LET THE PEOPLE’S VOICE PREVAIL!
PROTECT THE PEOPLE’S WILL!
The people’s vote is sacred. The free results of the elections is the collective voice of the people. As such it is every citizen’s duty to protect it and let it prevail.
We, members of the Tanggulang Demokrasya, believe that a clean, honest and credible elections is the cornerstone of a democratic society.
We view with grave concern the blatant attempt by those mandated to conduct the 2016 elections to tamper with the computerized system that may affect the true results of the elections.
We denounce the widely publicized unauthorized uploading of a computer script (instructions) to the transparency server in the course of the quick count, as publicly admitted by both the Comelec and Smartmatic.
Accordingly, we call for the immediate conduct of a digital forensic examination of the system (software) and platform (hardware) of the automated election network by the anti-cyber crime group of the Philippine National Police, with representatives of independent IT groups as observers.
We demand that Comelec address this call right now in the interest of transparency and truth of the 2016 elections.
Let the true voice of the people prevail! Comelec must protect, not thwart, the people’s will.
