Comelec prepares for manual audit

Posted by akosistella on April 26, 2010


MANILA, Philippines – The Commission on Elections (Comelec) is preparing for a random manual auditing of elections results, according to Henrietta de Villa, head of the poll body’s committee on random manual audit.

She said part of the plan is the deployment of an additional 3,500 public school teachers to ensure the accuracy of random manual auditing.

De Villa said the committee has recommended the creation of a special board of election inspectors to undertake the manual audit.

Not enough time to prepare for manual vote count — NP

DAVAO CITY, Philippines — The Nacionalista Party team of presidential candidate and Senator Manuel Villar and his running mate, Senator Loren Legarda, supported, on Sunday, the Commission on Elections’ decision to disallow a parallel manual count pushed by certain sectors, including a senator running under the Liberal Party.

“Two weeks to go (before elections)—I don’t see how it can still be pursued. It should have been planned a long time ago … to ensure that there will be no cheating in the elections,” said Villar, adding: “It is a good idea if it can still be done, so that we are sure (of the vote count) in case cheating occurs.”

Villar said preparing for a parallel manual count was already next to “impossible” because of time constraints.

This was revealed by National Citizens’ Movement for Free Elections (Namfrel) chairman Jose Cuisia, who said delays in the delivery of ballots and other poll paraphernalia prompted the rescheduling of the mock elections.

“There are also problems in the delivery of the Precinct Count Optical Scan machines,” Cuisia added.
