The Senate and the House of Representatives have agreed to reset the Barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan (SK) elections to 2017

Both houses agreed that the election  will be scheduled October 23, 2017. Expected the Bill will be approved September 12 at house of representatives.

The idea of the postponement of SK and Barangay election was first proposed by  COMELEC.

President Duterte also favors in the postponement,

“Do you know the reason why I also agreed with some congressmen to postpone the barangay elections? Do you know why? Because I am afraid that the drug money will seep into the electoral process,” Duterte told officers and men of the military’s Eastern Mindanao Command during the command’s 10th anniversary rites in Panacan, Davao City.

Comelec also stop the printing of ballots.
