Congress (9/13/16) approved HB3504 for the postponement of the 2016 Barangay Elections to October 2017. Then the Speaker of the House of Representatives of the Philippines, Mr. Pantaleon Alvarez insinuated that the SK and barangay councils should be abolished because he claims that “In reality, they are not working.” The current administration is toying with the idea of appointing the barangay officials. In effect making the barangay officials puppets of the administration. This is not eliminating political dynasty, this is propagating political dynasty, not just by blood but also by political alliance. NO. NO. NO.
