PIA Press Release

Comelec PES, most election officers stay put in Aklan

by Venus G. Villanueva

Kalibo, Aklan (7 May) -- COMELEC-Aklan's Provincial Election Supervisor, Atty. Ian Lee Ananoria, as well as most of the province's municipal election officers in Aklan are staying put here for the May 10, 2010 automated polls.

Atty. Ananoria said he welcomes this development, as it would be hard for them already to be deployed to other provinces, with the elections just days away.

"Most municipalities here have the same election officers, except for Balete and Malay, which had new officers from the province of Antique, and Tangalan and Malinao, who exchanged assignments, as they have relatives running for elective positions in their respective areas", Atty. Ananoria said.

Starting today, May 7 up to Saturday, Precinct Count Optical Scan (PCOS) machines will be delivered to various municipalities in Aklan.

Aklan will have 492 PCOS machines, which is equal to the number of precincts in Aklan. Atty. Ananoria assured however, that there will be 30 spare machines for the province.

Board of Election Inspectors (BEIs) composed of public school teachers will be on hand to receive the machines upon delivery, according to the COMELEC, which will be tested and sealed upon receipt of the reconfigured compact flask disk.

Mock elections participated in by 10 voters will also be conducted upon delivery of the machines to test the machines. Ananoria said this is open for everybody in the barangays or polling places to witness.

Ananoria said election results for municipal and provincial officials will be known 48 hours under the automated elections system. (PIA) [top]
