MANILA, Philippines – Former poll commissioner Augusto "Gus" Lagman on Thursday questioned the decision of the Commission on Election (Comelec) to continue its partnership with Smartmatic-Total Information Management (TIM), the poll body’s automation service provider in the 2010 and 2013 polls.

During the Joint Congressional Oversight Committee (JCOC) hearing held at the Senate session hall on Thursday, Lagman challenged the P6.3 billion contract signed last September 4, for the lease of 70,977 Optical Mark Reader (OMR) machines to be used in the May 2016 elections.
