MANILA Mayor Isko Moreno emerged as the top choice for president and again for vice president in a survey conducted in view of the upcoming elections in 2022.
The said survey, which has Top Choice and Top of Mind categories and covering the period of December 6 to 14, was conducted by iOptions Ventures Corp.
With over 250 local and nationwide surveys since 2004, iOptions provides key insights and strategies on the local and national landscape and conducts survey research relevant to the daily lives of Filipinos.
Moreno is the top choice (Top of Mind) for President in 2022 and according to the survey company, even if the greatest number of respondents actually chose President Rodrigo Duterte as their top of mind choice, he has not been considered as the top of mind choice since he can no longer run for reelection as stated in the 1987 Constitution.
He was also the number one choice for President (With Choice.)
For Vice President in 2022 (With Choice), Moreno is also the top pick. In the top of mind category, he was second.
The company website said that “in view of the upcoming presidential election in less than two years’ time, respondents were asked about their preferences for President and Vice President of Philippines for 2022.”
Moreno said that while he is flattered by the people’s trust and confidence in him, his focus remains in Manila and how to get everything back to normal once the COVID-19 vaccines arrive.
Time and again, Moreno reiterated that he has no interest in running for any national position. In 2022, he would have finished his first term as mayor and has two terms left.
