TV5 Partners with Social Weather Stations

Tuesday, April 19, 2016

This elections has been ever so important as the Philippines gear towards ever spurring economic growth, an increasing GDP rate and a bright outlook in the next couple of years. We've never been so divided in opinions (as seen on social media) and people treat this one seriously as they've been fed up with the current people in the government, unemployment and poverty.

TV5 recently hosted quite a good Presidential debate and have continued to inform the general public about happenings in the elections through their "Bilang Pilipino" coverage. During the Presidential debate in Cebu's UP Campus, they also initiated a panel mobile survey designed by SWS. Two days before the much awaited event, they sampled 1,200 validated registered voters and distributed percentages of Manila, Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao. They held face to face then made it through mobile smartphones so they can get the views at the interviewee's convenience. 

TV5 President and CEO Emmanuel Lorenzana said "We at Bilang Pilipino and TV5 are committed to seeing more Filipinos being deeply involved in choosing our leaders in this coming May 2016 polls. The happiest network in the country is dedicating our efforts to also cater to the Millenials who are voting for the first time. This is our modest contribution to the Filipino electorate so they can make better decisions and analysis before the actual day of elections."

This partnership won't be also possible without their partners Starmobile (who provided handsets), Voyager Innovations (for the platform and Smart Communications for providing free and strong connection for this bit.
