AkoBicol tops SWS party list survey

MANILA, PHILIPPINES—New regional party list group AkoBicol Political Party (AKB) topped the Social Weather Stations (SWS) party list survey released Friday. The survey, which was conducted from May 3 to 4, 2010, showed that 5.64% of voters preferred the group over 186 rivals.

With one statistical point equivalent to about 500,000, AKB’s ratings translates to some 2.8 million votes. This will entitle the group to at least 2 seats in the next Congress.

AKB edged out seasoned party list groups, which have already served in Congress.
