The Commission on Election (Comelec) considers the National and Local Election 2019 as a success.
Comelec Commissioner Marlon Casquejo said on the press briefing on Tuesday, “despite those glitches that we had, since this is less than 1 percent of the entire 85,000 plus units, we can say that the election is successful. In fact, we are already in the 96 percent transmission.”
According to Casquejo, the election result is valid and credible. He said that the transmission in the recent election is faster compared to the previous polls. Aside from that, all the automated election system components passed through the local source code review.
