MANILA, Philippines – Nearly nine in 10 Filipinos say they will vote according to their conscience and are unlikely to be swayed by endorsements or political machinery, a latest survey by the Social Weather Stations (SWS) showed.

The SWS Pre-Election Survey, conducted from April 16 to 19, found that 86 percent of registered voters will vote according to social interest rather than self-interest.

A majority or 86 percent chose to say that “I will vote for a candidate if most will benefit from him/her, even if I myself will not,” and only 14 percent chose to say that “I will vote for a candidate if I will benefit personally from him/her, even if most will not.”

The latest percentage of social-interest answers is higher compared to 79 percent in April 2007, the SWS said.
