The Commission on Elections is expecting all kinds of problems connected with the Barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan elections coming October.

The poll body pointed the problems that it mainly expects are the growing number of political dynasties and early campaigning.

Comelec chairman Sixto Brillantes Jr. sees the Barangay and SK elections as even more “bloody” compared to the May 13 midterm elections.

Brillantes also expects that those running for Barangay Chairman will roam around their places to campaign earlier than the campaign period set by the Comelec.

The filing of Certificate of Candidacy for the Barangay and SK elections is on October 15 to 17 while campaign period will start from October 18 to 26.
