KK! Topic for July 9th Talk Show: "Will the 2008 ARMM Election Lay the Groundwork for Sustainable Governance in Muslim Mindanao and the Philippines?" on DZRH-AM radio, Wednesday, 7:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. (Manila time)

 

The election for the Regional Governor and Vice Governor and the Members of the Regional Legislative Assembly of the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM) is held every three years on the Second Monday of August, as required by law. It will be held again on August 11, 2008, with a potential major impact on the country.

The Commission on Elections (COMELEC) has announced that two technologies will be implemented in the automated ARMM elections: the Direct Recording Electronic (DRE) System and the Optical Mark Reader (OMR) System. This election, COMELEC says, will lay the groundwork for the full automation of the 2010 National and Local Elections. The Commission expects it to minimize human intervention and discretion in the polls, thus eliminating errors and fraud.


Could it also lay the groundwork for "sustainable governance," the type of governance that pays attention to the development of each individual Filipino and brings about equitable social progress, protection and conservation of the environment, and economic development for the entire country?


Hear the answer and learn more about the forthcoming ARMM election and its potential impact nationwide as leaders of ARMM, COMELEC, and the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Industry discuss this topic in Kalikasan, Kaunlaran! (KK!), on DZRH-AM radio, on July 9, 2008, Wednesday, 7:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. (Manila time).
