Barangay, SK polls sa Oktubre matutuloy (Aprobado sa Kamara, malamig sa Senado)

APROBADO sa Mababang Kapulu­ngan ng Kongreso sa pangatlo at pinal na pagbasa nitong Lunes ang House Bill 7378, nag-uurong sa May 2018 Barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan (SK) Elections sa pangalawang Lunes ng Oktubre 2018.

Kapag naging ganap na batas, ito ang pangatlong pagliban sa barangay at SK polls. Gayonman, naging ‘malamig’ ang Senado sa nasabing panukala.

Nasapawan ng kabuuang 164 mambabatas ang 27 kongresista na tumutol sa nasabing panukala.

Paliwanag ni Albay Rep. Edcel Lagman: “Twice the barangay and SK elections have been postponed by the present administration for no overriding reasons, even as in the past village polls were also repeatedly reset. These postponements are mockery of the right of suffrage and subversive of the republican system. I vote NO to a third postponement of the barangay and SK elections. Another postponement is inordinately offensive to the right of suffrage. It is not only grossly aggravating, it is also patent recidivism.”

Habang sinabi ni Magdalo Rep. Gary Alejano: “The arguments to justify the postponement are shaky at best.”

“Election is a fundamental requirement of a democracy. It is a manifestation of democracy in action as it affirms to the citizens that their right to choose their leaders is intact. As representatives of the people, we are charged to protect and promulgate this right, not trample on it,” dagdag niya.

Ayon kay Bayan Muna Rep. Carlos Zarate, ang third postponement “sets a bad and dangerous” precedent.
