'The electoral system must be changed'
ONE OF the country's information technology pioneers, Dr. Torres was a consultant of the Commission on Elections in 1986. He was aghast when he saw how the count was being rigged to favor Marcos, and weeks later, was in Edsa taking part in the People Power revolt.

Torres also helped lay the foundation for the country's Internet infrastructure. Today he is an advocate of modernizing the electoral system.
