Comelec seen to junk parallel manual count

Posted by akosistella on April 29, 2010


MANILA, Philippines – The Commission on Elections (Comelec) is expected to junk the proposal for a parallel manual count and push through instead with a random manual vote audit for the May 10 polls, according to sources.

Comelec Commissioner Rene Sarmiento said the poll body has reached a unanimous decision and the ruling will be made public either today or tomorrow.

“The resolution is now awaiting signatures of all the commissioners, but we will release it today or Friday. Our decision is unanimous, but I just cannot speak in behalf of the commission,” Sarmiento said.

First day of local absentee voting orderly – AFP

MANILA, Philippines – The first day of absentee voting for members of the military and police voting ahead of election day on May 10 went smoothly yesterday.

The Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) reported the first day of voting proceeded without a glitch, though only half of the more than 19,000 registered soldiers cast their ballots.

Col. Ricardo Nepomuceno, spokesman for the AFP’s Task Force HOPE (Honest, Orderly and Peaceful Elections), said they expect more soldiers to cast their votes in various military camps today.
