Wow Pilipinas among the top party-list groups in midterm polls

WOW Pilipinas Partylist garners 4.5 percent votes from a mock poll with 8,000 respondents in the National Capital Region.

The non-commissioned survey was conducted by the RP-Mission and Development Foundation Inc (RPMDINC) from April 22 to 27, 2019.

The survey results show the high recall of WOW Pilipinas Party-list, despite being a newcomer, due to the endorsement by Senator Manny Pacquiao.

“It was able to translate its popularity into votes,” Dr. Paul Martinez of RPMDINC said on Tuesday, adding that the other partylists who made it to the Top 10, being incumbents, have a high recall because of a captured electorate.

A total of 60 party-list seats and 243 district seats are to be filled in the midterm polls on May 13. One seat is guaranteed to a group that earns 2 percent of the total number of voters.
