Escudero, Maceda hoping PCOS flaws won’t lead to fraud

By |


MANILA, Philippines – Senatorial candidates Francis Escudero and Ernesto Maceda said Tuesday that despite “minor” glitches monitored in the Commission of Elections’ precinct count optical scan (PCOS) machines, they rest their fate on the system, but with a hope that these malfunctions would not lead to fraud.

“Buo ang pag-asa at paniniwala ko na mas magiging maganda ang takbo nito dahil sa karanasan natin last halalan. Yung kumpyansa ko bilang kandidato sa darating na eleksyon ay nasa sistema…,” Escudero said in an interview with Radyo Inquirer 990AM.

(I’m hopeful and confident things will turn out right based on our experience in the last elections. My confidence as a candidate in this coming elections lies on the system…)

Escudero said his confidence in the public’s power to choose the right person to vote remains undented.

For Maceda, the glitches are making him nervous. But he said he is confident that Comelec Chairman Sixto Brillantes will iron out the flaws.

“Wala tayong magagawa kundi magdasal na lang na huwag magkadayaan,” Maceda said.

(All we can do is to pray that fraud won’t take place.)

Escudero is a guest candidate of both the administration coalition Liberal Party and the United Nationalist Alliance (UNA) of Vice President Jejomar Binay.

Maceda is running under UNA.

    Chiz is showing his true colors as UNA loyalist in the company of plunderer, biglang-yaman kuno and immoral leaders.

    I will not waste my vote for any UNA candidates….

      I never trusted Escudero. masydong Balimbing. Lagging namamanka sa dalawang ilog. To undermine Mar Roxas and sided with corrupt Binay is the true test of how corrupt Escudero is .Birds of the same feather flock together. Escudero knew why Binay is now the VP.

    pag natalo, dinaya; pag nanalo, nandaya.  ganyan lang naman ka walang kwenta ang mga kandidato sa pilipinas.  hanggang ngayon hirap tumanggap ng pagkatalo.

    kung ayaw masaktan sa pagkatalo, huwag tumakbo.

    kung ayaw mabansagang nandaya kung manalo, huwag tumakbo.

    kaya sa mga pulitko, manahimik na kayo at sawa na ang mamamayang pilipino sa inyong lahat, kayo’y mga pasakit sa likod ng nagbabayad sa iyo ng sweldo!

    to hope that the pcos flaws will not lead to election fraud definitely is not enough, the gov’t should make sure that it doesn’t

  • les21reago

    Kinikilabutan ako at feeling uneasy kung marinig ko si MACEDA sa TV election ads niya TALKING about corruptions…
    and here is Escudero the DELUSIONAL…telling he is not in favor of pre marital sex and talking of equal protection clause but is seeking nightly refuge now with HE?
    Honestly these two guys NOT pleasant and should not be voted to being senators of the Republic…

  • JasonBieber

    Does it even matter? Or does Comelec and the Palace even care? There were already questions regarding the effectiveness of the machines back in 2010 but it was ignored. Now it is once again showing signs of faultiness. There seems to be something fishy going on here or something not clear since they chose to ignore issues and seem to really want to use these same machines.

  • disqusted0fu

    If these PCOS machines will not get fixed before the elections, we might as well put the LP in the Senate now. The administration is desperate in transforming the Senate into a “Yellow Senate” whatever the heck that means, they will do whatever they can to make that happen.
