In 2004, he wasamong the military officers who were accused of rigging theelections for President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo.Last February 2009, Yusoph, a provincial prosecutor in Marawi City,was appointed by former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo to theComelec to replace Commissioner Romeo Brawner who died.“Remember I did not give you a clear answer when you asked meabout Yusoph after he was appointed. It is because I do not trusthim at all,” said Hadji Abdullah Dalidig, head of the IslamicMovement for Electoral Reforms and Good Governance (IMERGG).He confirmed that bribes were paid to pay election officials in thelast May 10 elections.Dalidig, who chaired the National Citizens Movement for FreeElections (NAMFREL) in Lanao del Sur, was the 2004 whistleblowerwho uncovered the dagdag-bawas electoral cheating that allegedlybenefited former President Arroyo.

This was the surprise ending of the 29-day hostage ordeal of theyoung Yusoph who was snatched in in front of the Bato Ali Mosquein Marawi City.Wearing a dark blue jacket and white tshirt, Nuraldin appeared to bedazed and at times covered his face from the glare of photographers’ flashes and TV camera lights.“I was constantly threatened and blindfolded. I was always movedaround from one place to another,” the young Yusoph told reportersbefore he was whisked to Manila this morning. He said he wasthreatened to be killed at least nine times while in captivity.
