The barangay system is what makes the Philippines, the community oriented country of the world. The core LGU (Local Government Unit) of the Philippines is the barangay. Each barangay has its Chairman (captain) and council who are elected into office every three years by popular vote of the community registered voters.

  • As of April 12, 2012 according to the NSCB (National Statistical Coordination Board), there are 42,027 Barangays in the Philippines.
