Abstract

This paper attempts to trace the electoral behaviour of Baguio City voters during two years, beginning with the 1986 Presidential election contest between Ferdinand Marcos and Corazon Aquino. A major theme of the analysis is the importance of specifically political variables, as opposed to socio-economic ones, in understanding the electorate. The discussion concludes that the Filipino voter is capable of responding to policy issues. The electorate seems ready for a transition to new forms of politics. However, this will be impossible until a new kind of political leadership is willing to exploit this readiness.
