Bantay Balota lawyer, Ronald Solis, questions the capability of the Commission on Elections (COMELEC) to execute a nationwide automated election. He points out several administrative and technical issues that COMELEC should tackle. Attorney Solis focuses on eight critical areas: source code review, printing of ballots, education and training, testing and sealing of machines, transmission concerns, access to the server, manual audit and a continuity plan. He discusses each point extensively, examines possible scenarios and offers recommendations to address deficiencies.
