Voters Criticizes Kathniel for Taking Photos while Voting

Posted by   on

Is Kathniel  in trouble?

Kapamilya primetime love team of Kathniel, Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla is under fire in social media after their election photos surface online.

As posted in social media, Kathryn and Daniel take photos while while casting their votes  which is most likely a violations against the COMELEC rules.





The online community calls it as an act of indiscipline.

NO SELFIE

Days before the election, the  Commission  officially reminded voters that they are not allowed to use their phone to take photos inside the polling place on May 9, unless they want to end up in police custody.

Comelec rules prohibit voters, watchers, and members of the Board of Election Inspectors (BEIs) from taking photos of the ballots or voter’s receipts inside the polling precinct, as it violates the sanctity and secrecy of the ballot.

Comelec Resolution 8786 states that “use of carbon paper, paraffin paper or other means of making a copy of the contents of the ballot, or otherwise make use of any other scheme to identify his vote, including the use of digital cameras, cellular phones with camera or similar gadgets” are prohibited

However, it is not clear if what be the punishment for the violators of the said no selfie rules.

Bottomline, it is the responsibility of the COMELEC to guard each polling precincts and enforce the rules without bias or reservations.
