GMA News Online – Imee wants hybrid election systems presented at Senate hearing

By Dona Magsino | GMA News Online

Senator Imee Marcos is looking to test available hybrid election systems as she continued her push for a part-manual, part-automated elections in 2022.

“‘Yung target date natin I hope in the next session at the latest, kailangan patakbuhin na ‘yan eh kasi hindi naman ganoon kalayo ‘yung 2022, kailangan nakapag-practice na,” said Marcos, the chair of the Senate Committee on Electoral Reforms.

“The goal really is that in 2022 we have a new hybrid automated system,” Marcos said.

Marcos said the committee wanted to level the playing field for more technology and services providers.

“Titingnan natin kung alin ‘yung mga bahagi na kailangan iisa ‘yung provider at alin naman yung mga pwede anng i-spin out na sa iba para hindi naman iisa ang nagmamaniobra ng mga eleksyon,” Marcos said.
