    It's correlated to QCs huge squatter population. Squatting has been tolerated in that city for the purpose of command votes during elections. Whoever gets them informal settlers at the polling booths will get the mayoralty. Hope Bistek will finally see the light and get these folk out of their misery and blight. Bigyan mo naman ng disenteng pabahay ang mga yan, Mayor!
