Why did Comelec junk two poll safeguards?

With Due Respect
By Artemio V. Panganiban

MANILA, Philippines—All this time, I have written mostly about unnerving delays in the Comelec timetable and the absolute need for accuracy in the printing and delivery of the automated ballots and in the calibration and delivery of the PCOS machines. So readers asked why I have not taken up possible computer glitches like source code review, transmission failures and hacking of the system.

Overlooked safeguards. I have left these hi-tech issues to others who are more technically qualified than I am (like the Center for People Empowerment in Governance or CenPEG). If it is right in its assessments, then the automation problems are even more disastrous and could cause a nationwide failure of election, not just in some localities as I have feared.
