Another complaint was done by somebody who was said to have lost in the election. Well, I just wonder why the winners don't even look at the numbers that they got if they were also cheated. Why could they not also investigate?

I think that is pretty normal in the Philippines that defeated candidates always claim that they are cheated in the elections. For now since the counting was digitized it is hard to find evidence that there is fraud in counting since it is automated already. I think they are trying old tactics with the old ones hoping they could file a formal complaints. I think to be able to find fraud in here, you must be able to find proof in the program itself that there was tampering in the counting.

let's try looking at this on a positive note. Yes they might be the one who cheated, yes they may have spent a lot already, but, I think one of the reasons they are not investigating is because they don't want to appear arrogant. Think of it this way, There's a cake,5 people(A,B,C,D,E) wanted the whole cake, they all got a piece but they weren't cut equally lets say it was cut like this: ___________________ | | | | This is the whole cake | | |___________________| ___________________ | | B | C | | A |____|____| This is the divided cake | | D | E | |_________|____|____| You can see that A had half of the cake, while the rest had 1/4. Imagine A saying that he got such a small amount of cake, it barely satisfies he's cake craving. if you were one of B,C,D or E, wouldn't you just hate A? or even if you're not one of them, you're just a spectator, wouldn't you still hate A?

Winners would not rather think about being cheated. They are more concerned at their victory. Only losers have the time to investigate at the issue of being cheated. ..

Hello mimiang, that issue will die out soon. of course, they will take advantage of this situation because of what? they think things will turn around? i don't think so. blame that on the comelec for buying totally expensive stuff where they can use cheaper designs like the Lotto machine but different feature.

why? may be because they are the one who cheat.. A greater benefit to your part should be visible to your eyes to have an evidence of a efficient cheating mechanism,in this case numbers of vote.. Well not all who win do cheat,they win because they deserve it.. Those who lost complaint because,in my opinion 1.They are really been cheated..that is their right.. 2.They believe that the system is new and the confident on its efficiency is questionable. 3.To make a twist of a story and have a longer time for the plan black propaganda..we don't know.. 4.To have a public exposure..they may run again..and it is an opportunity for them to be known. 5.To have a public sympathy..Which is i see is bad..public trust to it official is compromise..Let support the agenda of the leader who win..Give them our trust..We are all Filipino with the aid of God we can make it..
