‘Stop Comelec from destroying CF cards’

Posted by akosistella on May 18, 2010


THREE losing presidential candidates have asked the Supreme Court for a temporary restraining order on the Commission on Elections to prevent it from destroying the compact flash (CF) cards that malfunctioned before and during the May 10 elections.

At the same time, the petitioners—Sen. Ana Consuelo “Jamby” Madrigal, Nicanor Perlas and John Carlos “JC” delos Reyes—asked the Court to stop the poll body from implementing Comelec Resolution 8914 because it violates the people’s constitutional guaranteed right to information.

This is because the resolution has required affected Boards of Canvassers (BOCs) to delete from the laptops used in the canvass of votes data on the results of the final testing and sealing (FTS) of the CF cards.

House panel to hear allegations against Smartmatic

SPEAKER Prospero Nograles yesterday ordered the House committee on suffrage and electoral reforms to exercise Congress’ oversight functions to determine the truth behind allegations that the country’s first automated elections were tainted with fraud and irregularities.

“I’ve ordered the committee to look into all the complaints regarding the conduct of the automated elections in the face of the allegations of electronic fraud and pre-determined election results or ‘hocus PCOS’ (precinct count optical scan machines),” he said.

Officials of the Commission on Elections and its automation partner Smartmatic are expected to attend the hearing and shed light on the concerns that congressmen will raise.
