Drilon: Team PNoy candidates overwhelmingly preferred to UNA

The latest survey showing the Filipinos' high preference for Team PNoy senatorial candidates is an indication of their confidence in the President and his team, said Team PNoy campaign manager, Senator Franklin M. Drilon.

"We welcome the Pulse Asia's survey in which seven of the top 12 spots were dominated by the Team PNoy, with the top three places also dominated by Team PNoy candidates," he said.

In the Pulse Asia's January 2013 survey, incumbent Senators Loren Legarda, Francis Escudero and Alan Peter Cayetano, all administration senatorial candidates, dominated the top three slots, noted Drilon.

"It is beyond doubt that President Aquino's endorsement of his senatorial team is very effective and has been taken positively by the people who clearly manifest support for the team the President has chosen to help him carry out his reforms in the next three years," stressed Drilon.

"The survey is a manifestation that majority of the people trust the candidates the President has chosen to be part of his reform team in the Senate," he said. "Naiintindihan na ng taumbayan ang mensahe ng ating Pangulo: ito ang kasama ko sa tuwid na daan."

Drilon also said the survey signifies confidence in the five other candidates of Team PNoy who are within striking distance. "The campaign has not even started yet. I am confident that when they get the needed exposure, they will catch up," he said.
