Senate Minority Leader Alan Peter Cayetano on Tuesday cautioned the Commission in Elections (Comelec) against pushing through with a plan to use new technology for the 2013 elections, with an alleged cheating operator leading the poll body.
Cayetano said having election lawyer Sixto Brillantes as Comelec chairman raises doubts about the intentions behind changing the technology used during the first nationwide automated elections in 2010.
“Are we confident na ‘pag nag-introduce siya ng new technology, walang dayaan na mangyayari?” he told reporters.
The senator had accused Brillantes of helping certain politicians cheat during elections. Brillantes has denied Cayetano’s allegation.
