 i-site’s 2007 Election Files
Senator Juan Miguel Zubiri, a Team Unity (TU) candidate, was the “biggest beneficiary” of the Maguindanao CoC fraud, adds Halal, because the statistically improbable results from six Maguindanao municipalities gave him a 19,292 vote-margin over bitter rival Aquilino Pimentel III and propelled him to the winner’s circle.
The Pagalungan ERs, mysteriously set aside and left uncanvassed until only last Friday, show that all 37 senatorial bets did garner votes, contrary to the results in the provincial CoC submitted by provincial supervisor Lintang Bedol where 18 candidates received “statistically improbable” zero votes.
In the Pagalungan tally, TU’s Juan Miguel Zubiri was in seventh place, which is somehow consistent with his showing in the other ARMM provincial results: fourth in Lanao del Sur, fifth in Shariff Kabunsuan, sixth in Sulu, eighth in Basilan, and 11th in Tawi-Tawi.

 Eleksyon 2007 » Abalos not helpless, says reader
Maguindanao has 300,000 voters and the province drew controversy when the administration senatorial candidates scored a 12-0 sweep there in a preliminary count late last month.
Maguindanao PBOC chairman Lintang Bedol was able to attend a canvassing procedure of the Comelec, during which he admitted that poll watchers of the political parties and volunteers of poll watchdogs were not present during the canvassing.
The poll body had summoned the local officials in the 22 municipalities in Maguindanao in order to get their reactions and also show proof why the Comelec should not conduct the special elections in the province after the PBOC failed to conduct the recanvassing of the COCs from the area last Wednesday.

PAGALUNGAN, Maguindanao – As millions of children in new freshly-ironed uniforms troop to classrooms when school opens nationwide on Monday, classes continue for 504 of their peers in five makeshift salanggui-protected and nipa-roofed classrooms at the Inug-ug Elementary School in war-torn Barangay Inug-ug here.
It was another sad experience for children who, in the past, have gotten accustomed to intermittent schooling because they have been evading bullets and bombs and running with their parents and siblings from one safe refuge to another, depending on the goodwill of government welfare groups, NGOs and benefactors, etc. etc.
The military was quick to blame rebels for burning the last ray of academic hope for Pagalungan’s evacuee-children, but whoever was responsible for the atrocity remained a mystery to this day and nobody has been made to account for the crime.

 Marines sent to hunt Pentagon kidnap gang - Feb. 19, 2004
ZAMBOANGA CITY -- Marines would be re-deployed to areas formerly occupied by the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) in Pikit, North Cotabato and in Pagalungan, Maguindanao, not to provoke the MILF but boost the government's anti-kidnapping campaign.
Roy Kyamko, Southern Command chief, said starting today, Marines would be moved near the Buliok complex in the Liguasan Marsh, but this would be done to boost the military's campaign against the Pentagon kidnap-for-ransom group headed by Alonto Tahir.
He said instead of the redeployment, the military could have easily asked the MILF to assist in running after the Pentagon, as embodied in previous agreements.
