It is now official, there will be no Sangguniang Kabataan (SK) elections on October 28, 2013.
President Benigno Aquino III has already signed on October 3, 2013 (Thursday) the law postponing the youth council polls which was supposedly sychronized with the barangay elections on October 28.
The new date for the SK polls will be between October 28, 2014 and February 23, 2015, which shall be determined by the Commission on Elections (COMELEC).
There will be no holdover for current SK officials, who shall all step down from office when their term ends at noon on November 30, 2013.
There will also be no temporary appointments to fill the vacancy until the next elections.
Congress is now coming up with reforms in the youth councils, giving themselves a year to pass reforms into law.
