PASAY CITY – Senator Francis Escudero, chairman of the panel on the joint congressional oversight committee on automated elections, has asked the Commission on Elections (Comelec) to produce “tentative terms of reference” for bidders before the Senate could approve the proposed supplemental
budget.

Reacting to Escudero’s suggestion, Comelec chairman Jose Melo said “it could be done” but this matter would be up for discussion before the Comelec en banc.

Escudero said his suggestion intended to make sure the Senate would not rush the approval of the poll automation budget.

“We just received it from the lower chamber yesterday [Tuesday],” Escudero said.

Melo said the poll body was scheduled to release the terms of reference on March 25 if Congress would approve the supplemental budget before the Holy week recess, which starts March 6.

As of posting time, the Comelec Advisory Council is drafting the terms of reference, added Ray Anthony Roxas Chua III, head of advisory council and the Commission on Information and Communications Technology.
