Rama leaves it to Marcos to decide on BSKE postponement
Cebu City Mayor Michael Rama said that the decision to hold or postpone the Barangay and Sangguniang Elections (BSKE) rests solely with the chief executive.
“On matters about barangay election either it should proceed or not, I am really leaving it to the President Ferdinand ‘Bongbong’ Marcos,” said Rama.

Senator Francis Escudero also proposed a measure to move the polls to May 13, 2024.
They proposed re-directing the P8 billion BSKE funds to mitigate the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic and rising fuel prices.
