MANILA—An election watchdog on Saturday said it will file an impeachment complaint against officials of the Commission on Elections for alleged electoral sabotage.

Mike Aragon, spokesperson of Mata sa Balota, said Comelec commissioners violated provisions of the Automated Elections Systems Law.

The group also urged the public to support the proposal to amend the Constitution that would abolish the poll body.

It earlier sought the suspension or the dismissal of several Comelec officials for supposedly failing to fully implement the automated poll system law.—Report from Arra Perez, ABS-CBN News
