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.
