Diliman, Quezon City March 1, 2013 – the BBB Team invites high school and college students, members of student councils, university political parties, SK officers, and other interested parties to the research presentation of Boka, Bukó, Boto: Exploring Perceptions on Philippine Elections on March 16, Saturday, at the Media Center TV Studio, College of Mass Communication, UP Diliman.
Since its establishment in 1975, the Department of Communication Research of the College of Mass Communication, University of the Philippines Diliman has offered courses that aim to develop scholarship, skills-proficiency, and professionalism. Under the supervision of Dr. Jose Lacson, the Communication Research 165 (HWX) class, composed of 17 third year Communication Research students (BBB Team), has conducted a research on the different perceptions of Philippine elections. The study focused on the Philippine elections, as perceived by the three main players of this social phenomenon: the politicians, the media practitioners, and the voters. This research incorporated elements such as culture, historical background and societal issues in the analysis of texts to create a multi-perspective vision of today’s Philippine elections.
As part of the Youth Electorate, the BBB Team believes in the importance of a holistic, timely, and relevant research that would be beneficial to every sector of the society. The team believes that voters’ education must be reinforced to ensure a fair and honest democratic process, and to remind every Filipino of his right and duty to vote wisely.
