Mar loses in poll of INC-owned TV network

MANILA, Philippines — Viewers of a television station owned by members of the Iglesia ni Cristo suggest that Interior and Local Government Secretary Manuel "Mar" Roxas II does not have a chance of winning the presidency in the 2016 national election.

A survey conducted on Wednesday by Eagle Broadcasting Corp.'s Net 25 showed that 93.3 percent of the respondents said Roxas will not become the next president. Only 6.9 percent of the respondents said that the Liberal Party presumptive presidential candidate has a chance of winning, according to a Pilipino Star Ngayon report.

The poll, however, did not disclose the number of respondents involved.

Candidates of any national position usually seek the support of the indigenous religious organization during the election season, believing that the church's block vote would help them win. INC has around two million members.

Sen. Grace Poe and Vice President Jejomar Binay dominate the latest Pulse Asia and Social Weather Stations presidential preference polls while Roxas ranks either third or fourth.

The INC television network has not yet conducted surveys on other possible presidential bets. — Patricia Lourdes Viray
