MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – A day after wet ballots were discovered during the recount in connection with Bongbong Marcos’ electoral protest against Vice President Leni Robredo, Senator Risa Hontiveros has put forward a no nonsense proposal.

Hontiveros’ bill will authorize the Commission on Elections to produce waterproof ballots starting with the 2019 elections.

”This will prevent future incidents of tampering and other ballot irregularities,” Hontiveros told The Adobo Chronicles.
