Below are the main arguments raised in the communication:

1)          We have argued that the Philippines had breached the Authors’ right to suffrage guaranteed by Article 25 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights.

2)          We request that this Committee find and declare that the Republic of the Philippines breached its international obligation to guarantee the right of the Authors to the free expression of their will as electors, a right guaranteed and protected under Article 25 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights.

3)          We specifically request that this Committee declare that the Philippines violated the Authors’ right to the free expression of their will as electors, under Article 25 of the ICCPR, due to:

(a)     the highly questionable and irregular method by which the votes of the Filipino people, were counted during the 10 May 2010 automated Philippine elections, and will be counted in the 13 May 2013 automated elections, by the automated election system used;

(b)   the lack of transparency by which the votes of the Filipino people, were counted during the 10 May 2010 automated Philippine elections, and will be counted, by the source code used in the automated election system for the 13 May 2013 automated Philippines elections;

(c)    the highly questionable and irregular method by which the votes of the Filipino people, were counted during the 10 May 2010 automated Philippine elections, and will be counted in the 13 May 2013 automated Philippine elections, due the irregularity in the system integration of the automated election system.

71)   We also request that the Philippines pay the legal costs and expenses of the suit.
