Baguio City Representative Mark Go said that the postponement of the Barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan (SK) elections will spur better services in the grassroots level.
The Baguio politiko explained that barangay and SK officials must at least complete their prescribed three-year terms.
“One of the reasons is that we had our elections in 2018 and if that would only be until 2020, then that will not reach the prescribed three year term which is why we wanted that to be three years also,” Go said.
“If we were to conduct an elections in 2011, according to the Commission On Elections, it is so near for the next elections which is 2022,” he added.
President Rodrigo Duterte has signed into law the bill postponing the elections to December 2022.
