BSP gets final source code for 2022 polls from Comelec

General

The Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) has received from the Commission on Elections (Comelec) the final source code for the May 9, 2022 national and local elections.

The Comelec on Monday handed over to the BSP the final trusted build of the transmission router source code, which is needed to ensure the secure distribution of election results and other related data to different endpoints.

The source code was deposited in a high-security vault, as mandated by Republic Act 9369, otherwise known as the election automation law.

BSP Governor Benjamin Diokno, Comelec chairman Saidamen Pangarungan, representatives from the Parish Pastoral Council for Responsible Voting, and the media were present during the turnover.

“We share the Comelec’s strong commitment to upholding integrity and reinforcing public trust and confidence in the upcoming elections,” Diokno said.

The source code was stored on a flash drive and kept in a secure metal box, similar to the initial batch deposited last February 2, 2022.

The BSP had also kept in its vaults the election source codes in 2010, 2013, 2016, and 2019.
