS Pre-Election Survey, conducted from Feb. 24 to 28, found that 48 percent of voters sense people power will happen if the 2010 elections fail, similar to 49 percent in the SWS October 2009 survey.
To the statement, “If the 2010 elections fail for any reason, e.g., malfunctioning of counting machines, then people power will probably happen already,” the SWS found that 48 percent agree and 21 percent disagree, for a net agreement score of +28.
