PROMISE: Probe 2004 vote rigging

Benigno Aquino, the man set to become the next Philippine president, said yesterday he planned to have the incumbent Gloria Arroyo investigated for alleged vote-rigging.

Aquino said that while he made no judgement about Arroyo’s guilt or otherwise, she should be investigated over a phone call she allegedly made to an election commissioner during the 2004 presidential poll.

“The bottom line is, these allegations of vote manipulation during the 2004 elections have never been settled,” Aquino told AFP in an interview as he awaited official confirmation of his victory in Monday’s election,

STATUS: Pending.
