This book discusses how in a Philippine context, the bureaucracy and the Commission on Elections (Comelec) is dysfunctional and that corruption has a ubiquitous impact on governance and administration that has defined how that states operate. Scholars and commentators have described Philippine democracy as a paradox. This book uses the unprecedented May 2010 synchronized automation of elections - an attempt at electoral engineering - to better understand the lingering paradox of Philippine politics and its public administration system
