DILG urge women to run in brgy polls
by DILG release

The Department of the Interior and Local Government urged women to let their voices be heard during the barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan elections in May not just by voting but by running for elective posts.

DILG OIC-Sec. Eduardo M. Año said that the coming barangay and youth polls provide a perfect opportunity for qualified women voters to show that they can make a difference in their communities by stepping up to the challenge of running for elective positions.

The filing of certificates of candidacy for the barangay and SK polls is from April 14 to 20.

Data from the Commission on Elections show that while there are more women voters, only one in five candidates is a woman.

Año said that as most women are mothers who have raised their children well, they will also be able to run their communities effectively using the same values and qualities that have helped them nurture their families.

Naniniwala ako na marami sa mga kababaihan ay matino, mahusay, at maaasahan at ito ang mga katangiang dapat taglayin ng isang kakandidato sa darating na halalan,” he said.

Presidential Proclamations 24 and 227, and Republic Act 6469 declared March as National Women’s Month.
