MANILA, Philippines—The Commission on Elections (Comelec) announced on Thursday that it has postponed the Sangguniang Kabataan elections (SK) to April 25.

Comelec spokesperson James Jimenez in a press briefing said Comelec Resolution No. 9930 postponed the SK elections pending the enactment of the law postponing the elections to October 2016.

Jimenez, however, clarified that the postponement “was a temporary measure to give the poll body enough time to prepare, in case the youth polls will really push through this year.”
