673,446 Teachers Tapped for SK, Barangay Elections


Byline: E. T. SUAREZ

The Commission on Elections (Comelec) will tap the services of 673,446 teachers in public and private schools to conduct as members of the boards of election tellers (BETs) the voting and counting of votes in the 224,482 clustered precincts across the country for the barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan (SK) polls on Oct. 29, this year.

The Comelec, headed by Chairman Benjamin S. Abalos, Sr., approved en banc Resolution No. 8285 designating the provincial and city superintendents of schools as among its deputies for the coming elections. He directed them to submit to the election officers not later than Aug. 29, 2007 the names of all public school teachers recommended for appointment as chairpersons and members of BETs.

Abalos said public school teachers designated as chairpersons and members of BETs shall not be transferred or assigned to other position during the election period for barangay and SK polls which starts on Sept. 29 and ends on Nov. 13 this year.

He said in making appointments to the BETs, priority will be given to those who served as chairpersons or members of BETs in previous elections. But since there are not enough public school teachers to fill up the positions, teachers from private schools or registered voters of the polling where they are to serve who are not incumbent barangay officials can be appointed.

Abalos said each of the BET will be composed of a public school teacher as chairperson, another as poll clerk and the third as member.

He said public school teachers will also be tapped as chairpersons and members of the barangay boards of canvassers. Each board in every barangay, composed of a chairperson and two members, is required to meet immediately in a building where a polling place is located and most centrally located in the barangay to canvass the results and proclaim the winners.
