LAOAG CITY—The Liga ng mga Barangay—more popularly known as the Association of Barangay Councils (ABC)—Ilocos Norte chapter elected their new officers on August 8, 2016 at the Sangguniang Panlalawigan Session Hall.

Representatives from the Laoag City Commission on Elections (Comelec) office, the Dept. of Interior and Local Government, Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry, and a pastor from the Sarrat Baptist Church witnessed the election.

The new ABC Ilocos Norte chapter officers are: Paul Baltazar of Sarrat, president; Celso Ragusante of Paoay, vice president; and Joel Tesoro, Faustino Tomas, Al Aguibay, Alexander Navarro and Reynaldo Mariano, board of directors.

Mr. Baltazar was the previous ABC Ilocos Norte chapter vice president; and with the election of former ABC Ilocos Norte chapter president Charles Tadena as Dingras councilor, he ascended to the position.

The ABC Ilocos Norte chapter president automatically becomes an ex-officio member of the Sangguniang Panlalawigan.


Under the Local Government Code, the Liga ng mga Barangay is governed by their own constitution and by-laws.
