Metro Manila (CNN Philippines) — This coming national elections, we have five tandems, plus a vice presidential candidate without a running mate.

But are Filipinos inclined to vote for tandems?

Watch: Why the vice presidential race matters

In 1986, the Corazon "Cory" Aquino-Doy Laurel tandem assumed the presidential and vice presidential seats. In 1992, Fidel V. Ramos nabbed the presidency, while his running mate Lito Osmeña lost to Joseph "Erap" Estrada.

In 1998, Estrada assumed the presidential seat, but his running mate Edgardo Angara lost to Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo.

In 2004, the Arroyo-Noli de Castro tandem won.

In 2010, Benigno "Noynoy" Aquino III won the presidential post, but running mate Manuel "Mar" Roxas II lost to Jejomar Binay.

As the country's sole vice presidential debate for the 2016 elections happens on Sunday (April 10), let us take a look at how the stand of vice presidential candidates jive with their running mates in terms of national issues.
