Senator Imee Marcos hopes the third postponement of the barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan (SK) elections will be the last.
The Ilocano politiko was among the principal authors of Republic Act Number 11462, which moved the May 2020 barangay and SK elections to December 2022.
Marcos was present when President Rodrigo Duterte signed RA 11462 into law on Tuesday, December 3.
“Thank you, Mr. President! And we hope this will be the final postponement of Barangay and SK elections, so that in the future, barangay elections will be regular and predictable – one year after the national elections,” Marcos said.
“Barangays are the government’s frontline, and their officials need security and support to deliver government services to the people,” she added.
