Barangay

Forthcoming is the barangay election thus campaign posters have sprouted in the villages all over the country. A government unit that operates at the people level is the barangay so this must be (should be) the most important government unit. I like the thought that this political unit exists prior to the arrival of Spaniards, hence it’s a Malay heritage with no bad memories as compared to those gobernadorcillo-headed pueblos and much bigger political units headed by alcade mayor and so on.

When it comes to campaign paraphernalia, I like those crude ones such as that repurposed rice sack poster with Pentel pen written "BILLYCARO"
