The Department of the Interior and Local Government announced that vacancies in the Sangguniang Kabataan shall be filled up thru the conduct of special elections on or before January 20, 2019 or thirty (30) days after approval of the Memorandum Circular No. 2018-212 setting the guidelines in the nationwide conduct thereof.

Any registered member of the Katipunan ng Kabataan before the SK Secretary or Barangay Secretary is eligible to cast votes during the special election to be held in a venue identified by the Board of Election Supervisors consisting representatives of DILG, Commission on Elections and Civil Society or Non-Government or faith based organization.

Each set of Sangguniang Kabataan is composed of a chairperson and seven council members. The officials to be elected in this special election shall only be the number of vacant seats in the SK as available to complete the seven (7) members and the chairperson. It can be recalled that the synchronized Barangay and SK Elections was held on May 14, 2018 in all barangays but failed to complete the set of officers in many. There were positions that remained unfilled as a result of inadequate young people who filed candidacy. Vacancies to be filled up will also include those created by an SK official who refuses to assume office, fails to qualify, voluntarily resigns, dies, has become permanently incapacitated or is removed from office. There may also be vacancies as a result of the law of succession and of the failure of those who won the elections but were not able to complete the SK Mandatory Training.

A total of 819 barangays in the Cordillera Administrative Region have lacking Chairpersons or SK Members. The Special elections hope to complete the sets of SK Officials in 105 barangays in Abra, 100 in Apayao, 121 in Baguio City, 112 in Benguet, 135 in Ifugao, 122 in Kalinga and 124 in Mt. Province.

The move to complete the lists is based on the bidding of Republic Act 10742 or the SK Reform Act of 2015 establishing reforms in the SK and creating mechanisms for meaningful youth participation in nation building. A special election is necessary to fuel Sangguniang Kabataan as a local council meant to represent the youth in the barangay. ### DILG-CAR, LGMED

The Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) welcomes the appointment of former DILG Assistant Secretary and long-time Executive Director of the Local Government Academy, Marivel C. Sacendoncillo, as the new DILG Undersecretary for Local Government. She took her oath last Friday.

DILG Secretary Eduardo M. Año says that the Department is pleased with the appointment of Sacendoncillo and looks forward to working with her in pushing local governments to greater heights of excellence.

"The DILG is pleased with the appointment of Sacendoncillo as the new Undersecretary for Local Government as her long and distinguished career makes her eminently qualified to hold such an important position," Año says.

Año says that as the officer responsible for crafting relevant policies and programs for the betterment of local governance and local government units (LGUs), Sacendoncillo's experience as LGA executive director -- a position she held for more than two decades -- will "definitely come in handy".

"No one can gloss over her decades of experience and her profound understanding of the local governance landscape. That is where she thrived and built her career which makes her eminently qualified to fill that void in the Department," he explains.

Sacendoncillo replaced long-time USec. Austere Panadero who availed of optional retirement last year.

Complete package

DILG Spokesperson and Assistant Secretary Jonathan E. Malaya says that Sacendoncillo's appointment didn't come as a surprise as she is "the complete package", building her career first as a rank and file employee to becoming one of the top executives of the DILG.

"Her rise to one of the top positions of the Department is a proof in itself that she is a hard worker and dedicated to the betterment of the Department and its stakeholders. We are very excited for what's to come," he says.

Meanwhile, DILG Bureau of Local Government Development Director Anna Liza F. Bonagua says that Sacendoncillo's appointment is "a welcome development" for the Department as she ticks all the requirements for the position.

"She has the experience to back her up. Mayroon siyang experience on how to work with LGUs, ano ang prevailing situation sa baba. Which is why she is in the best position to serve as an Undersecretary for Local Government," she says.

The DILG Employee's Union through its president, Keith Lagmay, also extended their congratulations saying that Sacendoncillo is a proven capable leader.

Sacendoncillo's former staff at the LGA, Leah Marie Sanchez, says that Sacendoncillo is a "visionary leader" who shares to her co-workers her dreams for the country and how each one of us, regardless of position, can contribute to that vision.

Moving up the ladder of success

Año says that Sacendoncillo's career serves as an inspiration to the employees of the DILG as she painstakingly worked her way up to become one of the top leaders of the Department.

Sacendoncillo started her career in DILG as a Senior Human Resource Development Officer for the LGA in 1989 occupying positions such as Local Government Operations Officer and Development Management Officer along the way.

In 1996, she was appointed as the Director of the LGA where she served for more than two decades. She also served as the concurrent Regional Director (RD) of DILG Region 8 for two (2) years until she was promoted as Assistant Secretary for Local Government last August 2018.

"Isa siyang mabuting halimbawa para sa mga kawani ng pamahalaan na basta maging Matino, Mahusay at Maaasahan ka sa iyong gampanin ay tiyak na makakamit mo ang tagumpay sa iyong propesyon," says Año.

Sacendoncillo holds a Master’s degree in Development Management from the Asian Institute of Management. She also received a scholarship to study Conflict Management and Post Conflict Recovery at the University of York, United Kingdom through the Chevening Senior Fellowship Programme of the British Council. ##DILG Philippines FB Page
