Senators reassuring the COMELEC? That’s what this news article says, and I have every reason to believe it. After all, if the COMELEC doesn’t get the money to conduct the elections, we could very well end up with only twelve senators. Naturally, that sorry state of affairs cannot be allowed to come about.
Incidentally, the COMELEC Chairman is Benjamin S. Abalos Sr., not Jr. as reported by the article. Jr. – also known as Ben-Hur Abalos – is a Member of the House of Representatives.
