MANILA, Philippines — The Parish Pastoral Council for Responsible Voting (PPCRV) on Wednesday said they have requested data from the central server of the Commission on Elections (Comelec).

PPCRV Chairperson Myla Villanueva said that the data will help them check if the data will match with results from the transparency server.


“Gusto naming makita ang central server data, ima-match namin sa transparency server data. We want to make sure that it’s the same,” Villanueva told reporters at the PPCRV Command Center in Manila.

“We have written [to the Comelec en banc]. We have officially requested for that,” she added.


The spokesperson added that they have also requested for transparency server’s logs at the time before the seven-hour election results transmission glitch on Monday night.

Villanueva said that they will ask for a “proper forum” if they observe inconsistencies from the logs despite Comelec’s transparency in fixing the glitch.

Asked if the PPCRV cannot do anything if the logs are not provided, Villanueva said she will insist for the copies of the logs once they receive more results from the Comelec.

“I will insist on the logs [but] it is right to wait. Ayaw nating guluhin ang transparency server kasi tinatanggap pa ang data,” Villanueva said.

“But I don’t see any reason why we won’t get it,” she added. (Editor: Julie Espinosa)
