Drug testing not required for candidates
Provincial Elections Officer lawyer Ferdinand Gujilde said that Candidates for the Barangay elections cannot be required to undergo a drug test.
If the same is required, Gujilde explained that it would require Congress to amend election laws.
However, Gujilde said that it is not a remote possibility that drug test results will be required in the next barangay election.
Guijilde also reminded the candidates to remain non-partisan; otherwise, they may be imprisoned, with a maximum service of a sentence of six years.
