Internal rigging’ fears aired

Posted by akosistella on April 21, 2010


THE “greatest threat” to the May 10 automated election is internal rigging as it could take place before or after the elections, Christian Monsod, a former chair of the Commission on Elections, warned yesterday.

“It is possible to rig the (automated) system and for the elections, from all appearances, to appear free, fair and orderly,” Monsod said during Tuesday’s membership meeting of the Makati Business Club (MBC) and the Management Association of the Philippines (MAP) at the Manila Peninsula Hotel in Makati City.

He explained that internal rigging before the elections can take place “through a corrupted source code or the installation of a different source code in the PCOS (precinct count optical scan) machine, and after the election, through the transmission and during the canvassing of the votes.”

Poll watchdog raises warning over spare PCOS machines

MANILA, Philippines – Where are the spare voting machines?

This was the question of election watchdogs, which raised fears that the spare Precinct Count Optical Scan (PCOS) machines may be used to cheat in the May 10 elections.

In a letter to Commission on Elections (Comelec) chairman Jose Melo, the consortium Compact for Peace and Democratic Elections (Compact) voiced concerns on the safekeeping of the PCOS machines.
