ABS-CBN Teams up with University of the Philippines for Halalan 2013

ABS-CBN News and Current Affairs has partnered with the University of the Philippines system for the country's first and biggest fact-checking project that will verify candidates' claims on ABS-CBN's Halalan 2013 election forums and coverage, marking the first time a Philippine media organization will use the feature, which is standard in foreign news coverage and election debates.

Faculty and experts from UP will appear in fact-checking segments to air on ABS-CBN's TV and online platforms, a part of the collaboration between the network and the university to promote transparency and public participation among voters.

To formalize the partnership, ABS- CBN chairman and CEO Eugenio Lopez III, ABS-CBN president and COO Charo Santos-Concio, and ABS-CBN News and Current Affairs head Ging Reyes, signed a memorandum of agreement (MOA) with UP president Alfredo Pascual and UP vice president for Public Affairs, Prospero de Vera III last Dec. 5.

Pascual called the partnership a new milestone for UP as it is the first time that the university system has officially partnered with a media organization to provide the media component for the elections.

Santos-Concio said, "We believe UP's role in nurturing future leaders will be a boon to Halalan 2013's Tayo Na. With the UP system as our partner, ABS-CBN is ever confident and optimistic that the coming elections will again show our citizen journalists at their finest."

Aside from fact-checking, the MOA will also create projects related to ABS- CBN's election campaign Bayan Mo, iPatrol Mo: Tayo Na and voter informa- tion drives, including a microsite where overseas Filipino voters can get informa- tion on the 2013 elections.
