Crooked COMELEC-governed elections are Philippine democracy's broken backbone


The Philippines is supposedly a "democracy". This is an assertion continuously made with pride by the Yellowtards -- rabid supporters of the Aquino-Cojuangco feudal clan who claim ownership of the 1986 "people power revolution" that supposedly "restored" democracy after two decades of supposedly authoritarian rule.

It is therefore ironic that no less than the Yellowtards themselves are behind the continued immunity enjoyed by officials of the Philippines' Commision on Elections (COMELEC) from scrutiny following decades of overseeing fraudulent elections. This coddling of election fraudsters and their equally crooked technology partners is especially acute today in light of the single foothold to power the Yellowtards are desperately propping up.

The current "vice president" Leni Robredo is widely seen to be a beneficiary of the COMELEC Mafia. She was catapulted to power by the COMELEC under the watch of its then chairman Andy Bautista who has since fled overseas presumably to escape the law. Robredo had also enjoyed an arbitrary waive on a rule prohibiting politicians taking office if they fail to submit a Statement of Contributions and Expenditures (SOCE) before an irrevocable deadline imposed by the COMELEC. The Liberal Party under which she ran for office in 2016 had failed to comply to that rule but thanks to "friendly" COMELEC officials at the time, she is now the regarded by her friends as the Philippines' "vice president".

Indeed, Philippine democracy is broken. It is broken at its very spine thanks to spineless COMELEC officials and their crooked sponsors and defenders.
