Perlas calls for three-month postponement of automated elections
Independent presidential candidate Nicanor Perlas and the Partido ng Marangal na Sambayanan (PANGMASA) called for a postponement of the national elections by three months during the presidential forum of Listen Mindanao at the Holy Cross University in Davao City this morning.
Perlas who raised the strong possibility of an ‘electronic Garci’ two months ago, said that there is “no way of determining the real winners of the automated election within 48 hours as the Comelec announced.”
RP politics has turned nasty – FVR
MANILA, Philippines – Former President Fidel Ramos said local politics has turned nasty and is no longer good.
“Garapalan na (It’s brazen),” Ramos said in an interview Thursday night at the New World Hotel in Makati City where he was keynote speaker at a forum sponsored by the German-based Hanns Seidel Foundation.
Ramos did not elaborate but was apparently referring to the infighting within the ruling Lakas-Kampi-CMD and the heated exchange of allegations between the Liberal Party (LP) and the Nacionalista Party (NP). Ramos founded the Lakas party.

Palace to public: Help ensure success of automated polls
MANILA, Philippines – Malacañang decried yesterday people spreading rumors of a failure of elections on May 10 and called on the public to remain vigilant and help the Commission on Elections (Comelec) ensure the successful conduct of the country’s first nationwide automated polls.
The Comelec, on the other hand, dismissed speculations of a failure of elections that could favor President Arroyo, saying it is considering an independent unofficial partial count of the election results.
