Two out of 98 newly-elected barangay captains and 686 barangay kagawads will be formally sworn into office during mass oath taking ceremonies on Saturday, June 30.

In a City Hall statement, Mayor Maria Isabelle Climaco- Salazar will administer the oath of the village officials.

The statement said that 91 barangay captains of the city joined the mass oath-taking ceremony presided in by President Rodrigo Duterte in Molave, Zamboanga del Sur last Tuesday.

“8 others failed to make it due to conflict of schedule or medical reasons,” the City Hall statement said.

A separate press release, however, by Congressman Celso Lobregat said that at least six (6) officials took their oath before the lawmaker at his residence in Nuñez yesterday.

The barangay officials including the Sangguniang Kabataan officials were elected last May 14.  (Remus Ong)
