Comelec to convene nat’l meet to discuss what’s wrong with electoral system

DAVAO CITY (MindaNews/26 July) — The Commission on Elections announced it will convene a two-day national gathering of elections stakeholders next month to look into the problems haunting the country’s electoral system, Comelec chair Benjamin Abalos said.

Abalos told reporters in a late afternoon press conference at the Marco Polo Thursday that they will invite all groups who have a stake in the elections to discuss the problems and propose solutions on what he said was an electoral system fraught with “perception of cheating.”

“The commission is calling a big conference of all stakeholders of the elections to address all the ills and problems that beset the elections throughout the years,” he said.

He described the gathering to be similar to the Supreme Court in its summit on the extra-judicial killings earlier this month. But Abalos denied the SC inspired the commission to do it, saying they have planned it long before the SC summit.
