The United Front for Honest Orderly Peaceful Elections (UF HOPE), a multi-sectoral collaboration of organizations in Zamboanga City, joins the call to NO Further Postponement of the Barangay & Sangguniang Kabataan Elections.
UF HOPE believes that
It is the right of every citizen to vote and to give the mandate to lead to those elected.
Just as there are barangay leaders who people trust and best serve their interests, there are also those who have lost the confidence of their constituents.
The youth needs to be supported, through the reformed Sangguniang Kabataan, as nation builders and in developing their capacity to serve their fellow youth.
Government should respond to pressing issues in the barangays like health, education, women empowerment, child welfare and the environment, among others, by instituting a fresh mandate to leaders who are responsive to these issues.
The conduct of the regular elections is a mark of a working democracy. "Elections should be conducted with certainty and regularity. Doing otherwise undermines a democratic process instituted to ensure every citizen’s right to choose their leaders and make them accountable. Regularity of elections is important to establish this mandate, legitimacy and moral authority."(NAMFREL)
It is unacceptable for Congress to postpone the elections, whatever reasons the SUFFRAGE AND ELECTORAL REFORMS COMMITTEE may have. Surely, it cannot be put over and above what is due to the Filipino people.
