There is a possibility that the Commission on Elections will no longer print new ballots for the Sangguniang Kabataan and Barangay elections, scheduled May of next year.
During the budget hearing of the COMELEC on Thursday, COMELEC chairman Andres Bautista said that they may just recycle the already printed ballots they have after Congress ratified the postponement of the SK and Brgy. elections which was supposed to happen this October.
Bautista added that the COMELEC could’ve saved a lot if the decision of Congress came earlier.
The COMELEC is asking for Php16 billion for its 2018 budget.
