“We have our safeguards but obviously it was a professional hack,” he told TeleRadyo, adding the cyber attack was an attempt to mess up their selection process. The coalition on Saturday bared 6 names of its potential candidates for president and vice president for next year’s national elections.
Pro-democracy coalition 1Sambayan said Monday its campaign app was hacked last week, claiming the attack was orchestrated by its political rivals “to maintain in power.” Lawyer Howard Calleja, one of the group’s co-convenors, said the data breach of 1Sama Ako, an application for its supporters and volunteers, occurred on Saturday.
1Sambayan named Vice President Leni Robredo, Senator Grace Poe, former senator Antonio Trillanes IV, CIBAC party-list Rep. Eddie Villanueva, Batangas Rep. Vilma Santos-Recto, and human rights lawyer Chel Diokno as its possible nominees for the country’s top 2 posts.
The group, launched in March this year, seeks to unify opposition parties for the 2022 national election. It is led by key political figures and former senior government officials, including former Ombudsman Conchita Carpio Morales, former Supreme Court Senior Associate Justice Antonio Carpio and former foreign affairs chief Albert del Rosario.
