    0

    Local governments and Sangguinang Kabataan (SK) across the country are in favor of postponing the SK polls, which is set to be held in October, a Cabinet official said on Friday. Secretary Manuel Roxas 2nd of Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) made the announcement when the DILG presented its P135 billion proposed budget for 2014 before the House Appropriations panel. “Based on our national consultations with various groups comprised of local executives, youth groups and SK, it was near unanimous that they want the postponement of the SK polls to give Congress ample time to strengthen the system, so that it won’t deter our political development,” Roxas told the House Appropriations panel.
