Two days before the election, hashtag “HalalanDayaan2019” trended on Twitter as Filipinos started discussing election fraud.

Shortly after Monday’s midterm vote, the hashtag was appended by buzz over gap in the Commission on Elections’ transmission of election returns.

The so-called transparency servers went dark for seven hours, preventing the public from seeing developments in the tallying.
