A senatorial candidate of Liberal Party (LP) on Monday said the 12-point lead of their presidential bet Senator Benigno Simeon Aquino III over closest rival Nacionalista Party (NP) standard bearer Sen Manuel Villar Jr. is no cause for celebration.

Surveys are only good on the day it was taken because its purpose is to guide the campaign strategists and not to predict the winner, said Muntinlupa Rep. Ruffy Biazon, ranked in polls as among the top 15 senatorial bets.

Only twelve Senate seats are up for grabs in May.

Bayan Muna, Gabriela top party-list poll

MANILA, Philippines – Twelve party-list groups have statistical chances of winning seats in the House of Representatives in the May 10 elections, with Bayan Muna leading the list of probable winners, according to the latest BusinessWorld-Social Weather Stations (SWS) Pre-Election Survey.

SWS said 12 party-list groups are guaranteed slots out of the 57 maximum seats that are reserved under the party-list system that mandates that groups which get two percent of votes cast for party-list groups would get a seat in the House.

The survey, conducted from April 16 to 19, showed Bayan Muna on top with 5.9 percent of the respondents’ votes, followed by Gabriela Women’s Party with 5.1 percent, Ako Bicol Party, 4.7 percent; Akbayan Citizens Action Party (Akbayan), 4.5 percent; Buhay Hayaan Yumabong (Buhay), 4.5 percent; and Alliance of National Urban Poor Organizations Assembly (ANUPA), 4 percent.
