Is the COMELEC covering up electoral fraud to make Bongbong Marcos lose the VP race?

Only a systems audit can prove that election results were not affected when a Smartmatic technician changed the program in the middle of canvassing of votes on election day, the 9th of May 2016. Apparently, that is something that is too difficult for some to understand. Even Senator Bam Aquino found it hard to comprehend. Or maybe he just refused to acknowledge Senator and Vice Presidential candidate Ferdinand Marcos Jr’s request for a systems audit. That was how he came across when he kept asking Marcos Jr if he had proof of his allegation of fraud.

Bongbong Marcos (with son, Sandro) worked hard to campaign nationwide only to fall victim to electoral fraud.
Bongbong Marcos (with son, Sandro) worked hard to campaign nationwide only to fall victim to electoral fraud.
Frankly, at some point during the recent Senate exchange between the two senators, Marcos Jr appeared understandably frustrated at the younger Aquino when he had to keep reiterating that one wouldn’t know the extent of damage the tampering had done to the program unless IT experts are allowed to open the electronic voting machines for inspection. But the incumbent President’s cousin, Aquino, seemed to be implying that Marcos Jr should produce evidence first before alleging there was fraud.

Aquino came prepared to grill Marcos Jr but it was a good thing Marcos Jr knew what he was talking about. As a government agency, the COMELEC is not covered by the Bill of Rights. Marcos Jr did not have to produce proof of cheating to request the COMELEC to grant his request. The COMELEC is obliged to respond and explain to complainants like him and also to the public when they suspect fraudulent activities. Indeed, the circumstances surrounding the period over which Marcos Jr’s numbers started to slow down outraged a lot of concerned citizens. Some observed that his votes seemed to have stopped coming in around 7.30 pm and then later on, his almost one million vote lead over his closest rival Congresswoman Leni Robredo started to decline. Statistician David Yap observed a linear pattern in the way Marcos Jr’s lead over Robredo narrowed. For every 1k votes of Marcos Jr, 45k went to Robredo.

Unfortunately, a lot of people have noticed that Senator Aquino doesn’t seem to be working in the interest of transparency and clean elections. He acted like Robredo’s lawyer and came to her defence. It’s worth mentioning that Aquino was Robredo’s campaign manager. That role definitely conflicts with his role as a senator. A senator should prioritise the interests of the people, not his clients. To be fair, Aquino eventually conceded to Marcos Jr that he will also support calls for auditing of the electronic voting system.

What is also suspect is the way the COMELEC is taking its time deciding whether or not to allow an audit of the system to be undertaken. As of this writing, they have not confirmed if they will agree to Marcos Jr’s request. Commissioner Rowena Guanzon said they did not get to decide on Marcos Jr’s request as of yet. COMELEC Chairman Andres Bautista seems to be hiding from the media by being “unavailable for comment”:

Comelec Commissioner Rowena Guanzon Guanzon said the Comelec did not vote on Marcos’ appeal during the poll body’s regular meeting on Tuesday.

After the meeting, other Comelec commissioners told reporters to ask Comelec Chairman Andres Bautista for updates on the appeal of Marcos.

Bautista, however, declined to speak to reporters who sent him text messages and waited for more than two hours outside his office on Tuesday.

It seems someone from the COMELEC just wants the public to move on and forget there was tampering of the program. Ignoring complaints from the public is something COMELEC is good at. They did the same thing in 2010 and 2013 elections after concerned citizens also filed complaints. They expect the public to eventually lose interest in the issue as the days pass.

COMELEC Chairman Andres Bautista has refined the art of ignoring electoral fraud complaints.
COMELEC Chairman Andres Bautista has refined the art of ignoring electoral fraud complaints.
Bautista, who is a known Liberal Party supporter, was said to be a former Mar Roxas campaign manager. His poker face seems to be working to his advantage. He probably thinks he just needs to repeat his lame excuse “change is only cosmetic” and get away with it. Some people are accusing him of being in cahoots with Smartmatic to help rig the election results to favour a few Liberal Party candidates, not just Robredo. They say he had the password to the program and the Smartmatic technician couldn’t have done it without help from someone from the COMELEC. As someone else said, only the administration-led COMELEC would have the ability to commit fraud.

Hopefully, pressure from the public will not wane this time around. Filipinos should not waste this golden opportunity to expose criminal syndicates behind electoral fraud. Otherwise, this will happen again in future elections. Vote buying and other election-related fraudulent activities including tampering of electronic voting machines became massive, blatant and even acceptable under President Benigno Simeon Aquino’s term. His term should be called the scam years because of all the scams that proliferated under his watch.

The recent election has unfortunately exposed the deep-seated division in Philippine society. A lot of Filipinos turn a blind eye to breach in protocol perpetrated by Smartmatic and the COMELEC’s lack of action because of their dislike for Marcos Jr. They seem to think it is okay for him to lose even if he is cheated. Their hatred for the Marcoses makes them believe the end justifies the means. Anti-Marcos advocates also show their irrational behaviour when they lash out at concerned citizens who try to help maintain the sanctity of the ballot by accusing them of being “pro-Marcos”. They also bring up Martial Law atrocities even when the issue is about electoral fraud. It has become difficult to talk to some Filipinos who are still stuck in the Martial Law years. They are suffering from tunnel vision.

The perpetrators of electoral fraud are hoping the divisions in Philippine society will distract Filipinos from focusing on the real problem, which is the fact that the right of the people to choose their leaders is for sale to the highest bidder. The sad truth is, there is no real democracy in the Philippines. Millions of votes are being discarded and channelled to candidates who have the means to pay criminal syndicates. Only the Filipino people can end this vicious cycle if they want to.

Some of the Filipinos have “Obsessive Compulsive Fear of Martial Law”. The Aquinos , Mar Roxas,Leni Robredo, Porky Drilon and the Liberal Party are conspirators of this Election Fraud. COMELEC Bautista, who is a cousin of Aquino, is the Mastermind of this Election Fraud. Maybe, they Bribed SMARTMATIC to commit the Election Fraud for them. It was a new electronic version of “Electronic Dagdag Bawas”…an executable file was inserted, at the right moment, at the right time… I recommend the following agencies to help in the investigation: (1) U.S. Election Assistance Commission – can accredit in test laboratories, the PCOS… Read more »

Sir even if we’ll have manual recount at this point, is it a guarantee that it’s fraud free? I saw some videos that only one person shaded ballots and the witness named LP candidates as the sole beneficiaries of the act..further, there are reports circulating that ballot boxes were kept at Drilon’s office. If this will be proven right, then I’d say election in our country is a farce..and i will not take part again in this play for the rest of my life.

Don’t waste your time with this political “whore” (Elaine). She’s used to avoiding the the real issue of how the entire country is questioning the integrity of COMELEC, and, how a virtually unknown widow became the vice-president of this fucked up country.

Elaine is used to telling bullshits because her entire life has been surrounded by lies and deceit, mainly by supporting a Yellow Party that is made up “Chekwas,” that is raping the country and impoverishing the people. Elaine and her family probably benefit from her Yellow Party and don’t want to see it go away.

Why did the Aquinos portrayed themselves as heroes and saints?

They are in the history books, and ABS-CBN advertisements. There are no write ups or advertisements on them as: Japanese Imperialists collaborators; murderers; land scammers; political opportunists; corrupt; NPA supporters; etc…

They named everything on their honor. Anyway, history will be the final judge ! The truth will come out !

I bet he’s a richfag who only benefited from the so-called “improving economy” of noybita.

Each candidate “behaved” well in the hope of being judged worthy of election. However, this system was disastrous when the country had become corrupt. For then it was not the most virtuous but the most powerful who stood for election, and the weak, even if virtuous, were too frightened to run for office.

Failipinos constantly hear about voter fraud…but Failipinos don’t see huge amounts of vote fraud out there.

Leni is also one of those people who is keeping the investigation to take place already claiming victory despite issues and evidence of anomaly. Her loyalty is to her party not the people otherwise, as a public servant, she’ll ask for a recount or investigation upon the discovery of possible electoral fraud, to redeem integrity of Philippine election. Proving and disproving electoral fraud, ending it at best, is a big contribution to the good of the society rather than winning a VP post in a dishonest election. But only an independent mind, and not a puppet, would make that choice.… Read more »

There is no electoral fraud. It is only in the mind of BongBong Marcos. In fact, Bongbong declined to present proof about cheating in the vice presidential race when pressed by an opposing senator. In short, Bongbong is just pulling horse shit allegations up his ass, and his ilokano supporters and marcos apologist are shitting their pants. Someone here also said, “what happened to the 2 million INC votes,” insinuating that none of the 2 million INC votes were counted, or not all of them. Yet that person did not offer an ioto of evidence that all of the INC… Read more »

Unfortunately, it seems Bombong somewhat has a point.

There are reports in my relative’s home in Basilan that most of the opposition votes are, wait for it, ZERO. ALL of the votes are for the Liberal Party candidates, includes Mar and Leni.

If something has a plethora of bullshitry, it’s your EMO-inducing anti-Marcos rhetoric. Hate to break it to you, but barking on the wrong tree.

It seems that youre the gullible one if you believe the silence and evasiveness of the COMELEC, a body you can’t even jail or execute.

Here is an article by a certain Andrew Lim about The Marcoses, including the Ilokanos and Marcos Apologists and his cronies. With Bongbong Marcos running for Vice-President in 2016 sans standard bearer and party nomination, one easily sees it as a tactical move, one that sets a higher future objective: becoming President of the Republic. It is a test, now or never, and would be the Marcos family’s last chance since Bongbong’s siblings are not interested and their matriarch is near the end of her life. A last chance to artificially cleanse their legacy and revise history. A common rationale… Read more »

This is a TROLL post. I just want to tell you that certain Andrew Lim is also a crook like yourself using saying “apologize, and back it up by returning the rest of the ill-gotten wealth”. By the way, why would he do that? So that the crooks like the PCGG can plunder them again? They claimed that they have half of the $10 billion but they couldn’t even pay a single Martial Law victim? Why is that? Of course, he will not apologize. Beside the point that this is a high stake political power play, gosh, this is a… Read more »

Andrew Lim is a habitue of Joeam.com and raissarobles.com, both staunchly anti-Marcos blogs. He swallows everything against Marcos and spouts them out like indubitable Truth. His opinions are sacred Truth and Facts, never to be refuted. Say anything in favor of Marcos, he demands proof and references, not just proof and references, they must pass his standard, which means, only those that he agrees with, else they are dubious. He also demands for credentials, addresses, educational background, social/familial background, regional affiliation,and whatnots, because if you are pro-Marcos, there must be something wrong about you and any of these data would… Read more »

Ok. So if you don’t want your kids voting for Marcos, bow down before them and apologize for your generation’s neglect and corruption.

There seems to be a lot of “Millenial bashing” from this guy and from the posts he’s been copying and pasting in here. Frankly, its disappointing, because really, what you are seeing from the Millenials is a reaction to the shortcomings of the generation that raised them. If the owners of this site will indulge me, I’d like to spam a post I wrote on my blog on this topic from the perspective of a Millenial. MARTIAL LAW AMNESIA? NOT! This article is a response to a Philippine Star Opinion Piece Written by Crispin C. Maslog dated April 12, 2016.… Read more »

Your photo caption says: “Bongbong Marcos (with son, Sandro) worked hard to campaign nationwide only to fall victim to electoral fraud. I think what’s more depressing is the sight of senior citizens who voted for BBM. Those old folks who braved the summer heat just to go to the polling centers. Those grandparents who waited patiently for their turn to cast their votes inside the hot polling precincts. Those lolos and lolas who had to endure some rude behavior from some poll workers because they have difficulty understanding some instructions about the voting procedures. The same can be said to… Read more »
