SK elections to be synchronized with 2016 barangay elections
Originally, it was scheduled on February 21, 2015.
Under the committee recommendation, the SK elections will be synchronized with the barangay elections in October 2016.
The panel, headed by Capiz Rep. Fredinel Castro, also approved the consolidated versions of House Bills 5006 and 5043 that seek to prioritize the reforms in the SK system.
The proposed reorganization of the youth council, however, is not covered by the consolidated bills.
Said reforms will be handled by the Local Government Committee, according to Castro.
