Rep Richard Gomez pushes for postponement of Barangay and SK elections

Leyte Rep. Richard Gomez filed a proposal to postpone for one year the scheduled Barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan Elections (BSKE) on December 2022.

According to Gomez, the postponement of the election will provide additional funding to the government that will be available to programs needed to combat the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The government will spend P8.14 billion on BSKE.

In his House Bill 937, BSKE will be held on December 5, 2023 and the winners will sit at noon on January 1, 2024.

The current Barangay and SK officials will reportedly remain in office, unless they are removed or suspended until the election winners are seated.

“Subsequent synchronized barangay and Sangguniang kabataan elections shall be held on the first Monday of December 2026 and every three years thereafter,” the bill stated.
