Comelec: 10 EMBO barangays part of Taguig for 2023 BSKE

The Commission on Elections (COMELEC) now considers 10 former barangays of Makati City as part of Taguig City.

The COMELEC En Banc made this known in a resolution it issued dated Aug. 18.

“The Commission, after due deliberation, resolved, as it hereby resolves, to approve the recommendation/opinion of the Law Department that the barangays situated in Parcel 3 and 4, PSU-2031, can now be considered as part of Taguig City for purposes of the 2023 Barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan Elections pursuant to the Supreme Court Decision in G.R. No. 235136 entitled: ‘Municipality of Makati v. Municipality of Taguig’,” reads the COMELEC resolution.

These barangays are Cembo, Comembo, East Rembo, Pembo, Pitogo, Post Proper Northside, Post Proper Southside, Rizal, South Cembo and West Rembo.


The Supreme Court had previously issued a decision that acted on the territorial dispute of the two cities and declared these barangays as part of Taguig City.

In its resolution, the COMELEC issued orders that included instructing its Law Department to secure the SC decision and devise “a way to legally deputize the Local Government Unit (LGU) of Makati City to allow the use of the schools located in the ten (10) barangays as voting centers in case the LGU of Makati refuses the use thereof.”

Both cities are currently locked in a dispute over the use of schools that Makati City erected but are now in the territory of Taguig City because of the SC ruling.

Among its directives, the COMELEC also instructed its Election Records and Statistics Department (ERSD) to create a new data base of voters for Makati and Taguig cities.

The poll body also ordered its Printing Committee to print ballots of the 10 barangays as part of Taguig City.

Meanwhile, COMELEC Spokesperson John Rex Laudiangco said the poll body will be printing 228,149 ballots for the 10 barangays that will be used in the upcoming Barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan Elections (BSKE) this October.
