Automated Philippine Elections Push Through for 2010

Saturday, July 04, 2009

It's a nice day today. See what talking could do to people? They have all agreed to push through with the automated Philippine elections on 2010. TIM and SMARTMATIC brainstormed and worked out a win win deal for both companies since today is the deadline for all things related to this. I knew it would turn out like this, otherwise we all would go back to manual elections. The 2010 election will be administered by the Commission on Elections in compliance with the Republic Act No. 9369, also known as Amended Computerization Act of 2007. It will be the first national computerized election in the history of the Philippines.

I just hope when it comes we would not be recognizing failure of elections on some parts of the country where often times there are security risks and lots of cheating. Yeah, I know how remarkable that is to even know there is massive cheating... I mean everybody knows it already!

I don't know if that is going to change, but it would be never really nice to stay that way forever. I hope it changes, I hope it all works out. If the results don't come out as sudden as they say it will be then there would be a lot of speculation that it did not work.

Oh wait, I gotta stop dreaming... Megan Fox is eating Gummy Bears... LOLZ!
