The House of Representatives approved today the postponement of the 2017 barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan elections to May 2018.
The chamber passed House Bill No. 6308 on third and final reading by a 212-10-0 vote.
The 17th Congress in 2016 approved a similar bill postponing the 2016 barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan elections to 2017, with the officials retaining a holdover position.
Elections are supposed to have been held on October 23 this year.
The last barangay election was held in October 2013.
