How did the first computerized election in the country go?

Was there cheating? How rampant was it this time?

How was media coverage?

These are some of the questions that the National Union of Journalists of the Philippines wants answered. Thus we invite you to a roundtable discussion on the ARMM elections on August 14, Thursday, 10 a.m. at Annabel’s Restaurant, Tomas Morato, Quezon City.

Election watchdogs Citizens CARE (Citizens’ Coalition for ARMM Electoral Reforms, Inc.), represented by its chairperson, Salic Ibrahim, and lawyers from LENTE (Legal Network for Truthful Elections) will lead the discussion. We also invite journalists who covered the elections to share their experiences.

Citizens CARE covered the elections with more than 1,500 barangay election monitoring officers all over ARMM and 30 partner organizations, including LENTE, the Parish Pastoral Council for Responsible Voting (PPCRV), the National Movement for Free Elections (Namfrel), Consortium of Bangsamoro Civil Society, Bangsamoro Lawyers Network, Bangsamoro Women Solidarity Forum, and Federation of United Mindanawan Bangsamoro Women Multi-Purpose Cooperative.

The roundtable discussion is part of NUJP’s program to encourage accurate and in-depth reporting on issues that affect the country.
