About 10 years later, the settlement was transferred to the lowland and renamed to Badiang.In 1860, the first attempt was made to convert the barrio into a municipality but the provincial government of Capiz refused. Because of this refusal, the town leaders petitioned the governor of Iloilo, Governor Jose Maria Carles, who approved the petition. On July 1, 1862, the new pueblo was inaugurated and renamed to Carles, in honor to the governor. First Gobernadorcillo was Alenjandro Buaya.In 1904, the town lost its status and became a barrio of Balasan. 16 years later however, on January 1, 1920, it was restored as an independent municipality, with Federico A. Ramos as the first Municipal President.
