The rigging of the 2010 elections may have commenced with the appointment of two new members of the Commission on Elections (Comelec).
Without offense to the two new commissioners, Senate minority leader Nene Pimentel revealed that the two new appointees were not among those in the short list prepared by the Malacanang search committee which was also reviewed by civil society groups.
Their names were inserted. Therefore, a clear case of dagdag (for them) and bawas (for the others)! This unfair practice is definite to go all the way to 2010.
