Maguindanao

The canvassing of the Certificates of Canvass from Maguindanao were just now deferred, pending the appearance of Atty. Lentang Bedol (Maguindanao BOC Chairman) before the National Board of Canvassers. In the meantime, the NBOC proceeded with the canvass of other COCs on deck.

To be canvassed today:

  • Davao del Norte
  • Batangas
  • Cavite
  • Misamis Occidental
  • Misamis Oriental
  • Pasay City
  • Manila
  • Laguna
  • Pangasinan
  • Camarines Norte
  • Isabela

With the 52 already canvassed yesterday, that brings us to 63, which is roughly 60% of the 104 local COCs we need to canvass. Added to the 154 OAV COCs already canvassed,by the end of the day, we will have canvassed at least 217 out of 254 COCs. That’s 85%

Of course, this cannot be called an Official Partial Result, since the only Official Partial results are those released by the Control and Releasing Group.

  1. The Kontra-Daya Alliance has issued a report yesterday, May 21, 2007, that the recently-concluded national election was marred with several cheating-allegations. The Kontra-Daya has condemned the repetition of the cheating mechanisms that happened in the 2004 national election in our country. Many people are wondering the fast-paced changes that took place recently at the magic-12 positions in the senatorial race. Many people are wondering how and why such “unpopular figures” like Recto (the main exponent of higher VAT rates in the senate), Zubiri (a politician who acts like a spokesman of Mrs. Glo Arroyo) and Pichay (the one who shut the door for a thorough investigation of the Hello-Garci controversy at the last congress) could have made it at the magic-12 circle? Was it because of their money? Was it because the controversial Maguindanao votes are now being counted? Was it because the so-called cheating-machinery that was used in the 2004 national election in this country is still functioning properly? Again, I know that only the elitists in the Philippine society would have the interest in manipulating the recently-concluded national election, so that by subverting the people’s will they will continue their rule over and above the Filipino people. The following days will be crucial as the canvassing of votes continues and the possibility of wholesale fraud looms even more. Kontra Daya calls on the people to exercise heightened vigilance and to start sending a strong message to the COMELEC, the AFP and the Arroyo administration that electoral fraud in any form will be politically costly for this country.
