Comelec eyes October 2013 barangay, SK elections postponement

The Commission on Elections (Comelec) wants to postpone the barangay (village) elections in October to 2014, poll chairman Sixto Brillantes Jr. said Monday.

"I'd like to postpone the barangay elections. I'd rather prepare for 2016. I suggest, October 2014 or January 2015 [for barangay polls].”
 
Brillantes will endorse to Congress a bill postponing the October 2013 barangay elections.

“There are already pending bills, we will endorse them. Officially I will endorse a postponement,” he said.

In the Senate, Sen. Ramon Bong Revilla has filed Senate Bill 3242, which aims to synchronize the barangay and SK elections with the May 2016 national and local elections. Meanwhile, Sen. Ferdinand "Bongbong" Marcos Jr. filed bill Senate Bill 2377, which seeks to postpone the polls to October 2015.
