Nograles to Supreme Court: Compel Comelec to cleanse Davao voters’ list

Posted by akosistella on March 12, 2010

MANILA, Philippines – Speaker Prospero Nograles yesterday asked the Supreme Court (SC) to compel the Commission on Elections (Comelec) to cleanse the Davao City voters’ list of double registrants and even registered voters that are already dead.

Nograles’ lawyer Danilo Basa filed a 10-page petition urging the SC to prepare a new list of voters in the three districts of Davao City.

Nograles, who is running for Davao City mayor against incumbent Mayor Rodrigo Duterte’s daughter Sara, argued that the voters’ list of the Comelec is not reliable in cases of conflicts.

Proliferation of candidates feared to confuse voters

Pity the poor voters across the Philippines who haven’t yet made up their minds before stepping into a polling booth on voting day itself. They may be in for a shock.

There are 10 candidates for president, eight for vice president, 61 candidates for 12 senatorial slots and 187 party-list aspirants for one slot. Plus there are an innumerable number of provincial and local candidates to choose from.

If the numbers are not enough to intimidate a voter, the prospect of his or her ballot being invalidated because of a slight mistake should be. Talk about pressure.
