This is due to their teaching that unity is more important over politics.
This large group is said to have endorsed 7 Team PNoy candidates and 5 Team UNA bets for the upcoming senatorial elections this May 2013. The Iglesia ni Cristo candidates for senators on May 13 elections are the following:
From Team PNoy: Sonny Angara, Bam Aquino, Alan Peter Cayetano, Grace Poe, Loren Legarda, Antonio Trillanes, Cynthia Villar
From UNA: JV Ejercito, Richard Gordon, Nancy Binay, Gringo Honasan, Jack Enrile
The INC church has been known to deliver bloc votes in every election in the past, thus the announcement is expected to affect the outcome of the surveys and the election itself, as Senator Miriam Defensor-Santiago also pointed out in her past interviews.
According to sources, INC has around 4 millions followers who are registered voters.
