Leni-Kiko tandem tops in Bicol University mock election

Equity of the Persecuted: Bicol University’s mock election shows “repressed” candidates shining

The Bicol Universitarian’s Mock Elections in Albay Province was officially released on Tuesday afternoon, February 1.

“Persecuted” national candidates had gotten the most number of votes over Duterte Administration -endorsed candidates.

The Leni-Kiko team got the sizeable number of votes.

Even left-wing Neri Colmenares, left of center Chel Diokno, right- wing Antonio Trillianes IV, and centrist Leila De Lila shared very high votes as compared to Duterte backed candidates.

Bicol University (BU) said “casting your vote is a celebration of freedom and democratic process.”

“The result of the mock elections sparingly mirrored our political stand as an academic community,” BU said.

“These leaders whom the BU community has chosen are the individuals they count their vote on and the future of our nation,” BU said, explaining the mock election.

Students’ political psyche may change in the coming months prior to the elections, but they have shared their tentative voting decisions for now, BUT explained.
