To prepare for the upcoming Philippine Elections 07, sophomore Journalism students from the College of Mass Communication, University of the Philippines have written profiles of individual senatorial candidates.

Profiles were based on interviews, congressional records, and published articles/podcasts on the senatorial candidate. The students were specifically assigned to include their background and their stand on specific issues such as the VFA, the extra-judicial killings, family planning, divorce, and education. However, because of the limited number of students in this project, not all the senators have been covered. Only those with links ahve write-ups. In any case, we hope this class project will help the reader make an informed choice in the upcoming Elections.
