PCOS demo set for Negros info officers

Bacolod City (25 February) -- A combined team from the Commission of Election led by Provincial Elections Supervisor Lawyer Jessie Suarez will conduct a demonstration today, Feb. 25, on the Precinct Counting Optical Scan or PCOS to members of the Negros Association of Government Information Officers and Liaisons (NAGIOL) at the Governor's Hall, Provincial Capitol Building.

With Suarez are Bago City Election Officer Atty. Mavil V. Majarucon and Himamaylan City Election Officer Atty. Katrina L. Trinio and other Comelec staff.

Philippine Information Agency Regional Director Lawyer Janet Mesa said the activity will be beneficial both to the Comelec for their voter's education program while Information Officers can re-echo what they can learn in the demonstration through their information activities like radio programs and fora back in their locality.

An open forum will follow after the demonstration to clear out important matters and issues surrounding the first-ever automated election in the country.

No less than President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, herself, announced Comelec has assured her that the automated elections will proceed as scheduled erasing further doubts on the fears expressed by administration critics and detractors.

Apprehensions on the capacity of the supplier to deliver electronics machines to be used during the voting have also waned after the agency has satisfactorily answered queries and the bulk of the hard wares already delivered. (PIA-LOL) [top]
