A lawmaker has pooh-poohed the latest Pulse Asia Survey of presidential and vice presidential bets.
“The so-called latest Pulse Asia survey of people’s preferences was very obviously done carelessly and haphazardly. How is it that in the survey of vice presidential bets, Sen. [Gregorio] Honasan was not even mentioned at all? If they had done their homework, then very clearly, [the senator]would have gotten a lot of people’s approval, especially on the issue of peace and order problems affecting our country,” Rep. Lito Atienza of Buhay party-list said in a statement on Friday.
Atienza pointed out that among all the vice presidential candidates, Honasan would be in the best position to address the serious problems besetting the country now — the continued proliferation of drugs and the rise in drug-related crimes, the breakdown of law and order and the threat of international and local terrorism.
