Week 76: December 11 – 17, 2017
On 14 December 2017, BBM received a Notice from the COMELEC wherein it informed the parties that the ballot boxes containing the Secured Digital (SD) cards of the May 9, 2016 National and Local Elections will be transferred from the COMELEC Project Management Office in Palacio del Gobernador, Intramuros to 3rd Floor, Casa Rocha Building, Intramuros from December 27 to 29, 2017.
After 76 weeks (or roughly 536 days), we are still waiting for the PET :
• to issue a Retrieval Order [per undertaking # 7 of 21]
Note that on 29 August 2017, the PET resolved to “Partially Grant [BBM’s] Motion for Retrieval only insofar as all [the] precincts in the provinces of Camarines Sur, Iloilo and Negros Oriental are concerned.” [per item “C” of the Resolution]
• to begin the manual recounting of votes for Camarines Sur, Iloilo & Negros Oriental
[per undertaking # 11 of 21]
