Timbangan 2013: The Results from Pasig

On April 24, 2013, the Timbangan process done in the Ateneo Professional Schools in Makati was replicated in Barangay Maybunga, Pasig City. This second exercise in evaluating the 2013 senatorial candidates may have yielded a different ranking, but what remained the same was the marked change in voter preferences after the process of benchmarking. It is clear that using the scorecard compels voters to think beyond jingles and gimmicks and seriously consider qualifications and platforms.

Timbangan is about learning the process of evaluating candidates, not about endorsing particular candidates. Anyone can take the process and apply it to any set of candidates, whether national or local, for any position. In fact, we encourage people to do so. We are thrilled that a number of people have expressed interest in conducting similar activities in their respective schools/communities/barangays.
