·1 min read

CEBU City Sangguniang Kabataan (SK) Federation President Jessica Resch urged the Commission on Audit (COA) to include the transactions and liquidation reports of SK councils in their annual audit report.

Amid reports of the postponement of the Barangay and SK elections to 2023 or 2024, Resch said it is now time for COA to check on the fiscal management of SK before any elections would happen.

Resch told reporters Wednesday, September 14, 2022, that in her opinion, having an election this year or postponing it to another date does not matter as long as a smooth transition will be guaranteed before they step down from office.

“Naa mi problem nga dili gihapon siya i-record or i-check sa COA ang mga documents and it is the right time for the national (government) to focus on this one... If ever this year or next year (election), ang transition sa SK hapsay kaayo,” said Resch.

Resch also asked the Commission on Elections (Comelec) to facilitate the conduct of special elections for barangays that do not have a complete SK council.

Some elected SK officials have already resigned from their post or have become ineffective in performing their duties, she added. (IRT)
