Probe on alleged 2016 election fraud set in May
The Senate Blue Ribbon Committee will investigate allegations of electoral fraud that occurred during the early hours of the 2016 national elections after next month’s barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan (SK) elections.
Sen. Vicente Sotto III told the media that they moved the hearing next month to reduce the workload of the Commision on Elections (Comelec).
Sotto also refuted Vice President Leni Robredo’s claim that all candidates will be affected by the electoral protest.
He said only six candidates whose name appeared in the early transmission of votes were affected by the alleged fraud.
Sotto said the Senate will subpoena the security logs of Smartmatic to identify the names of the candidates that were included in the early transmission.
