Despite uncertainty on whether the Barangay Election will push through or not, the Commission on Election (Comelec) Palawan is still continually preparing for the said elections this year, said Jomel Ordas of Puerto Princesa Comelec.
It can be recalled that President Rodrigo Duterte has previously postponed the Barangay SK elections due to be held last October 2016.
The Congress is still to make a resolution on whether the postponement will continue this year.
In any case, said Ordas, the Provincial Comelec is still in the process of completing the requirements should an election happen this year. They are also updating the final list of voters, continually purchasing and printing the needed ballot list, and preparing for the training of teachers and other government agencies.
