election-2013

election-2013The Philippines is a democratic country and one way of practicing its democracy is through participating in the electoral process. The Philippines has a very colorful election. Political parties are everywhere. There is also political dynasty, but of course it is still the Filipinos who have the final say. Election is supposedly a positive activity for everybody can practice their rights to suffrage. However, there are some problems associated with the electoral process. The Philippine government does its best to ensure that there will be a peaceful and unbiased election. However, there are some things that are beyond the government’s control.

The number one problem during election is safety. During the campaign period and actual election period, safety and security troops are scattered in different areas of the country. They make sure that the country will be safe and sound during the entire electoral period.   The problem is that some politicians have private armies and these armies can sabotage the election process just to make their candidate win. The worst thing is that sometimes some people are hurt or even killed by these private armies.

Killing of political opponent is also one major issue faced by the government. Once the campaign period is on, the government implements a total gun ban just to make sure that there will be a safe election. The government also takes some time to tabulate and interpret the result of the election. In other countries, it will just take a few hours to tabulate the votes and after couple of hours the result of the election will be reported to the people. In the Philippines, it will take three to five days before you will know the final result of the election. Last election, the Philippines used automated machine to make the election process simpler and efficient. The machine did really help, but it will take a lot of experience to totally master the processes involved in automated election.
