Survey shows close fight in Malabon mayoralty, vice mayoralty race
The two contenders for Malabon mayor have both claimed the lead in the race by touting the results of different surveys.
Another survey by Public Asia showed that Jeannie Sandoval and Enzo Oreta are in a tight race for number 1.
The Publicus survey conducted between April 8 to 13 gave Sandoval, the city’s former vice mayor, 41 percent.
Enzo Oreta, brother of incumbent Mayor Len-Len Oreta, had 37 percent.
Another 19 percent are undecided.
Publicus said the margin of error for most of the cities is +/- 10 percent.
This means Sandoval and Oreta are considered statistically tied.
The same is true for vice mayoralty candidates Jayjay Yambao and Ninong Dela Cruz.
Yambao, Sandoval’s running mate, got 39 percent while Dela Cruz got 34 percent.
