8:08 am
in these elections? well, marcus has been able to take advantage of the fact that around half of the registered voters in the philippines are too young to have lived through his father's administration or even remember what that time was like. so it has been relatively easy for his campaign and his supporters to kind of re cast that dark period in philippines. history on when there were correct when that was corruption and human rights abuses as a golden age for the philippines. and has been able to avoid tough questions simply by avoiding the media. it's been quite difficult getting media access to the presidential candidate. he pre select journalists who can attend his press conferences. he's avoided debates and just as an anecdotal story, we weren't able to get accreditation to cover his campaigns. and we weren't even able to get close enough to set up a, a camera position for more than 5 minutes. and that's why we're coming to now about

2 kilometres from his last, from the last day of his campaign rally on saturday. now a fact tracking group has also said that mark was junior, has benefited the most from her misinformation or disinformation campaign, even whereas in contrast, his closest rival, lenny robledo, has been the biggest victim of a disinformation campaign. now the other reason why he's been able to go streak ahead in opinion polls is because he's pad up with sarah, detect a, the daughter of the incumbent, preston who is himself a very popular and they both have different strongholds in different areas. marco's junior is popular in the north, and the detective family is popular in the south now, but if you speak to marco supporters, they'll say that his message of unity resonates with them. and florence explain, described as the most important election for the philippines wise that
8:10 am
well, in the last 6 years, the philippines has been ruled by incumbent rodrigo detect day. and during that time, people say that the analysts say that there has been a disregard for the rule of law. he kept his sanctions or even author sanctions, extra judicial killings in his war on drugs. he undermines the rule of law and his even been accused of targeting his critics and political opponents using trumped up charges, using a combination of threats and intimidation. so there's a concern that a mock horse presidency could mean very much of the same thing. a glorification of authoritarian or strong men leadership. now, some of the analysts have also note at some risk consultants, i've also noted that a marco's presidency could mean greater risk of corruption for the philippines and then basil. so the way this campaign, this presidential campaign has been run, if marco's does win, than it would have been on a social media campaign of misinformation,
