Although the presidential election is still a few months away in 2016, we have set up an online poll to get to know what candidate Filipinos are likely to vote for. The candidates listed include those who already filed their certificates of candidacy.

In this way, we will have an idea as to who is likely to replace outgoing President Benigno Aquino III and what to expect in the next six-year administration starting in 2016. We may change our choice by the time of the actual election and we hope that this mock election will help us decide once and for all.

The Presidential Candidates
Just like the previous presidential election, it is expected to see a lot of candidates running for the top post. There were prominent personalities and virtual unknowns. And beyond every one's expectations, there was one notable back out from Davao City mayor Rodrigo Duterte. Here are the official candidates that have already filed their certificate of candidacy: Jejomar Binay (incumbent Vice President of the Philippines), Rizalito David (Sociopolitical Analyst), Miriam Defensor-Santiago (veteran Senator), Grace Poe-Llamanzares (rookie Senator), Manuel Roxas III (former Senator and incumbent Interior Secretary), Roy SeƱeres (OFW partylist representative), 
Apolonia Comia Soguilon (Lawyer), and Augusto Syjuco Jr. (former Iloilo Congressman and current TESDA director-general).

The Vice Presidential Candidates
Interestingly, there are more candidates running for vice president in this coming election. Most of the candidates are incumbent Senators. Is it because, the chances of winning the race is much more difficult? Here are the prospective candidates running for the second-highest political position in the country: Alberto Alba (Ang Kapatiran Partylist representative), Alan Peter Cayetano (incumbent Senator), Francis Escudero (incumbent Senator), Gregorio Honasan (incumbent Senator), Ferdinand Marcos Jr. (incumbent Senator), Diego Palomares Jr. (retired Judge), Leni Robredo (Camarines Sur 3rd District Congresswoman), and Antonio Trillanes IV (incumbent Senator).



Our country's future is in the vote we cast and the candidate that will win the election. Let us vote wisely!
