NAMFREL to Recruit 150,000 Watchers for the Upcoming Election

Date Posted: Apr 10, 2010

Prior to the upcoming national elections on May 10, the National Citizen’s Movement for Free Elections (NAMFREL) said that they will recruit about 150,000 volunteers to observe the conduct of the automated polls.


Two volunteers will be deployed in each polling precinct to observe the entire voting process.


National chairman of NAMFREL, Jose Cuisia Jr. said that the watchdog’s provincial chairmen would be the one to recruit observers in their respective areas.


“At present, we have 54 provincial chairmen, who will organize observation and ground roots watchdog groups in their own areas. We need 26 more provincial chairman and we hope by this week we fill that,” said Cuisia,


On the other hand, NAMFREL council chairman Guillermo Luz said that recruitment of watchdogs would help prevent cheating on election day.


“Cheating takes place where there are no volunteers or observers. So if we all tell people where there are no volunteers they would go there to cheat. Our observers have a checklist of activities to do such as guidelines to check that the machines arrive on time and it contains no stored voting data,” Luz said.
