Comelec conducts public demo on PCOS machines in Ifugao

by Vency D. Bulayungan

Lagawe, Ifugao (6 February) -- In line with the voters' education program for the upcoming automated national and local elections, the Commission on Elections conducted a public demonstration on the use of the Precinct Count and Optical Scanner (PCOS) machine last February 5 here.

Provincial Election Officer Lawyer Ricardo Bolintao said that the public, government employees and the teachers witnessed the demonstration.

Bolintao said that their office seeks to expose and provide everyone the necessary personal and first hand information on the operation of the PCOS machines to be used in the May 2010 elections.

"For the orderliness, and honesty of the upcoming elections, we hope to do the same in the 11 municipalities here," Bolintao said.

Bolintao foresees a peaceful conduct of elections here. Unlike in other provinces, Ifugao has not experienced crimes committed in relation to elections or politics since the 1970's. "The province is relatively peaceful and I cannot see any reason for our politicians to harm one another because most of them are even related," he said.

Bolintao believes that poll automation will push through in May 2010. "Let's give poll automation a chance," he said. (PIA-Ifugao) [top]
