2010 Automated polls in GREAT Peril

The Commission on Elections may have to abandon its plan to fully automate the 2010 elections because of Congress’ delay in passing the P11.3-billion automation budget has compromised election preparations, according to Comelec Chair Jose Melo.

“We are really pressed for time. We are toying with the idea that it won’t be full capacity. Maybe we will automate 50 percent, not nationwide,” he said.

What is wrong really with the automated polls this coming national and local elections this coming year of 2010? Are the congressmen afraid that there will be no fraud in their districts?

The Congress should act upon this calling of not only the COMELEC but of the Filipino people as well. They only have 3 days do so or the election in our country will be as traditional as ever "manually" full of frauds.
