Amid low survey numbers, Lacson calls on ‘active, silent’ supporters to vote on May 9
MANILA, Philippines — Amid his “constant” two-percent voter preference in Pulse Asia pre-election polls, presidential candidate Senator Panfilo Lacson called on his “active and silent” supporters, as well as those who believe in “good and honest governance,” to vote on May 9.
“Aside from the constant 2% survey results that they’ve been giving me for the past few months, now it is zero scores in both Visayas and Mindanao. Instead of speculating, it is best for me to just wait for the May 9 election results which is not too long a wait after all,” Lacson said in a statement on Tuesday.
“That being said, I call on all my active and silent supporters and those who truly believe in good, honest governance to go out on May 9 and cast their votes as it is the ultimate show of support that matters to Filipinos of the present and future generations,” he added.
In the latest Pulse Asia survey released on Monday, Lacson continues to lag behind four other presidential contenders.
The survey, conducted on April 16 to 21, showed Lacson with a two percent voter preference.
Lacson has repeatedly brushed off the results of pre-election surveys, citing the support he feels on the ground as he embarks on his campaign.
