Two municipal election officers from Maguindanao have come forward and confirmed election fraud allegations of former election supervisor Lintang Bedol.
This was revealed by Interior Secretary Jesse Robredo who said the two municipal election officers along with a computer technician have approached the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) and are willing to sign affidavits if asked by the Comelec.
Bedol first came out in an interview with ABS-CBN implicating former President Arroyo in the massive rigging of election results in Maguindanao province.
He said that he was instructed to make sure that three opposition senatorial candidates during the 2007 elections, namely President Benigno Aquino III, who was then representative of Tarlac, and Senators Panfilo Lacson and Alan Peter Cayetano, did not get votes in the province.
Bedol claimed former Comelec chairman Benjamin Abalos, commissioners Rene Sarmiento and Nicodemo Ferrer authenticated fake election materials.
