Disqualification awaits candidates for the Youth Council who falsely declare that they don’t have any relatives up to the second degree of consanguinity or affinity in the government.

This is the warning of the Commission on Elections (Comelec) ned, as it published the guidelines for filing certificates of candidacy (CoC) for the barangay and SK polls on Oct. 31.

Comelec set the filing of Certificate of Candidacies from Oct 3 to 5 during regular office hours at the Comelec office, according to a resolution passed on Aug 16.

Part of the CoC form certification the candidate is not closely related to an incumbent official at the national or local levels.

The certification reads: “I am not related within the second civil degree of consanguinity or affinity to any incumbent elected national, regional, provincial, city, municipal or barangay official in the locality where I seek to be elected to,” Comelec Chair Andres Bautista said an SK candidate who lies about having no relatives as incumbent officials would be disqualified.

In previous years, the issue of SK officers being “backed” by family members in the government have been prevalent. MJM
