THE Liberals and Nacionalistas are now tangling over who gets to get the 6th copy of the election returns on Election Day. To be entitled to the copy requires Comelec designation as the dominant minority party—a kind of bureaucratic throwback to the two-party era. William Gatchalian of the Nationalist People’s Coalition summarizes the strategic advantages of the designation: “First, the [access to] election returns [ERs]” is the traditional advantage; but in addition, he says, “in the computerized system you also get your own server, so the flow of information [from Comelec to the party] is faster.”

But then why is Gatchalian of the NPC talking about the advantages of dominant minority party status, when it’s the NP that wants it?
