LINGAYEN, Pangasinan – The lead convenor of Kilusang Pagbabago assailed KP members soliciting favors from persons for appointment in barangay positions. 
“We condemn all KP members soliciting favors for barangay appointment,  said Cris Lopez during KP oath-taking here Monday.
Lopez, the Pangasinan KP lead convenor of the Kilusang Pagbababago-Lead Organization Inc. said the group has no mandate or authority to appoint barangay officials.
A Kilusang Pagbabago (Movement for Change) statement said it is a “people’s movement for true change towards a peaceful, safe, developed and progressive society in a federal republic of the Philippines.”
Lopez said there are individuals going around the province and in northern Luzon claiming they could facilitate appointments for barangay positions. 
Said individuals are reportedly collecting facilitation fee based on position.
 It was gathered that prices range from P300 to thousands of pesos/
 “Aside from fees collected. it has reached our attention that some individuals are using the Kilusang Pagbabago saying that they must be members of KP to be appointed as OIC barangay officials,” Lopez said.
“There is no truth to this as these individuals are out to sow false hopes and destroy the organization.”
Earlier, President Duterte called for postponement of barangay elections this October.
On June 8, the national leadership of Kilusang Pagbabago issued a warning.
The warning urged the public to beware of people who collect money supposedly for KP. “We are not collecting any amount from members or from the public. If you come across such people, please get his or her name, take a picture, and report the incident to our KP Hotline: (0995) 619 1171.” 
In Lingayen, more than 600 people took their oath as KP members at the Narciso Ramos Gym on June 5.
