This is the fourth time since 2016 that the Barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan Elections (BSKE) are being postponed—and are we asking why this is happening?
Republic Act 11935 has just mandated that the BSKE be rescheduled to the first Monday of October 2023. The long-overdue poll has raised concerns about how unimportant the government regards the elections of its most basic unit, and such legal anomalies where SK officials who are now past 21 years old are still holding office.
In this episode, Fr. Tito Caluag, Leloy Claudio, and Manolo Quezon talk about what are the possible reasons for the postponements in barangay elections and what are its effects on governance.
