This year’s Sangguniang Kabataan elections is a make or break for youth leaders.

Quezon City Vice Mayor Joy Belmonte said this is the last chance for the youth to prove that they are worthy of people’s trust and vote and will perform their duties well for the next three years.

She warned that she would not hesitate to recommend again the permanent abolition of SK to Congress if elected youth leaders would not function well and worse, get involved in illegal drugs and corruption.

“This is a very crucial election for the youth because if we don’t see any changes. Maybe, there’ll be new arguments for its abolition, permanently,” the lady politiko said.

Thousands are expected to troop to different poll precincts in Quezon City to cast their votes for the village and youth elections today (May 14).
