pero bago ang snap elections na yan, kailangang mapalitan muna ang present commissioners at officers ng comelec ng mga taong hindi identified kay arroyo o sa mga politiko o personahe ng oposisyon.
i agree. clean up the COMELEC and go after all the COMELEC officials (high and low) involved in the GLORIAGATE dagdag bawas operations. I disagree with you though about banning people associated with the admin or opposition from being COMELEC commissioners. that's an extreme view. because most people are either pro- or anti-arroyo. (In the US, that is like saying, yeah palitan natin ang mga election officials sa isang county, pero bawal ang mga republicans o democrats na humawak sa position na ito. pwede lang yung mga taga-green party o communist party. LOL. just impractical.)
example, i would be for jovito salonga as commissioner, kahit na he supported arroyo. i would be for joker arroyo as Commissioner, kahit na he still leans pro-arroyo (his opportunity for redemption). i would be for harriet demetriou as commissioner kahit na associated siya kay FPJ. heck, i would even be for winnie monsod as commissioner. because although they may support one or the other side, i believe they are fair, not corrupt and not power hungry.
but we have to remove the corrupting influence of arroyo first, because she and her appointed COMELEC officials rigged the 2004 presidential elections. for as long as GMA is in power, no real reforms will take place at magiging toothless at powerless lang ang office ng COMELEC under her dictatorial rule, katulad ng ginawa niya sa senado via EO 464. Magaling talaga si marcos... este GMA.
If we can find people who have no pro- or anti-arroyo opinions who can serve as commissioners, then bring them on. but highly unrealistic. but i'm in favor of comelec commissioners na associated with the admin or the opposition as long as credible sila, hindi corrupt, at balanced ang membership sa COMELEC as in 4-3 (4 associated with admin, 3 from the opposition, or 4 associated with the opposition, 3 from admin or even 5 admin, 2 opposition).
