Statement on the “arrival” of the PCOS Source Code


The civil society groups that filed the UN communications against the use of the PCOS slammed the alleged “arrival” of the source code days before the May 13 polls.

“It’s just too late,” said Professor Harry L. Roque, Jr., counsel for the group.

Roque added, “The Law requires examination of the source code not just presentation. The belated arrival of the source code is useless in safeguarding the sanctity of the ballot. The examination of the source code is a process that will take at least six months.”

The failure of the COMELEC to have the source code examined for both the 2010 and 2013 elections will surely bolster the claim of the petitioners before the UN Human Rights Committee to have a declaration that their rights under the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR) have been violated by the COMELEC and Smartmatic.
