Department of the Interior and Local Government sets Sangguniang Kabataan special polls in Quezon City

January 29, 2019

THE Department of the Interior and Local Government has scheduled another poll exercise for the Sangguniang Kabataan (SK) in six other barangays in Quezon City to fill its vacant slots.

Set on February 2, SK registered voters were encouraged to come out and select their youth leaders in Barangays St. Ignatius, White Plains, Manga, Blue Ridge A, Quirino 2A and Loyola Heights.

The DILG had just concluded the first set of elections last January 23 and 26, in Barangays Damar, Lourdes, Sienna, West Triangle, dona Josefa, Laging Handa, Mariana and Teachers Village East and West.

According to DILG-QC director Atty. Ana Lyn Baltazar-Cortez, Districts 1, 3 and 4 are the districts with incomplete SK members or no SK members at all.

Baltazar-Cortez said it is necessary to have a complete membership in the SK since it is vital in the implementation of the youth-oriented programs and utilization of their fund.

SK is entitled to  10 percent of the city’s annual general fund.
