We  at the Christians for National Liberation  were outraged  at the conduct and    outcome of the latest electoral exercise.   We received reports and the  news from  tri-media, revealed that  there had been “glitches” of the  vote counting machines [VCM] We cannot set aside speculations that there had been foreign meddling and systematic cheating in the polls.

There  are church groups (religious and lay leaders)  those who campaigned for the rightful candidates in a sea of fascist enablers, including the CNL and other faith believers based  on  principles.  For some, the election results  may be heartbreaking  but  as faith believers we  should never be discouraged  from resisting any looming dictatorship.

To surrender our  country to evil personified in the person of our President- is the last thing we need. This is the time now  to be engaged more than ever, way beyond these elections. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented. Voters felt deceived and bribed as they were  intimidated and manipulated by the leaders of the administration candidates to choose the people they want to win.

In view of this,  we call on  fellow Christians and faith believers (bishops, clergy,women and men religious, lay leaders)   to reject the election  result, rather continue to  organize, and  mobilize  the   masses  for the  armed struggle  as  promoted in the  papal encyclical “‘Pacem in Terris” by Saint Pope Paul VI.   Revolution  for genuine change is the solution NOT any  electoral exercise.

Join the sectoral groups who express their pent up voices of disenfranchisement and  deception experienced during the electoral exercise. We will never concede to the fraudulent electoral result ! We will continue working for the  genuine change  the people long ago  had been  longing  for.  Reject the  Election Result !
