MANILA, April 23 — Inspired by its continued dominance over the opposition in all pre-election surveys, the administration coalition Team PNoy hopes to put more of its senatorial candidates in the Magic 12 with barely three weeks left in the campaign for the midterm polls.

“We are happy that Team PNoy is still leading in the results of the survey,” remarked Liberal Party spokesman Erin Tanada on the latest Social Weather Stations-BusinessWorld survey showing nine Team PNoy candidates in the winners’ circle against only three for the opposition United Nationalist Alliance.

”But we are not settling to 9-3. We will try to improve our lead through hard work in the campaign in the different provinces,” Tanada said.

The Quezon representative said the LP machinery will do its best to help three of its candidates still out of the Magic 12.

In the latest SWS-BW senatorial preference survey, reelectionist Sen. Loren Legarda maintained her hold on the top spot, followed by Sen. Alan Peter Cayetano, who vaulted into second position for the second time since the campaign started.

UNA’s Nancy Binay and former Rep. Cynthia Villar shared the third and fourth spots followed by reelectionist Sen. Chiz Escudero, Benigno ‘Bam’ Aquino, reelectionist Sen. Aquilino ‘Koko’ Pimentel, San Juan Rep. JV Ejercito Estrada of UNA, Aurora Rep. Edgardo ‘Sonny’ Angara, former Movie Review Board chair Grace Poe, and reelectionist Sen. Antonio Trillanes IV.

Cagayan Rep. Jack Enrile and reelectionist Sen. Gregorio Honasan, both of UNA shared 12th and 13th places.

Only former Sen. Ramon Magsaysay Jr., former Sen. Jamby Madrigal and former party-list Rep. Risa Hontiveros are still out of the winners’ circle among the Team PNoy candidates.

Magsaysay Jr. is locked in a tie for 14th to 15th place with former Sen. Juan Miguel Zubiri, Madrigal is in 16th place while Hontiveros is at 17th.

“This three remaining three weeks, the machineries of Team PNoy will work together to help our three remaining candidates,” Tanada said. (PNA)
