know your candidate wikipilipinas
The electorate is evolving. Gone were the days that the voters are just waiting for political advertisements to come up on their televisions. Today, as empowered by the tools of mass media, voters now are not just after name recall and popularity; they dig deep on the candidates backgrounds and platforms.

WikiPilipinas, the Hip n’ Free Philippine Encyclopedia, launched the #KnowYourCandidate campaign. Relevant information about the senatorial aspirants are compiled in comprehensive and objective profiles where voters can analyze the candidates’ stance, platforms and ideologies. Blog Watch is also helping WikiPilipinas gather the platforms because we plan to create a matrix of relevant issues that the electorate is looking for.

More importantly, netizens also want to know the candidates’ legislative agenda for Information and Communications Technology (ICT).

Readers can be involved in the campaign through WikiPilipinas’ official twitter (@wkipilipinas) and Facebook (facebook.com/wikipinasorg) accounts.

You can view the profiles and platforms at #knowyourcandidate wiki page.

As of this posting, here are the candidates who have submitted their platforms. Those highlighted in red have still to submit their platforms. (Please send them to contact at blogwatch dot tv)
