Kontra Daya 2016 starts campaign for credible elections

Convenors and members of the citizens’ election watchdog Kontra Daya trooped to the Commission on Elections last March 7 to press the poll body to hold a clean, peaceful and orderly elections.

When elections in the Philippines have been automated in the 2010 and 2013, Kontra Daya had been instrumental in documenting many cases of fraud using the Precinct Count Optical Scanning machines.

Kontra Daya is again expressing alarm that the new machines will be used to commit fraud as the Comelec is refusing to implement safeguards, such as receipts for voters as well as opening the program source code for scrutiny by other parties.
