MANILA, Philippines — Broadcaster Raffy Tulfo remained the most preferred candidate for senator in the latest survey conducted by OCTA Research Group.

Tied for the last two spots with 31 percent were former senator JV Ejercito, reelectionist Sen. Risa Hontiveros and former vice president Jejomar Binay.

In 14th but within statistical margin of winning a Senate seat was former Quezon City mayor and actor Herbert Bautista with 27 percent.

Trailing them were former presidential spokesperson Harry Roque (24 percent), former Philippine National Police chief Guillermo Eleazar (22 percent), former senator Gregorio Honasan (22 percent), former defense secretary Gilbert Teodoro (20 percent) and reelectionist Sen.

They were followed by former senator Antonio Trillanes IV (18 percent), suspended lawyer Larry Gadon (17 percent), human rights lawyer Chel Diokno (13 percent), SAGIP Party-list Rep. Rodante Marcoleta (11 percent, but since dropped out), reelectionist Sen. Leila de Lima (10 percent) and former Bayan Muna representative Neri Colmenares (10 percent).
