Synchronized Bohol Barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan (SK) elections were held on October 25, 2010 in the Philippines. The electorate elected in nonpartisan elections, the Barangay chairman also known as the Punong Barangay and members of the Sangguniang Barangay (Village council) for voters aged 18 and above. While voters aged 15 to 17 voted for the chairman of the Sangguniang Kabataan (Youth village council) and members of the Katipunan ng mga Kabataan. Due to funding issues, the Commission on Elections opted to use the manual voting system instead of the automated elections as was done in the last 2010 national elections.[1]

Background

Republic Act No. 9340 mandates that synchronized elections for the Barangay and SK elections to be held on the last Monday of October after three years.[2] There are 630,375 positions to be decided on Election Day in 42,095 barangays (Villages) across the Philippines.[3] However, the elections have been postponed in several areas due to damage caused by Typhoon Megi (Juan) while in the provinces of Isabela, Cagayan and Kalinga where voting will start early from 6 AM to 2 PM instead of the normal voting hours from 7 AM to 3 PM.[4]

The Commission on Elections has delivered the needed election paraphernalia to the voting areas on October 24, 2010, although there are areas were the materials were delivered late.[5] The Philippine National Police (PNP) has heightened security in the lead-up to the polls and has placed it on full alert. Cases of election-related violence has reduced since 2007, with 29 incidents recorded since the nationwide gun ban on September 25, 2010.[6][7]

Proposal to abolish the Barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan

Due to spending costs, there are proposals in the Senate to abolish the Sangguniang Kabataan (SK).[8] Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile and Senator Edgardo Angara are proposing to replace SK with youth representatives to be elected in provincial, city and municipal boards. Enrile also proposed to abolish the Barangay system with mayors appointing leaders in the respective barangays instead.[9]

Candidates

The Department of Interior and Local Government has issued a list of officials who have served multiple-terms which prohibited under the law, more commonly known as "multiple termers".[10] Under COMELEC Resolution No. 9077, the Barangay Boards of Canvassers (BBOC) will suspend the proclamation of these candidates based on the list given. The COMELEC says that it will file charges of election disqualification and criminal charges if a candidate is proven as a multiple-termer.[11] There are currently 4,433 barangay officials prohibited from running in the election and can only serve for three consecutive terms.[12]
