The National Youth Commission (NYC) through a meeting with the regional youth advisory council in region 10 urges the youth to register to be able to vote for Sangguniang Kabataan (SK) elections in October 2017.
Kenneth Piloton of the National Anti-Poverty Commission (NAPC) youth sector said that since the opening of registration for SK elections this year, there are still many of the youth who are unregistered.
Piloton further said youth aged 15-30 years old may register to vote next year.
On October 15, 2016, President Rodrigo Roa Duterte approved Republic Act No. 10923 entitled, “An Act postponing the October 2016 Barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan Elections.”
