- Tito Sotto believed that the elections are “credible”
- However, he urged those who believe otherwise to present their evidence
- He also said that the errors had small percentage
Senate President Vicente “Tito” Sotto III urged those who claim that the elections were not credible to present their evidence.
KAMI learned that Sotto believed in the argument of Comelec Commissioner Rowena Guanzon that the error had small percentage that could totally affect the results.
“In general, kung tutuusin, I think the elections are credible,” Sotto said.
“Ang pinakamadali diyan, kung mayroong nagdududa, iprisenta nila ‘yung dahilan kung bakit sila nagdududa and present the evidence,” he added.
In a report by the GMA News (author Anna Felicia Bajo), Guanzon said that she is open to have an independent third party to investigate the alleged irregularities in the elections.
"I want to assure the public that we are open to inquiries or technical audit... Ako and Commissioner Guia prefer an independent third party to do this..." Guanzon said.
Few hours after the polls last Monday, there had been errors and glitches with the transparency server which delayed the release of the partial and unofficial results for almost 6 hours.
The Comelec cited a “java error” and “packet data” issues as the causes of the delays.
