‘SK headed
towards abolition’

BY CARLA GOMEZ

The Sangguniang Kabataan is headed towards abolition, Rep. Alfredo Abelardo Benitez (Neg. Occ., 3rd District) said yesterday.

“If you ask me it is going toward abolition,” Benitez said, pointing out that both houses of Congress agreed that there will be no hold-over SK officials during the one year in which lawmakers decide on the faith of the youth organization.

It is better for the youth to just go to school, rather than worry about politics, Benitez said.

“We have one year to discuss a youth program to replace the SK,” he said.

Negros Occidental Gov. Alfredo Marañon Jr. said that, without the SK polls, the October 28 elections for barangay officials only will be less difficult.

He urged the public to help make the barangay elections peaceful, orderly and honest.*CPG
