12 April 2016

As far as airport officials and employees are considered, there is no contest in the vice presidential race.

This after vice presidential candidate Senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” R. Marcos Jr. flew above and beyond his rivals in the vice presidential derby in a mock poll conducted by the Samahang Manggagawa sa Paliparan ng Pilipinas (SMPP) and the Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA).

Marcos blew away the competition with 425 votes out of the 611 votes cast with 82 votes coming from Terminal One, 28 from Terminal Two, 180 from Terminal Three, 50 from Terminal Four, and 85 among the corporate workers.

It was not even a close contest as erstwhile rival Senator Francis “Chiz” Escudero trailed at second place, registering 50 votes.

Camarines Congresswoman Leni Robredo came in a close third to Escudero with 49 votes, followed by Senator Alan Peter Cayetano with 46 votes, while Senators Gregorio “Gringo” Honasan and Antonio “Sonny” Trillanes came in last with 10 and 7 votes, respectively.

Meanwhile, in the presidential race, Davao City Mayor Rodrigo “Rody” Duterte came in first place with 306 votes. Vice President Jejomar “Jojo” Binay came in second with 181 votes, followed by Senator Grace Poe with 52 votes. Senator Miriam Defensor Santiago was at fourth place with 32 votes. Former DILG Secretary Manuel “Mar” Roxas II came in last with 23 votes.
