New COMELEC Commish vows transparent elections

Newly appointed COMELEC Commissioner Christian Robert Lim

Newly appointed Commission on Elections Commissioner Christian Robert S. Lim, in his visit today at the poll body’s main office, has vowed to work for clean and transparent automated elections during his term.

Lim, 37, will be filling the position vacated by Gregorio Larrazabal who ended his term February 2 this year. Lim, who is among the youngest Commissioners ever appointed to the poll body, will serve until February 2, 2018.

In his interview with the ABS-CBN News Channel upon learning of his appointment, Lim said: “Being a practitioner with the experience of the automation, it’s more on the transparency aspect of how automation really works. That is how I would like to focus my work on.”

A seasoned expert on election laws, Lim has conducted numerous trainings and seminars on the Automated Election Law (RA 8436) and on the Fair Elections Act (RA 9006), in his capacity as part of the Legal/Anti-Fraud Group/Quick Reaction Team of the Aquino-Roxas Campaign during the May 10, 2010 Presidential Elections.

He was also a Private Prosecutor during the Estrada impeachment trial. He ranked 16th in the 1998 bar examinations, obtaining a grade of 88.05%.
