“The law already requires automation… (unless) they remove the provision saying that automation is mandatory,” said Comelec chairman Sixto Brillantes, referring to Republic Act No. 9369, which mandates that an automated election system (AES) must be used in subsequent electoral exercises of the country.
On Wednesday, members of the House minority said the Comelec should consider going back to manual elections considering the glitches suffered by the AES during the mock polls over the weekend.
