ROXAS CITY—A recent survey of the Global Zenith Research and Consulting, Inc. reported that Capiz Vice-Gov. Esteban Evan Contreras is preferred by more than half of the respondents.

Earlier Contreras had signified his intent to run for governor.

In the survey that asked respondents their choice for Capiz governor, Contreras ranked first, garnering 53.95%, followed by his father, Esteban Contreras with 14.63%.


Businessman Joel Longares ranked third with 10.97%; followed by 1st District Rep. Antonio del Rosario, 8.81%; Roxas City Mayor Angel Alan Celino, 5.32%; and Pilar Mayor Gideon Patricio, 2.49%.

Some 3.82% of respondents did not choose any of the political personalities who are either linked as potential gubernatorial candidates or have expressed interest in running.

Conducted from July 19 to 20 this year, the survey had a total of 1,203 respondents in the two congressional districts of Capiz.

The same survey also asked the respondents on the political personalities they are aware of; those they are satisfied with; and those whom they trust.

Contreras said that the survey result could be a basis for his possible bid for governor.

“Lain gid nga mabatyagan mo nga gusto ka sang tawo (It’s really something when you get to know that you are preferred by your constituents),” Contreras said.

“Indi ko man pagidutdut akon kaugalingon kun nabatyagan ko nga indi ako gusto sang tawo (I would not insist if the people don’t find me worthy),” he added.

In said survey, the older Contreras beat his son in four towns, namely: Cuartero, Dao, Panitan, and President Roxas.

The former Capiz governor got 65.2% in Panitan while his son only got 8.7%.

Longares, meanwhile, garnered 33.3% of the respondents in Dumarao as compared to the younger Contreras who had 26.7%.

Further, incumbent Gov. Victor Tanco, Sr. garnered “very high” awareness ratings, and “high” satisfaction and trust ratings in the survey.

The two Contrerases, Celino, Del Rosario, and former governor Vic Bermejo also garnered “high” ratings in awareness and satisfaction;

All names except Celino posted “high” ratings in trust. The Roxas city mayor posted a moderate rating. Capiz 2nd District Rep. Fredenil Castro also posted “high” satisfaction ratings.
