System Security

With the access to public sites not blocked, Chong fears that the security of the digital poll system may have been compromised. However, the Smartmatic representative seems to remain clueless. Moreover, we can remember him not being able to explain how the source code works. Consequently, Chong is urging the oversight committee to look into this issue.



Election 2019 Preparation

Before the Philippines set forth for the 2019 elections, Comelec officials, stakeholders, and lawmakers are set for a hearing on the automated poll system. The Joint Congressional Oversight Committee on the Automated Election System conducted this on the 13th of September.


Attendees and Purpose

Lawmakers from both the Senate and the House of Representatives compose the JCOC. They are set to tackle the recommendations of the Comelec Advisory Council for the 2019 elections. Furthermore, they also need to discuss enhancements on the automated election system as well as the problems encountered last elections.



Tolentino’s Promise

Quoting Jose Tolentino Jr, the Comelec Executive Director, “To eliminate these kinds of doubts, for the 2019 elections, aside from the source code of the VCM, the EMS, and the CCS, we have required the international certification entity to also look at the source code of the transmission system.” This is what he said on the hearing of the JCOC on AES.




Hearing Panelists

Comelec officials, election watchdogs, and technology experts served as panelists at the hearing. Chairman Sheriff Abas led the Comelec officials. Moreover, Tolentino also gave a view of what the situation so far is, on the AES. To quote him, The Comelec has “purchased 97,350 units of vote-counting machines, and all of them passed through hardware acceptance tests,”

    I think the above info is something new and the first time I’ve heard it. If that is true it must be serious and must be reported to the concerned authority.
