ILIGAN —The Legal Network for Truthful Elections (LENTE Philippines) conducted a consultation today (November 19, 2019) on the drafting of the Bangsamoro Electoral Code at the Plaza Alemania Hotel in Iligan City. 17 groups were represented in the FGD including CSOs, LENTE Chapters, and the COMELEC.
Atty. Marisse Aldeza, lawyer volunteer for LENTE, facilitated the discussions and assisted by Ms. Brizza Rosales. Participants shared the negative observations such as rampant vote buying, violation of election day procedures, and the manipulation of the supervisors. Participants hoped that the next BARMM elections would include a massive education and information campaign to empower people and become informed voters.
