UP sa Halalan 2019: Giving context to the elections

An initiative which traces its roots to the UP sa Halalan project by the university’s Office of the Vice President for Public Affairs in the 2013 and 2016 elections, the project aims to provide the public with viewpoints from experts in political science, governance, the electoral process and other issues confronting the electorate.

Department chair and project head Prof. Maria Ela Atienza said the project aims to continue “the kind of work particularly during elections, where we present analysis, evidence-based data, that hopefully can inform different sectors about what is at stake during elections.”
