In general, this Office is of the considered view that elected barangay officials are considered as government service on the basis that: (1) the position is created by law (Chapter II, Section 387 of the LGC); (2) they perform government function; (3) barangay officials are considered persons in authority; and (4) they earn leave privileges under Article 172, Rule XII, Rules and Regulations Implementing the LGC of 1991.

As regard your query on whether Barangay Officials are eligible to secure license in cockfighting, this Office opines in the negative. PD 1602 “condemns the existence of illegal gambling activities as this has become an influential factor in an individual’s disregard for the value of dignified work, perseverance and thrift since instant monetary gains from it are being equated to success, thereby becoming a widespread social menace and a source of corruption.” Thus, government officials are prohibited by law to engage in any form of illegal gambling.”

PD 1602 enumerated the Philippine Gambling law, which includes PD 449 (Cockfighting).

The liability, therefore, of a government official/employee engage in illegal gambling is both criminal and administrative.

Please be guided accordingly.
