Earlier reports said there’s uncertainty on whether or not the 2013 barangay elections will push through.

Comelec Chairman Sixto Brillantes, news sources say, made a recommendation for the postponement of the barangay polls to a later date due to unfinished processes and pending disqualification cases relative to the recent midterm elections.

Brillantes reportedly proposed that the commission should be given enough time to rest before another election takes place.

Various reports also indicate that there is no calendar of activities yet for the manual 2013 barangay elections.
