Philippine Embassy in Abu Dhabi begins importing votes from Dubai to consolidate UAE vote

May. 15, 19 | 12:08 pm

The Philippine Embassy in Abu Dhabi has begun importing data coming from the Philippine Consulate General in Dubai and the Northern Emirates on the 3rd day of canvassing as Consul General Paul Raymund Cortes visited the Embassy to hand over the SD cards carrying the Dubai vote of over 28,000 OFWs.

This is one of the few final steps before they send the partial, official result for the UAE vote to COMELEC in the Philippines that reflect the vote of a total of 44,295 overseas Filipino voters.

15,808 out of 109,130 voted in Abu Dhabi, which reflects 14.48% of the total number of registered voters. The figure reflects a 373.66% increase of voters compared to the 2013 midterm election figures for Abu Dhabi where only 3,337 voted.

In Dubai, 28,487 voted out of 209,202 that comprises of 13.62% of the total number of voters for Dubai and the Northern Emirates.

A total of 44,295 overseas Filipinos voted in the UAE out of 318,332 that reflects almost 14% of the total number of registered Filipino voters in the entire country.

Both Abu Dhabi and Dubai experienced a few delays with corrupted SD cards that had to be replaced with SD cards issued directly from COMELEC in the Philippines. Each SD card reflects up to 1,000 votes, depending on total usage.

Dubai had 8 corrupted SD cards that carried around 1,200 votes in total while Abu Dhabi had one corrupted SD card carrying around 200 votes. All corrupted SD cards had since been replaced with all ballots fed to the Smartmatic machine once again under the supervision of poll watchers.

Out of Abu Dhabi’s 110 SD cards, 18 SD cards contained a combined 15,808 votes; while for Dubai, more than 30 SD Cards out of a total of 220 SD cards carried the votes of 28,487 overseas Filipinos.

Upon completion of the tally, Ambassador Hjayceelyn Quintana herself will head to the Philippines personally deliver the certificates of canvass to COMELEC.
