MANILA, Philippines—Of the 187 organizations that participated in the party-list election, 44 groups are likely to get seats in the House of Representatives, the results of an ABS-CBN/Pulse Asia exit poll showed on Wednesday.

Applying the seat allocation formula set by the Supreme Court in its April 2009 decision, these groups will be able to send 57 nominees to the 15th Congress.

The exit poll, conducted by Pulse Asia for ABS-CBN, interviewed 7,296 voters and has an error of margin of +/-1.8.

Religious blocs fail to deliver

MANILA , Philippines —The results of the 2010 presidential and vice presidential elections have demystified the supposed political clout of various religious leaders who have held candidates hostage in past elections.

The biggest flops were Pastor Apollo Quiboloy of the Kingdom of Jesus Christ in Davao City , and Brother Mariano “Mike” Velarde of the El Shaddai Movement.

The Iglesia ni Cristo (INC), under the fresh leadership of the late Eraño Manalo’s son, more particularly lived up to its perceived influence in the vice presidential race.
