Palace cites need to bolster democratic processes

Manila (29 June) -- Malacaņang today rallied the people behind government efforts to strengthen "our democratic processes and institutions, including the election process."

The appeal was made by Press Secretary Cerge Remonde, in a phone-patch interview over dzRB from Hong Kong where President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo made a dialogue with the overseas Filipino workers (OFWs).

Reacting to concerns over the first-ever automation of the Philippine election, Secretary Remonde said: "We really have to work together in order to strengthen our democratic processes and institutions, including the election process."

A priority program of the Arroyo administration, Remonde said the President was grateful to both houses of Congress for the passage of the election automation measure.

She also commended the Commission on Election (Comelec) for doing everything possible to implement the poll automation program.

Remonde was pleased that the Comelec has issued a statement that it will prepare for the worst, referring to possible snags in the poll automation, "because after all that we hope for the best we also must prepare for the worst," Remonde said.

At this stage, "we should all help to strengthen our democratic processes and institutions if we truly love our country," Remonde said. (PIA) [top]
