At least two senatorial candidates will push to abolish the pork barrel system, if elected.

On ANC's “Harapan 2013”, Risa Hontiveros of Team PNoy said Congress would be better off without pork barrel while independent candidate Ricardo Penson prefers putting in place a shared legislative research fund.

But independent candidate Puerto Princesa Mayor Edward Hagedorn maintains that lawmakers should just use pork barrel funds wisely.

The three candidates were also asked about what they will do in their campaigns to boost their poor standing in the surveys.

Recent senatorial surveys have ranked Hontiveros, Hagedorn and Penson at the bottom half of the 33 candidates listed. The World Tonight, ANC, February 12, 2013
