Cebu, Bohol guvs happy with postponement of polls

CEBU Governor Hilario Davide III and Bohol Governor Edgar Chatto were happy that President Rodrigo Duterte has signed into law the postponement of the barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan (SK) elections.

In an interview, Davide said he initially wanted that the barangay and SK elections would proceed.

But with Duterte approving the postponement, Davide is glad that the issue is finally settled.

Chatto said he wasn't surprised that Duterte would again postpone the Barangay and SK elections.

He said it will give "breathing space" for their constituents to following the conclusion of the last national and local elections last year. (JKV/SunStar Cebu)
