Who will succeed the Punong Barangay? In case of death, removal from office, physical incapacity or fails to qualify.

 

I read this post by DZMM Teleradyo, to wit:

kapapanalo pa lamang na kapitan sa Brgy.Duhatan Balayan sa Batangas
na si Barangay Kapitan Jingo Sherwin Barros, patay sa pamamaril kaninang
hapon, kasamahan nito, sugatan

 

In case a Barangay Captain or Barangay Chairman dies, permanently incapacitated
or removed from office. Who will be the next Barangay Kapitan?

 

Who will succeed the Punong Barangay or Barangay Captain in case of his/her death?

 

The highest sangguniang barangay member or in case of his permanent inability,
the second highest ranking sangguniang barangay member shall become the
Punong Barangay/Barangay Captain.

 

The second placer in the election for Punong Barangay will not be the new or
will not succeed as the new Punong Barangay.

Who will succeed the Punong Barangay? In case of Death

How about if the Punong Barangay elect died before taking his oath and
assume the functions of his office?

 

The same. If a permanent vacancy occurs in the office of the punong barangay,
the highest ranking sangguniang barangay member or in case of his
permanent inability, the second highest ranking sangguniang member shall
become the punong barangay.

 

The successors shall serve only the unexpired terms of their predecessors.

 

A permanent vacancy arises when an elective local official fills a higher
vacant office, refuses to assume office, fails to qualify, dies, is
removed from office, voluntarily resigns, or otherwise permanently incapacitated
to discharge the functions of his office.

 

By reason of his death, the elected Punong Barangay can no longer assume
and take his oath of office. His failure to assume and take his oath of office
will results to his failure to qualify to the office of punong barangay.

 

Since there is failure to qualify on his part, this would thereafter render
his position permanently vacant and there being a permanent vacancy in the office
of punong barangay, the rule on succession as provided by section 44(b) of the
local government code is applicable.

 

Based on the provision, in case of permanent vacancy in the office of the
punong barangay, the highest ranking sangguniang member or in case of his
permanent inabilty, the 2nd highest ranking sangguniang barangay member shall
become the punong barangay.

 

The 7th place vacancy in the sangguniang barangay shall be filled by appointment
to be issued by the Mayor.
