Isko Moreno party on Pulse Asia results: ‘It will be a 3-way race’
MANILA, Philippines—The May 2022 presidential race will be a three-way battle among Manila mayor Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso, former Senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr., and Vice President Leni Robredo, the mayor’s camp said on Wednesday.
Ernest Ramel, chairman of Aksyon Demokratiko, made the remark in a statement sent to INQUIRER.net following the latest Pulse Asia survey where Moreno, the party president, remains at third spot with 8 percent in terms of voter preference, behind Marcos at 56 percent, and Robredo at 24 percent.
“It’s actually an unfair characterization for some that it will be a 2-way fight. On the contrary, it will be a 3-way race as evidenced by Mayor Isko being consistently the top second choice,” Ramel said in a text message.
Ramel also stressed that Aksyon Demokratiko remains “unfazed” with the survey results.
“We also see other internal survey results from various sources showing way better numbers for Mayor Isko,” he pointed out.
Ramel said they will release a more recent survey where Moreno has better numbers by Friday.
“By Friday, we will discuss before the media a more recent survey done a few days ago that shows it will be a three-corner contest. With Mayor Isko having the best possibility to increase his numbers as the election draws near,” he said.
