Amid calls for the postponement of the barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan (SK) elections, senators on Monday pushed for its synchronization with the 2013 local and national elections.
Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile and Senator Juan Miguel Zubiri said the barangay and SK polls should be synchronized with the 2013 elections instead of being conducted on October 25.
"I am for the synchronization dahil masyadong magastos ‘yang (because it is too costly to hold) frequent elections. We’ll economize much and maybe what we can save can be earmarked for education and health," Enrile told reporters after the Senate consultative meeting on the postponement of the October polls on Monday.
With the proposed postponement and synchronization, Enrile said he hopes to save a lot of the governments money. "We will save on paper, freight, logistical support and manpower," he said.
The Comelec has allotted at least P3.4 billion for the conduct of the barangay and SK elections in October and about P15 to P20 billion for the local and national elections in May 2013. 
Election to the Senate of the Philippines will be held on Monday, May 13, 2013. This is to elect 12 of the 24 seats in the Senate. Together with those elected in 2010, they will comprise the 16th Congress. The senators elected in 2010 will serve until June 30, 2016, while the senators elected in this election will serve up to June 30, 2019. The elections to the House of Representatives as well as local elections will occur on the same date. The Philippines uses plurality-at-large voting for seats in the Senate: the twelve candidates with the highest amount of votes wins the twelve seats up for election.
