DAVAO CITY – Administration senatorial bet Francis Tolentino has placed 10th in the final pre-election survey before the upcoming May 13 polls on Monday.
Latest figures from Pulse Asia showed that Tolentino is now ranked between 10th to 15th place based on the data gathered from May 3 to 6.
The former chairman of the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) has enjoyed a 6.1 percent increased in voter’s preference, wherein 29 percent of the respondents are now saying that they will support Tolentino on the Election Day.
Reelectionist administration candidate Sen. Cynthia Villar has now overtaken independent reelectionist Sen. Grace Poe in the top spot placing first and second respectively.
Last week, Tolentino has secured the much needed endorsements from influential religious groups El Shaddai and Iglesia ni Cristo (INC).
The former Presidential Political Adviser of President Rodrigo Duterte was also able to secure the support of Senate President Vicente “Tito” Sotto III and his political entity, the National People’s Coalition (NPC).
