Palace assuages concern of cheating in May polls

MALACANANG allayed Tuesday the concern of the public that there would be cheating in the May elections.

This was after a Pulse Asia survey came out showing that 39 percent of the Filipinos expect cheating in the upcoming polls.

"Kaisa ng Commission on Elections (Comelec) ang pamahalaan sa layuning tiyakin ang isang maayos, mapayapa at malinis na halalan sa Mayo. Kailangang tukuyin ang mga agam-agam at pangamba hinggil sa alegasyong maaaring magkaroon ng pandaraya sa halalan," said Communications Secretary Herminio Coloma Jr.

He said that since 2010, the country has transformed the elections from manual to automated.

Coloma said the Palace expects that the automated polls would continue to improve to prevent concerns on cheating.

"Kailangan ding pag-igtingin pa ang kampanyang pang-edukasyon upang maging ganap ang kaalaman at pag-unawa ng mga mamamayan hinggil sa automated voting system at upang tuluyang mapawi ang lahat ng alinlangan nila hinggil sa integridad ng sistemang ito," he said. (SDR/Sunnex)
