SWS disowns Cabuyao, Laguna survey


MANILA – Social Weather Stations on Monday disowned photos circulating on social media showing results of a survey supposedly conducted in Cabuyao, Laguna.

''Social Weather Stations hereby informs the public that it has not conducted any survey on voter preferences in the City of Cabuyao, as shown in the document being distributed in the area and passed around in social media,'' SWS said in a statement.

The photos show survey results on voter preferences for president, vice-president, governor, vice-governor and mayor. It also cited the April 13 and 14 Bilang Pilipino Panel Mobile Surveys on voter commitment, which were first reported in Bilang Pilipino (www.bilangpilipino.com) on April 16, 2016.

''This is another example of the dubious practices during election season to misinform the public,'' SWS said.

''With less than two weeks left before the elections, we remind the public to be vigilant of false SWS survey reports. Everyone is urged to rely only on the SWS website at www.sws.org.ph for its official media releases and public reports."
