PCOS testing, sealing in Negros Occidental reset

BACOLOD CITY, April 19 (PNA) — The Commission on Elections (Comelec) in Negros Occidental has received an order to reset the final testing and sealing of Precinct Count Optical Scan (PCOS) machines on May 10 instead of May 6.

Provincial Election Supervisor Atty. Wil Arceno said the directive came from their regional director Atty. Renato Magbutay in response to the request of Police Regional Office and 3rd Infantry Division of the Philippine Army.

Arceno said the changes in the schedule in the local level will give the government law enforcers shorter time to secure the election paraphernalia the moment it is shipped out to the local treasurer’s office.

A total of 2,043 PCOS machines from Metro Manila have arrived in Bacolod City as of Tuesday. The official ballots, on the other hand, are expected to arrive by Sunday.

The PCOS machines and other election paraphernalia are stored in undisclosed warehouses in the metro for safekeeping. (PNA)
