CEBU City North District Representative Rachel "Cutie" del Mar has sought the postponement of the Barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan elections (BSKE) scheduled

on December 5, 2022.

Del Mar filed House Bill (HB) 133, "An act ammending certain sections of Republic Act 11462 otherwise known as an act postponing the 2020 Barangay and

Sangguniang Kabataan elections."

The bill was submitted by del Mar during the first hour of the opening of the 19th Congress on June 30 and once approved, the BSKE will be moved to December 4,

2023.

In her explanatory note, Del Mar said that conducting the BSKE this year "definitely adds to the present division of our electorates."

The congresswoman also said that there would be additional expenditures for the conduct of the BSKE on the part of the Commission on Elections. (IRT)
