Foreign observers glad to see excited voters

By Mai Gevera

Davao City (11 May) -- An observer from the US embassy who visited Davao City and Davao del Sur conducting the automated elections earlier observed enthusiastic voters, excited to cast their votes.

Micheal Pignatello, along with the other foreign observers now in Davao City, also noted the patience shown by most voters as they waited for their turn despite long queues.

They also observed joint efforts shown by various groups just to have an orderly election.

"This election shows how different groups, from government, non-government organizations, and civil society have been working together," he said. (PIA XI) [top]
