The New Face of the COMELEC Website

August 30, 2012

Fresh from winning their “PWD-friendly Website” Award at the 34th NDPR Week, COMELEC  proudly launched their new website’s accessible features  last August 15, 2012, in support of the “Fully Abled Nation’s” drive for  disability-inclusive elections.

To fully access PWDs to local/global socio-economic opportunities and push their “RIGHT TO INFORMATION”  called for in the “UN-Convention on the Rights of PWDs”, the National Council on Disability affairs (NCDA) in sync with the National Computer Center and the Philippine Web Accessibility Group (PWAG) hold workshops for web designers and awards agencies compliant to the set standards in the “NCDA-NCC Joint Circular on Web Accessibility”.
