MANILA (UPDATE) - President Aquino is signing into law the bill postponing the Sangguniang Kabataan elections.
Presidential spokesperson Edwin Lacierda said the President sees the need to have the SK system studied further amid calls for reform.
Lack of time to prepare for the SK polls is also being cited as a reason for the postponement.
"The President will sign the postponement law," Lacierda said.
"Right now, it's to defer at least to study further the SK but right now the bill on the table is (for the) postponement of SK elections."
