Brgy poll deferment not good idea – mayor
by Dionisio Dennis Jr/ PNA

Mayor Mauricio Domogan said he is not keen on favoring the postponement of the barangay election in October and the selection of barangay officials through appointment by the President, saying these violate the Constitution.

Domogan, in his weekly press conference, said he prefers that barangay officials are chosen by the people through an electoral process.

Domogan said that appointing the next set of barangay officials is a deprivation of the people’s right to select their representatives.

“Our Constitution states that government officials including the barangay officials are selected by winning the election.”

“The election gives our constituents the liberty to the select their barangar officials,” he said.

President Duterte has repeated in his many speeches his opposition to the conduct of barangay election to prevent narco-politicians from holding office or even using drug money to win a seat.

“The proliferation of illegal drugs is one of the reasons why the President wants to postpone the barangay election,” Domogan said.

“But as far as I am concerned, let’s give the people their rights to select their barangay officials through an election.”

Commission on Elections officials said that they are still pursuing the preparations for the barangay election in October because no ruling has been issued to postpone its conduct.
