SK election next month likely to be postponed

September 3, 2013 3:50 pm

THERE is a big chance that the scheduled election for Sangunian Kabataan (SK) officials this October will not push through, Sen. Ferdinand  “Bong Bong” Marcos Jr. said

Marcos, in an interview with reporters, disclosed that there seems be a  consensus both from the national government and other concerned parties to postpone the SK polls until Congress is able to address issues hounding the youth council.

Marcos, chair of the Senate Committee on local government, said that he will try to have the committee report finished and signed by the members of the panel this week and report it to the plenary by Monday, September 9.

“We need to tackle the proposal immediately in so that the Comelec [Commission on Election] will know if there is a need for the poll body to prepare for SK polls or not,” Marcos said in an interview after the Senate hearing on SK election postponement.

Comelec Chairman Sixto Brillantes, in a separate interview expressed no objection over the suspension of this year’s SK election but maintained that the agency will continue to prepare for both barangay and SK polls until Congress approves the proposal.

According to Brillantes, the postponement of the youth council elections will also help the Comelec see if the barangay could function even without SK. JEFFERSON ANTIPORDA

  1. sk is not corrupt as a comelec thinking. kung e abolished ang sk pwd e sama nalang ang kapitan, kagawad pati na mayor, congressman at lahat. .kung ang sk corrupt how about high position government dbuh??? marami naman capitan very bad influenced of the sk they want to control the budget of sk. .in fact sila ang gustong gumastos sa budget ng sk at hindi ang sk which is ang sk dapat .. hindi e aprove sa capitang ang activity design ng sk council dahil gusto ng kapitan na ang kanyang budget ang masusunod.. kung para dapat sa mga kabataan bakity and brgy captain ang gagamit para pamulitika niya para sa sunod election.. ang sk walang katakbohan na ina aboso ng captain ang kang kapangyarihan.. sk is very young to serve but if the GOVERNMENT support and train the SK the SK will become model for the higher politician to be a good leader,

    I am calling the special attention of DILG to look upon the performance of Sangguniang Kabataan leaders. Due to the proposals in both the lower and upper house of congress in which prescribing the extension of the term of office of SK Officials, they should scrutinize very well if this officials are really deserving to be retained in office. Some of these officials are not even attending regular sessions where in fact it is there primordial responsibility to do so.

    SK’s are not corrupt, its the very institution of this government who taught them to be corrupt. Higher ranking officials who are supposed to teach the SK’s the cleanest way of handling public office shared to them crocodilic and dirty politics by budget manipulations and participating in partisan politics. This is not the kind of youth Jose Rizal dreamed of. This is not the system politics that could bring us to the Canaan. This is not the institution that I am proud of. This is the very institution that I want reforms since from the very start of my participation. I joined the system in order to change it but the sickness of this organization as a whole gets into an epidemic level that it can’t be healed by a single doctor but with all the doctors in the DOH- Department of HELP. I believe that a tooth and an iron fist of political will could solve the dilemma.

    With all my wants to take pride with the fact that I belong to this institution, I can’t afford to do so. Attention DILG! With these I am submitting myself too.

    Ang dapat imbestigahan ay ang pagsasabwatan ng kapitan, contractor, mayor, at COA.
    Napakahirap nilang banggain.

    Matagal na gustong tanggalin o e- abolosh SK bakit ngyon lang, Marami ng magulang at bata ang nagsakrispisyo sa kanilang gastusin at efforts. Dumaan din kayo sa pagiging kabataan, dapat may mamuno sa kabataan sa isang barangay, sa tingin ninyo po susunod ang kabataan kung walang leader. At, hindi lahat kabataan ay corrupt , marami pang kabataan na totoo at matinong at gustong maglingkod ng tapat.
    Ang aking commento sa comelec, kung gusto ninyo iabolish ang sk dapat noon pa at hindi na ngkaroon ng voters registration pa.

    Kung ipipilit ng Marcos Bong-Bong at mga ibang senador at congressman, paki-usap ko lang sa mga Kabataan sa Pilipinas huwag natin silang iboto hindi sila makatao mahilig lang silang mag pa pogi. Bakit hindi ayusin ang Pork Barrel, Iniiba lang nila usapan. Bakit hindi bigyan ng sapat na oras sa tamang pagkakataon. Hindi dapat gawin ang proposal sa oras na ito. Para bang mag nobya at nobyo na nag-usap na sila kung kailan ang kasal at may date tapos biglang may sisingit na huwag nyo nang itutuloy ang kasal sa petsang ito, eh hindi mo naman kamag-anak ang nagsabi kaya mabwi-bwisit ka lang. Ituloy ang SK Election sapagkat naayon sa batas at naka prepare na halos lahat. Kung kailangan baguhin bigyan ng ample time tapusin mo na ang term na ito. Kung ipipilit ng SENADO at KONGRESO hwag natin iboto ang mga lintik na mga yan.

    reform the system……not to abolish

  11. michelle says:

    yes to SK election postponement but i strongly disagree that they will abolish the SK .
    YES because the senate should really need to have reforms on it especially the age limit . we all know that the age bracket of SK is 15-17 , and folks that is so freakin’ young citizens of our society. i am a member of SK so i know that 15-17 is not the proper age for this kind of responsibility because i’ve been there.
    NO because its our right to do something for this country, for our nation. All we need is REFORMATION not ABOLITION.
    i suggest that the SK should have a monthly seminar regarding the rules and regulations as well as the responsibilities an SK should do.
    :) that’s all thank you and God Bless !

    The SK election must push through, there is a need to change those SK officials who are not working. Why not give chance to the youth and be it an evaluation period to imposed what measures are to change.

  13. No to SK abolishment – Baket nga ba gustong tanggalin? Sabi nila kasi daw ang mga KABATAAN ang nagiging sanhi ng korapsyon? Eh kung ganun naman pala paano matatanggal sa puwesto ang mga korap na mga namumuno kung tatanggalin ninyo ang SK election ngayong taong ito?

  14. Roldan Batac says:

    SK election must push through and should not be abolished. Start of Corruption? hindi siguro. it is the foundation of good governance. Think positive.

  15. Jimmy Reyes says:

    The SK should be abolished, It’s the start of corruption. Barangay can well function without SK.
