The barangay system

  • The barangay system is what makes the Philippines, the community oriented country of the world. The core LGU (Local Government Unit) of the Philippines is the barangay. Each barangay has its Chairman (captain) and council who are elected into office every three years by popular vote of the community registered voters. Take the time to read the 130 pages of: The Local Government Code of The Philippines
  • Help update the webpage of the barangay you grew up in. Each page that we provide is an interactive page whereby any registered user may edit or update.
  • If you do not wish to register, you may still update your barangay via email to: franklin_maletsky@yahoo.com or Via Facebook by posting your updates or pictures to the OBI Facebook Page

Why doesn't the government of the Philippines promote the barangays?

  • The COMELEC as of May 7, 2015 still does not have all the barangay election results posted.
  • The DOT (Department of Tourism), seldom mentions the name of the barangay as to where the resorts or popular landmarks are.
  • The LTO - In the the section of driver's license where it says ADDRESS: (Street NO. City/Municipality, Province). It does not ask for the barangay.
  • Most business addresses in urban areas simply put the street number and name, City/Municipality, Province and zipcode. The barangay name is omitted. Yet to acquire or renew the business license, it is required that a barangay clearance must be acquired first.

Why does the Philippine government continue to make incorrect reports?

  • NSCB - National Coordination and Statistical Board reports incorrectly that Zamboanga City is part of the province of Zamboanga del Sur.
  • The COMELEC: Also reports that Zamboanga City is within the province of Zamboanga del Sur.
  • Geographically Zamboanga City is at least 112 kilometers from the border of Zamboanga del Sur. Zamboanga City borders only the province of Zamboanga Sibugay and Zamboanga del Norte.
  • Zamboanga City is in the Zamboanga peninsula but is not part of Zamboanga del Sur.
