‘Poll fraud probe won’t delay proclamation of president, VP’
Posted by akosistella on May 20, 2010
The ongoing investigation on alleged irregularities during the May 10 nationwide automated polls will not delay the proclamation of the country’s next president and vice-president, Congress leaders assured on Wednesday.
“It [the investigation] will not affect the canvassing. It will not delay the canvassing,” Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile said in an interview aired over Bombo Radyo.
The House Committee on Electoral Reforms and Suffrage on Wednesday held a hearing on alleged fraud that took place during the May polls, which included pre-shading of ballots and transmission of results not coming from the official automated counting machines.
