PRESIDENT Benigno S. Aquino III said on Tuesday that it is the sworn duty of the government to secure the mandate of the people “periodically” and thus saw no need to back the recommendation of Commission on Elections chairman Sixto Brillantes postponing the conduct of the 2013 barangay elections slated to be held in October this year. 

Brillantes earlier said he will be endorsing to Congress a Bill postponing the barangay elections for next year as he and the Comelec “still have their hands full with the mid-term elections.” 

In a press briefing in Cavite City, the President said that unless there is “very good reason for the postponement,” he remains firm on his stand that the barangay elections be held at its originally scheduled time. 

“‘Yung postponement, kinakabahan ako diyan baka maraming postponement ang mangyari tulad ‘nung dating karanasan natin, at ‘yung mandato ng tao kailangan ma-secure periodically,” the President said. 
“So, unless I see very good reasons for a postponement, I think I’ll stick with my previous stand na kakayanin nila o dapat kayanin nila na mai-hold ang barangay elections as scheduled,” he added. (PND)
