Comelec eyes filing of COC for barangay, SK elections in first week of July

The filing of certificates of candidacy for the barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan elections (BSKE) will be opened in the first week of July, Commission on Elections (Comelec) chairperson George Garcia said Tuesday.

“Ang plano namin mas maaga. First week ng July plano po natin magpa-file na ng candidacy upang ma-resolve na agad namin 'yung mga disqualification cases at nuisance cases na minsan ay pagkadami-dami,” Garcia told Dobol B TV.

(Our plan is to open the filing of candidacy at an earlier time. We will open the filing of candidacy in the first week of July so we can immediately resolve disqualification cases and nuisance cases which are sometimes so many.)

Garcia reminded the public that for SK positions, the commission will not accept those over 24 years old. For regular candidates, it will also reject those who are not registered voters.

The 2023 BSKE is set on October 30.—AOL, GMA Integrated News
