The University of the Philippines, in partnership with ABS-CBN Corporation, GMA Network, and CNN Philippines, has launched the UP sa Halalan 2016 project to promote clean, honest and empowering elections in the Philippines in May 2016.
Pursuant to these agreements, a website (http://halalan.up.edu.ph) was developed to serve as a platform for UP to:
- Facilitate voter education by making election-related data accessible to the faculty, staff, students, alumni and the general public;
- Disseminate relevant information about the candidates, plus election-related research findings and analyses by UP-based experts in a manner that is meaningful and comprehensible to various audiences; and
- Ensure that election-related initiatives, such as the fact check project, reach the widest audience possible through the use of both traditional and new media.
