Negros Occidental 4th District Rep. Juliet Marie Ferrer is optimistic that the bills postponing the synchronized barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan elections will be approved by the House of Representatives before December 5.

Ferrer, a former member of Committee on Suffrage and Electoral Reforms, disclosed that majority of the House members are pushing for the postponement of barangay and SK elections.

The lady solon said she wants the polls to be held on May next year. (

Instead of spending money on another election, the government can put it toward Covid-19-related programs that will help rebuild the economy, she added.

Governor Eugenio Jose Lacson and Rep. Jose Francisco Benitez (3rd district) also favor the postponement of the synchronized polls.
