Hybrid Election Pill already in the Senate, said Senator Imee Marcos.
Preventing Fraud Using Hybrid Election System
Senator Imee Marcos chairs the Senate Committee on Electoral Reforms and People’s Participation. She endorses Senate Bill 1950 or the Hybrid Election Act recently. The plenary may approve it soon. This is to ensure the transparency and credibility of the electoral process. It aims to make fraud impossible to happen. Just like her brother, Bongbong Marcos’ case against the sitting VP, Leni Robredo in 2016.
Vying for the Experience of Advanced Countries
Marcos said that other countries like Hongkong, Germany, the UK and other countries adapt this manual and digital combined processes after their unsatisfactory experience with the total election automation. We should follow suit, said Marcos.
The technicalities might be a bit complicated but she trusts her colleagues in the Senate to facilitate their respective responsibilities. Senators Grace Poe, Ping Lacson, and Bato dela Rosa to name a few. Marcos is certain that this change can truly provide people the results they voted for. Thus, retaining democracy in the country.
