Share this information:

THE Commission on Elections (Comelec) today has decided to stop the operations of its Transparency Media Server (TMS).

The decommissioning of the TMS, located at the first floor of the Quadricentennial Pavilion of the University of Santo Tomas (UST) in Espana, Manila, happened at exactly 3 pm in the presence of accredited media organizations and accredited citizen’s arm who covered the May 9 polls.

The closing of the TMS was led by Comelec Commissioner Marlon Casquejo, together with Comelec Education and Information Department (EID) Director James Jimenez.

This means accredited media networks will not be able to extract data from the TMS anymore.

After the decommissioning, data collected from the election remained at 98.35 percent, which was reflected on the video wall of the Parish Pastoral Council for Responsible Voting (PPCRV), the citizens’ arm of the Comelec.

On the other hand, the resumption of the session of Congress is now awaited for the counting of votes for president and vice president, while the Comelec, which stands as the National Board of Canvassers, will continue to count the votes for Senators and Partylist groups.
