According to Atty. Glenn Chong, Bongbong Marcos’ protest is nearing its end. The revision in Iloilo and Camarines Sur is almost finished. Furthermore, 1284 ballot boxes are being retrieved for Negros Oriental. This is the last province of the 3 provinces set by PET for the recount. If Justice Caguioa’s timetable would be followed, the revision should be finished by November. Depending on the numbered of recovered votes in his favor, he can then decide to continue to other places or stop to fast-track the decision.

Checking the Validity of Marcos’ Heavy Losses in Negros Occidental

Negros Oriental is one of the 20 provinces that is being protested. This is as Dumaguete City Election Officer Gildu Agoncillo discloses. On the records, Leni Robredo had 255,000 votes while Marcos loses heavily with only 66,000 votes. This is the biggest difference all throughout the country by the percentage. Hence, Negros Oriental is third on the list of the three pilot provinces.



Atty. Chong’s Analysis of the Protest

Atty. Chong thinks that we will finally know how much votes will Robredo still have over Marcos’. That is if there would still be any left. Furthermore, he thinks that if we get to this point, Marcos will have a substantial recovery. The protest will then continue, as the second stage.

Procedural Verdict

At the second stage, If Marcos completely overtakes Robredo’s votes that she can’t take back with her counter-protest, he can then withdraw the protest on the remaining provinces so it won’t take more time. Because, at this point, the show will be over for Robredo and the yellows.



Justification of Robredo’s Camp

According to Robredo’s legal counsel, Emil Maranon, If the complaint was dismissed then there would be no need to do the recount on the 17 other provinces. The recount of the 17 provinces depends on the recount of the pilot provinces. They are still hoping for a miracle to happen.




Election Hearing Development

According to Chong, Not only was the votes stolen from the people but this syndicate or the Smartmatic-Comelec connivance insults Filipinos. Consequently, Senator Koko Pimentel says that Smartmatic would have to answer on who among their employees were watching porn using the DNS server while the votes were being counted. That’s how lightly he is taking the country’s security measures during elections.

Atty. Chong Uncovers the Election Syndicate’s Technique and Connivance

By: Elena Grace Flores

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.




Concrete Evidence

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.

Atty. Chong Points Out Where the Possible Election Results were Sliced Out

election





By: Elena Grace Flores

Atty. Glenn Chong insinuates where the possible cheating can happen during the election results transmissions. That coincides with another group’s decryption analysis in the middle of the cue server. Each individual file split into around 11 tallies. Possible cheating can happen where the votes can be divided into these tallies to favor the operator’s bets.

[VIDEO]: Atty. Glenn Chong explains his analysis of where the election results can be sliced out to favor a candidate.




Chopped-Up Tallies

Exploring the information on the previous poll elections brings us with more issues. As Chong presents, there were cases where the ballots were out of sequence or were just simply missing. He explains that there is a fourth queueing server.  The server works by disaggregating the results from the VCM, breaking up a file into 11 or 13 files. Furthermore, some of these chopped up tallies were transmitted to the corresponding servers asynchronously.



Unsatisfactory Answers from the Comelec

The Comelec is not being consistent in what the purpose of the fourth server is. Jose Tolentino, the Executive Director refers to it as a “meet me room”, basically a platform to bring in information coming from different telcos. However, another official explains that it serves as a backup server.


Doubtful Credibility of the Election

Smartmatic’s defense that no complaints or cases of the system altering the results is generally flawed. However, there are presented cases of different results from the VCM and a manual recount, brought about by Chong and another resource person.



Misleading News

What happened during the proceedings is certainly newsworthy. Chong’s revelations really bring out serious election irregularities. However, the media are ignoring these. Consequently, Rappler chooses to focus more on Chong’s association with the Marcoses.




Media Blackout on the Election Hearing

There were no reports about these bombshell revelations by Chong being featured on TV newscasts 6 pm shows. Newspapers offered no coverage on the matter both in print and online. Furthermore, even on Facebook, Chong’s posts are being marked as spam, even those reshared by his followers.

Porn Detected by Chong: Election Committee Urged to Enhance Comelec’s Election System Security

election





By: Elena Grace Flores

Atty. Glenn Chong said that the digital election system must be a private network. All servers are within the network. However, he uncovers that access to Google, Yahoo, Facebook, and X-Hub were undertaken. Yes, someone was watching porn videos. Accessing them can be blocked because this is a security threat. Somebody within the DNS is accessing these sites while the election transmissions were going on.

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,”

Atty. Glenn Chong to Election Committee: Who’s Lying? Me or the Comelec?

election





By: Elena Grace Flores

Atty. Glenn Chong explains in various circumstances the anomalies found based on the evidence gathered. He said that although the final total of the election counts tallied in the end, the questionable steps remained. He calls the Comelec representative a liar when he insists that the results should not be disputed because of the matching tallies. Then, challenges the Election oversight committee to issue a verdict on who is lying? He or the Comelec?

Chong’s Election Analogy

At one instance, Atty. Chong uses an analogy of a passenger jeep as the VCM. He said that in the transmission of votes 5 men and a midget got into the vehicle. However, during the tallying of the results, or on the way back, only 2 men made it. The 3 and the midget disappears.



Comelec’s Defense

To quell doubts about the automated polls, the Commission on Elections (Comelec) said it required its international certification entity (ICE) to review the system for transmitting election results in 2019.  This review covers the source code, or the master blueprint, of the transmission system. This is on top of the source code review of the vote-counting machines (VCMs), the election management system (EMS), and the consolidation and canvassing system (CCM). Therefore, it is concluded that the Comelec and Smartmatic representatives who attended the hearing did not really understand how their system works.


Possible Process of Slicing Up Counts

Atty. Chong also insinuates that he can prove how can Smartmatic’s system sliced up the scores of the candidates to favor their bets. He said that all we know are the total scores when they are transmitted by the servers. Chong is certain that he can unlock the mystery behind the 11 tallies found and the underlying cheating mechanics if given the chance to present his findings.



Who is Lying?

At one point, Chong’s attention was called out not to use derogatory words during the Senate hearing. He apologized but insists that the Committee should declare who is lying. If he is not favored by the Senate, he would then present all his evidence to point out how exactly the digital cheatings were made.




Senator Gordon’s Take

Senator Dick Gordon is passionate about the issue. He said that if you do not follow the law, it is already clear cheating. That’s why he’s thankful that Senator Koko Pimental is in charge of the election hearing and not him because he is a lot calmer. You can debate all you want but in the Philippines, it takes a lot of time to change the course of a case, he said. He just hopes that people won’t give up on this.
