Manila, Philippines – Paiimbestigahan nina Bayan Muna party-list Representatives Carlos Isagani Zarate, Ferdinand Gaite at Eufemia Cullamat ang umano’y napaulat na hacking sa datos ng Commission on Elections (Comelec).

Sa inihaing House Resolution 2434, hinikayat ng mga mambabatas ang House committee on suffrage and electoral reforms to investigate, in aid of legislation, the alleged breach of the system of the poll body.

“The new reported incident of data breach of Comelec servers, if proven to be true, is a serious matter, especially with the upcoming May 2022 elections. This cannot just be dismissed outright by placing the onus of proving that it actually happened, or, did not happen at all, to the one reporting it,” saad sa bahagi ng resolusyon.

“The credibility of the coming elections will be put into question if this issue is not swiftly, independently and efficiently probed and addressed.”

Ani Zarate, ito ay ‘déjà vu’ ng ‘2016 Comeleaks hacking.’

“Is this a repeat of that incident or this designed to destroy the credibility of Comelec for a no election scenario?” tanong ng mambabatas.

“Just like the Omicron COVID-19 variant, this is no simple matter to be dismissed easily. There are many questions that need to be answered as well as the technical aspect of the supposed hacking and the extent of the data that the hackers were able to compromise,” dagdag pa nito.
