To help enlighten us on the various concerns raised about Automated Elections for the coming 2010 national and local elections, the Center for People Empowerment in Governance (CenPEG), Movement for Good Governance (MGG), Computing Society of the Philippines, (CSP) and Computer Professionals Union (CPU) would like to invite you to participate in a Public Forum to be held at 9:30a.m. to 12 noon on Wednesday, March 18, 2009 at the Lecture Hall, Department of Computer Science, UP Alumni Engineers Centennial Hall, Velasquez St. (in front of College of Science), UP Diliman, Quezon City.
Entitled “Transparency in the 2010 Automated Elections,” the forum will hear inputs and updates on the Comelec plan for the automated elections and how it hopes to address electoral issues like fraud. As a forum, we would like to devote more time to question-and-answer dialogue between the audience and the speakers.
IT specialists, poll watchers, and political analysts have also been invited to speak and/or react. A multi-sectoral audience representing the academe, people’s organizations, scientists, and other sectors are expected to join the forum.
We look forward to your invaluable presence and participation. For further inquiry or other details, please contact Forum Secretariat at Telefax number 9299526.
