Cebu Governor Gwen Garcia supports the postponement of the Sangguniang Kabataan (SK) and barangay elections to 2022.

The postponement would prevent officials from implementing projects for the sake of re-election, said Garcia in an interview.

On December 3, President Rodrigo Duterte signed Republic Act 11462, moving the May 2020 barangay and SK elections to December 2022. (https://bit.ly/2qFQVnu)

Meanwhile, Garcia said she will present the guidelines on the allowed provincial aid to the barangays during the general assembly of the Association of Barangay Captains today.

The guidelines would ensure that assistance given by the province would benefit the residents who are in need, she added.
