Forensics for 2013 polls; DOH woes


LIFE’S INSPIRATIONS:” …A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger…”

(Proverbs 15:1, the Holy Bible).


FORENSIC EXAMS URGED FOR MAY 2013 POLLS: To stop all speculations on whether or not there was computer cheating in the recently-concluded 2013 elections, a forensic examination must be made of all the computer gadgets used in the political exercise, like the compact flash cards, the precinct count optical scan (PCOS) machines, servers, and any other instrument that had something to do with the automated voting, counting and canvassing last May 13.

Ateneo de Manila University Associate Professor Felix Muga made this challenge last Monday, June 03, 2013, when he guested at the weekly media forum at Rembrandt Hotel hosted by  the “Kapisanan ng mga Komentarista at mga Mamamahayag sa Pilipinas, Inc.”. The forum’s topic was “60-30-10: Is it statistically possible?”

Muga clarified that the existence of the 60-30-10 pattern alone involving the senatorial candidates in the last elections did not automatically indicate any cheating in favor of Team PNoy’s candidates, although the pattern showed a consistent 60% advantage in their favor almost everywhere in the 105 provinces and cities and in the 15 regions of the Philippines, including the votes from overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) abroad.


“TEAM PNOY HUGELY POPULAR”: When asked if the pattern was statistically possible, Muga said it was possible, and could be attributed to the huge popularity of President Aquino who took time out to campaign and endorse his candidates. “Lumalabas malakas talaga ang Team PNoy” (It would seem Team PNoy was hugely popular)”, Muga said.

It also showed, Muga  explained, that the candidates of the United Nationalist Alliance (UNA) did not enjoy the same strength. Out of the 59,667 precincts that have been counted at one point in the elections, it would appear that in about 58,400 precints, Team PNoy was heavily favored, Muga pointed out.

When asked if the 60-30-10 pattern in the senatorial votes could be validated, he said the best way to do this is to subject to a forensic examination all the computer gadgets used in the election, counting and canvassing. Forensic examination will mean opening up the flash cards, the PCOS machines and the servers to have their content studied.


MISGUIDED PRIORITY AT DOH: In the same forum, Ang Nars Party List Rep. Lea Samaco Paquiz  lambasted the on-going construction of government hospitals and other medical facilities under the Aquino government, at a cost of P17 billion, while the need for more doctors, nurses and other medical professionals or workers around the country is not being addressed.

“Right now, the nurse to patient ratio, under guidelines from the Department of Health, is, one nurse is to 12 patients,” Paquiz said, so that there is a need to employ more nurses in government hospitals. The sad reality, however, is that there is a grave lack of nurses almost everywhere, the incoming lawmaker added.              “The DOH is wrong and is misguided in its priority of building more hospitals. It should endeavor to deploy more doctors and more nurses instead,” she added.                                                             -ooo-
