The passing of the consolidated SK reform bills into RA 10742 in 2015 is a product of the collective effort of the youth in advancing genuine politics of change. It was born out of the criticisms how SK was transmogrified as breeding grounds for next generations of “trapo”. For the past years, SK has been plagued with issues of corruption, incompetence and inefficiency. With that, Kabataan Partylist is one of those who has vigorously campaigned and filed house bills for necessary reforms in the SK. However, critique on the approved SK reform law is still at hand as it lacks clear provisions for its landmark reforms – the confusing age-bracket that has caused number of aspiring youth be disqualified for SK, the anti-political dynasty provision that sets minimal restrictions making it easy to be circumvented and the lack in its provision on filing up vacancies.
