An electoral process knowledge supplement
To close the knowledge gap in the nation’s electoral process, a Commission on Elections (Comelec) officer in Western Visayas has produced a list of all electoral violations.
“Anyone can perform activities that are criminal in nature when they are committed during an election. More than 300 electoral crimes have been reported. The Comelec regional director and author of “Election Violations A Compendium,” attorney Dennis Ausan, said on Saturday that this is the first and, in fact, the only book specifically dealing with election offenses.
Some election-related books merely cover the annotated Omnibus Election Code or have one chapter dedicated to the election process, according to Ausan.
The academic community, attorneys, law enforcement organizations, candidates, Comelec media, and other stakeholders will find it useful, he continued.
Due to the fact that “our electoral process is one cycle starting from registration through to (the) proclamation of candidates,” Ausan highlighted that readers could discover in the book that election infractions could be carried out even outside of election years.
He started compiling notes more than ten years ago, but the epidemic was the only time he could concentrate on writing.
The hardbound, 566-page book covers transgressions from voter registration through the pre-and post-election periods, as well as voting from abroad.
Penalties and investigations are the subjects of one of its twelve chapters.
A Compendium on Pre-proclamation Controversies (2007), A Compendium on Election Laws (2009), and A Pocket Guide to Ballot Appreciation (2017) are the other three election-related works Ausan has produced.
