At the start of the Senate Hearing, both Comelec and Smartmatic was looking very confident. They seem to have a well-prepared script ready. Because of these scripted answers, they incurred the rage of Senator Tito Sotto. Sotto feels that they are trying to prove him wrong on his accusations of election fraud. He asserts that he would not have delivered the privilege speech if he wasn’t certain of his information, evidence and witnesses. Furthermore, Sotto says that he will bring out his witness at the next hearing.

Revealing the Conniving Culprits
This is where the syndicate starts to crumble. Chairman Abas now deviates from the script in an effort to save himself. Consequently, he is jeopardizing the others. Those in connivance with them tried to protect Comelec, but the assault was now relentless.
Senator Gordon’s Lecture
Senator Richard Gordon also lectured the syndicate. He also presented the Botong Pinoy voting system that can replace Smartmatic. Even worse, he stands that Comelec should have been sacked when it was under Andres Bautista. The fact that while the election was ongoing, there was someone watching porn on the DNS server is already too much.
A Party-list’s Testimony
Hours before the elections were over, the CONSLA party-list group listed 555,896 votes from the Transparency Server of the PPCRV. They secured screenshots from the Transparency Server information. They were in rank 14, which is within the winning parties. However, after a few days, the results came out with them only having 213,814 votes. The Comelec Central server gave them 342,082 votes less than what they have listed, losing their spot in the winning circle. Atty. Glenn Chong reveals all these information in the Senate who’s Facebook account was temporarily disabled right after the hearing.
Cannot be Denied by the Commission on Election
The syndicate can hardly get out of this one because the Transparency Server and the Comelec Central Server get their results from the same source, the VCMs. Both should have a copy of the results, but the mystery is where did the 342,082 votes for CONSLA go. Comelec in connivance with Smartmatic as well as PPCRV must be controlling the votes for those who can pay them. However, in the face of this issue, Comelec’s answer is only that they will look into it.
The CONSLA have complained about this issue long before. However, the Comelec still doesn’t have answers? This same thing also happened with the ANG NARS party-list. They were summoned to the PICC for proclamation however just 30 mins before, Comelec brings out a new resolution. Both CONSLA and ANG NARS were dropped.
