THE Commission on Elections yesterday said it would suspend the proclamation of at least four winning candidates for Sangguniang Kabataan chairpersons and councilors in the city because they are overaged.
City elections officer Ramil Acol said the four winning candidates are among the 23 bets for various SK positions here who are hounded by age issues. Officials said those found to be over 24 years on May 14, 2018 are disqualified from seeking SK positions.
Acol said the overaged candidates were informed that they were overaged but they insisted on running.
Comelec said there were also 22 overaged SK candidates in Misamis Oriental, 16 in Misamis Occidental, one in Bukidnon, and seven others in Lanao del Norte.
