Comelec puts upland villages in 5 Nueva Vizcaya towns on satellite line

by Ben Moses Ebreo

Bayombong, Nueva Vizcaya (February 15) -- The Commission on Elections (COMELEC) has confirmed several upland villages in the province with no telecommunications signal, prompting them to install a satellite-direct equipment to ensure the operations during the automated elections in May this year.

"We have just completed the sight survey in Nueva Vizcaya and some of the upland barangays have no signal," lawyer Abraham Asuncion, COMELEC provincial director said.

He identified the municipalities with barangays without signal as Alfonso Castaneda, Ambaguio, Kasibu, Villaverde and Quezon.

According to Asuncion, they have placed the signal-poor barangays under a direct satellite equipment called Bgan Satellites to ensure the operation of the Precinct Count Optimcal Scan(PCOS) machines in these areas.

He also added that they have scheduled public demonstrations and seminar on PCOS machines this month to orient and educate election officers and Department of Education supervisors including voters, allied organizations and politicians.

"We will do this in coordination with non-government organizations and the Parish Pastoral Council for Responsible Voting (PPCRV) among others," he said.

Asuncion also added that they have scheduled seminars for teachers who will be helping on the conduct of the automated elections in May this year.

"We are optimistic that this year's elections will be more credible compared in the past because human intervention is already lessened," he said. (PIA NVizcaya) [top]
