    Ano ang nangyari noong February 9, 2010?

    Sinabi ni Comelec Chairman Sixto Brillantes: THERE WAS NO SOURCE CODE FOR THE PRECINCT COUNT OPTICAL SCAN (PCOS) MACHINES IN THE 2010 ELECTIONS AND THERE WON'T BE ONE IN THE POLLS NEXT MONTH...

    If this is the case, what really happened on Feb. 9, 2010, before the 2010 elections, when the whole of COMELEC, Systest Lab of America, Smartmatic-TIM and the Central Bank of the Philippines held an elaborate ceremony to deposit the source code to the Central Bank for safekeeping? Where they conniving with each other to hide the truth from the people of the Philippines?


    BSP receives source code for safekeeping
    KIMBERLY JANE TAN, GMANews.TV
    February 9, 2010 2:22pm


    As the campaign period for the May 10 polls kicked off on Tuesday, the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) received the software master copy that would be used in the first automated elections.

    In a short ceremony, the Commission on Elections (Comelec) turned over the software, known as the source code, to the BSP, which it will hold for safekeeping.

    Republic Act 9339 requires the Comelec to keep the master copy of the source code in escrow with the BSP.

    Securing source codes will guard against holes or trap doors that can be used to corrupt data and/or cheat during the elections.

    The source code is composed of human readable instructions that programmers will write and rewrite as needed. It is then converted – or “compiled" – into executable code, the system used by poll machines to count votes properly.

    The source code was certified by international software testing company SysTest Labs in their facility in Colorado, USA for P75 million.

    The American company brought the code to the country on February 1 and formally turned it over to the Comelec early Tuesday.

    Encoded in two compact discs, the source code was placed in a small black safety box with the hash codes, locked, and sealed with four Comelec stickers.

    The BSP then placed the small safety box in a fire and waterproof vault inside a caged room at the BSP facility in Manila.

    The Comelec was entrusted with the keys to the padlocks of the cage, the key to the safety box, and the combination of the vault.

    The source code will be kept in escrow for a little over a year, said Comelec Chairman Jose Melo during the escrow agreement signing held at the Central Bank's facility in Roxas Boulevard, Manila.

    The source code “cannot be in a safer place [and] in safer hands except in the Central Bank," he said.

    While the procedure might look simplistic, “[keeping it in the BSP] is a very important segment in the whole exercise of our automated elections," Melo said.

    Comelec spokesman James Jimenez said the agency needs the master copy of the source code for any future problems with the automated system.

    "The idea here is that we are able to keep the source code in this secure location so that at any point in the future [when] it is necessary to refer to a standard for the source code, then this standard is it," he said.

    The poll body had earlier planned to turn over the source code to the BSP last Friday, but the Central Bank first had to pass a resolution allowing it.

    By securing the automation code, the Philippines’ central bank fulfills its part for the country’s very first nationwide automated elections, BSP officer-in-charge Nestor Espenilla Jr. said.

    "With this simple act, we in the Bangko Sentral, commit to do our share in protecting the integrity of the upcoming automated election system, a historic first for our country," he said. - LBG, RJAB Jr./GMANews.TV

    Tama naman si Brillantes hindi na pwede i-review yang Source Code, Baket? Kase mabubuking ang Team Penoy na Hocus PCOS ang mangyayari sa darating na eleksyon kailangan pa naman manalo ng mga manok nya lalong lalo na si Bam!

    Brillantes on source code review: ‘It’s too late, too close to May polls’

    hindi ba pwede i subpoena ang COMELEC para i produce ang Source Code? at kung walang ilitaw pwede kayang ideklarang un-constitutional yung 2010 Election kasi nasa Batas na dapat may Source Code.

    Wala sa pag-aari ng Comelec ang source code. Wala rin sa Smartmatic. Nasa Dominion of Canada. Sila ang totoong nagmamay-ari ng PCOS technology. Nagsinungaling ang Smartmatic sa Philippine government when we first entered into contract with them for the 2010 elections - sabi nila sila ang may-ari ng technology. Pero nabuking silang in 2012, last year, when Dominion ceased its association with Smartmatic, at nagdemandahan ang dalawa. Noon pa lang natin nalaman na ang Smartmatic ay isang ordinaryong reseller.

    ungas ang *****

    hindi kakayanin ma comprehend ng ***** ang tungkol sa source code. even brilliantes hindi nya kayang intindihin kung ano ang kayang gawin ng source code. i heard him talk over the radio, parang hindi nya talaga alam kung ano ba talaga ang source code. tsk tsk..

    in my opinion:

    1. walang source code na naka deposit sa central bank, baka yung copy ng software lang, hindi yun source code
    2. takot silang makita kung anong klaseng programming ang ginawa, baka sobrang simple, or may anomalya
    3. walang security features masyado, makikita na pwedeng mag send galing sa ibang CF card, pag transmit pwede tanggapin ng server

    madaming possibilities. kaya kelangan talaga ipabasa sa pinoy i.t. community ang source code na yan.

    oh well, ***** ang presidente. yun lang.

    may dayaan DAW nung 2010.

    maanomalya DAW ang PCOS machines



    hmm........

    why did the random MANUAL AUDIT of votes show NO discrepancies?

    where are the election protests?

    where are the impeachment or graft cases against the current and former COMELEC officials?

    where are the criminal charges against the manufacturers of the PCOS machines?




    puro satsat.

    walang ebidensya.




    evidently, the critics are only....

    so, magkano ang bid ngayon ng Smartmatic para maipanalo yung gusto nilang ipanalo?

    do not let the China-aligned Venezuelans determine this country's fate.

    The Manual Parallel Count was never finished by PPCRV. Does that answer your question?

    What fraud, ampalayas?!


    Audit shows national polls 99.6% accurate

    Results of the May 10 automated elections for national positions were 99.6% accurate, according to a random manual audit conducted by various election stakeholders.

    In a press conference held on Thursday at the Commission on Elections (Comelec), Florante Varona of the National Statistics Office, which helped conduct the random manual audit, said the variance of 0.4% is equivalent to only 2,174 votes out of 540,942 votes included in the random manual audit. "This is quite small," he said.

    It said a breakdown of the accuracy rates per region ranged from 99.87% to 99.17%.

    Henrietta de Villa, chairwoman of the Parish Pastoral Council for Responsible Voting (PPCRV), said the random manual audit checked the votes in a total of 1,145 clustered precincts to see if they matched the results of the automated elections. She said the audit started right after the May 10 elections and were conducted by Boards of Election Inspectors (BEI) and personnel from the Commission on Elections (Comelec).

    She said that in most cases of variances, the error was usually due to wrong computation or wrong encoding of the BEIs.

    Report of UP's CENPEG:
    http://www.cenpeg.org/2012/youth-spe...the%20RMA.html

    Once more on the RMA

    Results of the Random Manual Audit (RMA) for the May 10 automated election have been released three months after it was begun. Media reports said the last mechanism of verifying the elections revealed that the last May 10 election was 99.6%, drawing praises from the Commission on Elections (Comelec). Before any final word is made on the RMA, it is important to make a run-through of its progress for the past three months.

    Under RA 9369, an RMA is required to test if poll machines have counted the election results accurately. The RMA’s coverage was approved by Comelec: Five clustered precincts per legislative district, or a total of 1,145 precincts from 229 districts. These districts were to be chosen randomly through a “tambiolo” to be facilitated by Comelec's partner in the automated elections, the Parish Pastoral Council for Responsible Voting (PPCRV).

    RMA is very important as people cannot verify the votes with the 76,000 precinct counter optical scan (PCOS) machines that changed the face of the elections. And the only way to assess the performance of the machines is by comparing it with the manual votes that could be read in the ballots.

    RMA started on May 10 and the results should have come up a few days or a week after thereafter. According to Section 231 of BP 881:

    “…the board of canvassers must complete their canvass within 36 hours in municipalities, 48 hours in cities and 72 hours in provinces.”

    By May 14, all the poll personnel assigned to voting districts in Metro Manila that told this research volunteer that they already conducted RMA, adding they encountered no major problems. Having observed the RMA conducted in Caloocan, I can say that the manual counting could be done in less than six hours. In all, all the RMAs would have been finished in less than two weeks.

    Unfortunately, this was not what happened. A few days after the elections PPCRV announced that it may take a month to finish the elections, mainly because of delays in sending the reports from different districts especially those far from Manila. It took three months before the results of RMA were revealed. And Comelec claims it was already done earlier but was delayed because of the discrepancies. Was this because of the unclear provisions on the RMA? And if this was the case, the report about these discrepancies should be revealed to the public as well and not just the results of RMA.

    The long delay in the RMA has stirred speculations and uncertainties from the general public.

    Meantime, the results of RMA show that the elections had a .4% margin of error. However, the error rate set by Comelec with Smartmatic was only at .005% and for IT experts an error rate of .07% is already unacceptable. So the question now is, how can Comelec be glad of the results when it didn't even pass the standards that they set? The 99.6% accuracy rate of the elections may seem impressive but it still isn't good enough based on the standards of Comelec and IT experts. There have also been unverified reports of two digit discrepancies in some areas that Comelec and PPCRV has to clear out.

    The problem with RMA is that the process and the people are not ready to conduct it. There have been reports that BEIs who conducted RMA are not well aware of its process like the one recorded in Davao. A total of 350 barangays were excluded from the selection of RMA precincts because they were the least accessible. However, given that the RMA took almost three months to complete, then these barangays should have already been included given anyhow. Moreover, the PCOS machines in Hong Kong and Singapore were excluded from the RMA.

    As of now, CenPEG’s IT experts are still analyzing the reports from the PPCRV in the spirit of credibility and accuracy. EU-CenPEG Project 3030
