May kababalaghan! Ballot boxes arrive in Pasig with paper seals ripped


Is there an attempt to tamper with the ballots in Pasig City ahead of the May 13 elections.

Former Valenzuela City councilor Shalani Soledad has revealed the questionable state that some ballot boxes arrived in Pasig City ahead of the polls.

Soledad, the wife of Pasig congressional candidate Roman Romulo, raised her concern about a number of ballot boxes in a tweet addressed to Commission on Elections spokesperson Director James Jimenez.

The former councilor asked if it was normal for the ballot boxes, which arrived in Pasig Friday, to have their paper seals broken or ripped.

The print on the paper seals read: “Do not open before the voting hours of May 13 NLE (national and local elections).”

In response to Soledad’s tweet, Jimenez said the Comelec will inquire into the matter.

Romulo is running against incumbent Congressman Richard Eusebio, whose family has controlled Pasig City over the last 20 years.
