Posted by akosistella on April 16, 2010


ROXAS CITY, Capiz , Philippines  – Liberal Party (LP) presidential candidate Sen. Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III disclosed yesterday that he had received information about “special operations” or cheating being planned by certain groups to manipulate the May 10 elections in Mindanao.

He said that local officials, including those not allied with the LP, have pledged not to participate in any plan to cheat or derail the elections in their jurisdictions.

Aquino said the special operations or cheating during elections had been known to be going on in the country but the problem was that nobody had ever been convicted of an election offense.
