The Source Code

The COMELECĀ  Members are not that engots to allow the source code for the automated election machines to be published on the web as other people want them to do.

Publishing this source code will be tantamount to doing away with the controls, screens, filters, and regulatory procedures by which the country is banking on for a clean election.

If people with dubious motives would learn of this source code, they could simply manufacture their own data for the results of the elections.

If confidence on the technical expertise of the COMELEC Members is the issue, then let the COMELEC Members select technical people who would act as their surrogates on automated election equipment.

Don’t you worry, Bayan, those who intend to cheat in the next elections would not even know how to cheat the equipment, as they themselves would not know which equipment to use for cheating.
