Some 61 million Filipinos are prepared to cast their vote tomorrow, but is the Commission on Elections ready for the nationwide exercise that could turn ugly if mismanaged? The question is being asked on the eve of Election Day, because disturbing issues continued to swirl around the Comelec until yesterday on factors affecting the holding of an orderly and honest midterm election. Many voters have complained that their names were missing from the lists, that Comelec’s online Precinct Finder was not working, that SD (Secure Digital) cards of hundreds of voting machines had been corrupted, that some ballot marking pens were smearing, that the accreditation of the poll watchdog Namfrel had been disapproved, that the opposition party designation had been given to the Nacionalista Party making it a kind of “company union” working with the Duterte majority party, etc. The election would have the effect of telling President Duterte whether to continue his style of … [Read more...] about Voters all set, but is Comelec ready?
