MANILA, Philippines- Inihayag ng Commission on Elections nitong Lunes na walang masasayang na pondo ng pamahalaan sakaling hindi matuloy ang barangay at Sangguniang Kabataan elections (BSKE) na nakatakda sa Disyembre.

“Any procurement of goods will not be of waste should the proposed postponement/resetting be approved into law, as the same may be utilized in the new date of BSKE,” pahayag ng Comelec.

Ayon kay Comelec Finance Services Department director Martin Niedo, ang P8.44 bilyong budget para sa barangay at SK polls “is still in the coffers of Comelec and remains unspent except for the very minimal amount.”

“None of the procured goods, including indelible inks, pens and ballot and others were wasted and all were accordingly put to its intended use,” dagdag ng Comelec.

Ilang mambabatas muka sa Senado at Kamara ang naghain ng panukala na naglalayon na suspendihin ang barangay at SK polls upang makatipid.

Magugunitang ilang beses nang nakansela ang barangay at SK elections sa ilalim ng administrasyong Duterte. RNT/SA
