so brillantes promises to resign, yet again ( the fourth time by sunstar‘s account), this time over last night’s partial proclamation of the top six winning senators.
There is no way the six candidates who were proclaimed as senators on Thursday night will be removed from the top 12 once the full results are in, Commission on Elections (Comelec) Chairman Sixto Brillantes said Friday.
“I will fight for it. I will resign if any of the six (winners) will be bumped off the (top) 12,” he told reporters, adding the six candidates have already netted enough votes to ensure election.
no doubt that those six are in the “magic” 12. hindi naman iyon ang problema. ang problema is the rush to formally proclaim them when the numbers are not all in. you wonder why nga ba brilliantes is so nagmamadali to proclaim anyone when the count has stalled, slowed down, with no clear and credible explanations. it’s not as if these piecemeal proclamations render the automated system more credible. the cloud of doubt only grows grayer and heavier. it would seem that brilliantes is as much the problem as the pcos and cf cards.
