Smartmatic demonstrates election technology to Filipino Journalists

Manila, July 18, 2006.? Smartmatic, through its Vicepresident, Robert Cook, recently demonstrated to journalists of the Philippines the superiority of Smartmatic Automated Election System (SAES).

During the forum, Mr. Cook and the rest of the Smartmatic team was able to interact with economy journalists, highlighting SAES?s distinct features. With its capacity to transmit tabulated results at an undaunted speed without sacrificing efficiency and accuracy, as well as its  ease of use, auditability and veracity, SAES easily impressed the members of the press.

To stress out the importance of automating the electoral process in the country, Cook also spoke about his experience in other developing countries like Venezuela, where even those who had low literacy level did not have a hard time casting their votes. According to him, automating the electoral process will pave the way for totally transparent elections.

While Philippine Legislators are still in the process of pushing the automation bill, Smartmatic extended their advocacy of conducting clean and honest elections through automating the system.
