MANILA, Philippines — With votes of 211-29, lawmakers passed the proposed postponement of the barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan (SK) elections in the third and final reading.
The House Bill No. 7378 proposes to reschedule May 14, 2018, polls to October 18, 2018.
The postponement aims to pave way for the conduct of plebiscite in the event the Congress passes the proposed shift of the country to a federal form of government.
Meanwhile, incumbent barangay officials will remain in their position once the proposed election postponement pushes through. — UNTV News & Rescue
