PIA Press Release

Aklan info officers set "date" with Comelec's PCOS machine

by Venus G. Villanueva

Kalibo, Aklan (24 March) -- Aklan's information officers from its 17 municipalities, together with those from national government agencies here will have a close encounter with the much-talked about Precinct Count Optical Scan (PCOS) machine on March 27, 2010 at the Sangguniang Panlalawigan Session Hall in the conduct of a Briefing/Orientation on the Automated Elections and PCOS Machine Demonstration.

The briefing will be spearheaded by COMELEC-Kalibo's Election Officer, Lorena Tumbagahan, in coordination with the Philippine Information Agency and the Office of the Sangguniang Panlalawigan headed by Vice Governor Gabrielle V. Calizo-Quimpo.

The PCOS machine will be used in the country's conduct of its first-ever automated elections.

Members of the local media, as well as Sangguniang Bayan secretaries, are also expected to attend the briefing.

Government Information Officers groups in other provinces of Western Visayas had already their Briefing/PCOS machine demonstration in their respective areas.

The activity aims to equip information officers and the media with enough information and the right ideas about the automated elections as well as to let them see for themselves how the PCOS machine works.

In turn, it is hoped that they will relay to their families, relatives, friends the information they have obtained from the activity, to give the latter enough knowledge and confidence in participating in the country's historic political exercise.

For its part, COMELEC-Aklan has already winded-up its PCOS Machine Roadshow Demonstration in Aklan's 17 municipalities, as well as its trainings for its Board of Election Inspectors (BEIs) in Aklan. (PIA) [top]
