Probe into alleged pre-shaded ballots urged

SAN JOSE City --  Re-electionist Senator  JV Ejercito yesterday urged the Commission on Elections to look into the alleged existence of pre-shaded ballots for the May 13 polls.

“Dapat paimbestigahan iyan agad ng Comelec para mawala ang mga agam-agam na mayroon ganyang pre-shaded ballots,” said Ejercito, who was met here at the city hall yesterday morning by his big bike buddy re-electionist City Mayor Mario “Kokoy” Salvador.

Ejercito also expressed his concern over claims circulating on social media about the supposed pre-shaded ballots.

“Siyempre ako naman bilang kandidato, nag-aalala din, kayod ako ng kayod araw-araw, ihi at tulog lang ang pahinga ko, eto nga iba na nga ang kulay ko, kulay kahoy, tapos nanakawan tayo ng boto, nakaka-sama ng loob,” Ejercito said.

He said the poll body must act accordingly to ensure the conduct of a fair elections this May.

Ejercito said  every vote is sacred.

Ejercito, accompanied by Salvador and other local officials, conducted a motorcade rally around the city. He then proceeded to the Science City of Muñoz and Guimba town before going to Cabanatuan City to cap his visit to the province yesterday morning.
