BBM CAMP: RMA’s 99.93% ACCURACY RATE REFLECTS THE WILL OF THE PEOPLE

THE camp of incoming President Ferdinand ‘Bongbong’ Marcos on Monday said the 99.93 percent vote accuracy rate showed by the random manual audit (RMA) of votes indicated that the people have indeed spoken and their will should be respected.

Incoming Executive Secretary Atty. Vic Rodriguez, Marcos’ chief of staff and spokesman, said the random manual audit of votes showed that the digitally transmitted election results echoed what voters indicated on the ballots.

“We welcome the results of the random manual audit of votes that the Commission on Elections (Comelec) reported out. We believe that the high accuracy rate proves that the recent elections were not marred by fraud as some sectors have been claiming. The RMA results should erase any doubt regarding the election results. The people have spoken and they have chosen presumptive President-elect Ferdinand ‘Bongbong’ Marcos to be the country’s 17th president,” he said.

The random manual audit of votes in the 2022 elections showed a 99.93% overall accuracy as of May 21, 2022, after 128 of the 757 randomly selected clustered polling precincts have been checked.

Comelec Commissioner George Garcia added that a 99.97% accuracy rate was reported for the presidential elections, 99.96% for the vice-presidential race, and 99.97% for senatorial and party-list polls.

The random manual audit was led by the Comelec, poll watchdogs like LENTE, an association of certified public accountants, and the Philippine Statistics Authority.

A random manual audit is conducted to check the performance of vote counting machines and to examine the ballots to validate accuracy.

Rodriguez called on sectors trying to sow doubts about the results of the elections to stop fanning divisiveness and animosity and instead allow the incoming administration to work productively.

“I appeal to those who keep on pursuing this divisiveness, the people have spoken. The Filipino people have spoken and an overwhelming majority has voted President-elect Bongbong Marcos and Vice President-elect Inday Sara Duterte into office as President and Vice President. Learn to respect the will of the Filipino people,” he said.
