MANILA , 25April2019 — A survey of Pulse Asia on preferred party-lists released Thursday revealed that Bayan Muna is the most preferred partylist among the various 134 partylist groups eyeing for seats in the House of Representatives this May 2019 elections.
Bayan Muna garnered 8.50% voter preference in the survey conducted from March 23 to 27 among 1,800 adult respondents.
Also, Gabriela and Anakpawis got favorable preference. The high-voter preference for Bayan Muna, Gabriela, and AnakPawis came amid red-tagging by the military for their critical stand on policies of the Duterte administration.
A total of 134 party-list groups are eyeing a Congress seat in the May 2019 midterm elections.
Pulse Asia said about three-quarters or 74% of voters “have heard, read, or watched something about the party-list system.”
The polling firm said this is “much higher” than the 61-percent party-list awareness level in February 2019. [BicolToday.com]
