‘MEET-ME ROOM’ | Election watchdog questions Comelec’s queuing server
May 16, 2019 , 07:31 PM

MAY 16, 2019 — Election watchdog Automated Election System Watch or AES Watch questions the presence of a queuing server in Comelec’s canvassing and consolidation system.

When ballots are entered in the vote counting machine, the data passes through the
queuing server called “Meet-Me Room” before it goes to the consolidation system of municipalities.

AES Watch spokesperson Nelson Celis says there are no provisions in RA 9369 or the Automated Election System Act that authorizes queuing servers to operate.

“Ang nangyari po noong 2016 at 2019, mayroong tinatawag na meet-me room na inimplement itong ating Comelec…Ang ating tanong diyan, sino ang nag-otorisa na maglagay ng meet me room. Ito ba ay nasa batas? Sa amin pong alam, wala po ito sa batas at ito ay isang iregularidad.” said Celis.

The group adds that there may be a need to revisit the automated election system act as it still lacks implementing rules and regulations.

“Kung malinaw ang ating IRR, itong sinasabing meet-me room na ‘yan, ito ay dapat nakasaad at alam natin ng buong bayan kung paanong ini-implement itong meet-me room. Pero wala pong implementing rules and regulations so papaano po natin malalaman kung ang kanilang ginagawa ay otorisado ng batas,” said Celis.

Meanwhile, the Comelec maintains that there were no irregularities in the “Meet-Me Room” servers.
