Barangay Legislatures of Nangka - The Confederal Barangay Councils

Mga Konfederal na Konsehong Barangay ng Nangka
Nangka's Confederal Barangay Councils

Function

The sixteen individual barangays are the smallest organizational and political unit in Nangka. Theoretically, Nangka is a confederated union of the sixteen independent barangays, who have banded together for the purposes of mutual aid. As such, these independent political units require a council to govern them, which is why the Barangay Councils were formed just after Nangkan independence. These Barangay Councils act as both the executive and legislative branch of the barangay. They are responsible for the passage of ordinances and policies that help the betterment of the barangay.

The districts of each barangay are apportioned by the independent body known as the Barangay District Commission (BDC). The BDC divides each barangay's constituent district nearly evenly at around 5,000 people per district, with around 500 people per representative in the Barangay Council, rounded up to the nearest hundred.

Furthermore, similar to both houses of the national congress, an additional 10% of seats are added to each Barangay Council which are reserved for party-list representatives. Party-lists are officially designated groups within Nangka verified by the BDC. These range from ethnic and ethnoreligious minorities, such as the approximately 40,000 - 50,000 people who identify as both Nangkaño and Filipino, and Nangka's immigrant Muslim, Hindu, and Buddhist minorities, to trade syndicates and unions such as the approximately ten trade unions that the Trade Union Congress of Nangka regularly sends out. Several political parties have also been known to run as party-lists, disqualifying them from being able to run in regular district elections.

The one main difference between the party-list representatives of Barangay Councils with national party-list representatives is that they do not join the government or the opposition, and are always considered to be crossbenchers, being able to vote whichever way they wish. The rationale behind this is so that the barangay party-list councillors will always be directed to vote based on the desires of their constituents and not based on the desires of a government or opposition bloc.
