Election season in the Philippines has just begun, and nearly one hundred candidates have registered to run in next year's presidential derby.
Eliminate the no-hopers and cranks and it is shaping up to be a five-cornered race,
with a clutch of serious contenders as outside bets.
The automation of the 2010 National Elections signals the beginning of a massive transformational phase in the electoral system of the Philippines. We are finally moving away from the known flaws and weaknesses of the old ways of doing things and towards an automated election system that promises a speedy and accurate count, a highly efficient reporting mechanism that democratizes the count and canvass of election results, and most importantly, the extinction of dagdag-bawas.
Mabuhay and bagong botanteng Pilipino!
Mabuhay ang Pilipinas.
