Dalawang linggo bago matapos ang kampanya, pinaalalahanan ng Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) ang mga nakaupong alkalde ng mga lungsod at bayan na maging patas sa pagbibigay ng permit para sa mga political rally para sa eleksyon ngayong taon.
"Lumaban kayo nang patas. Huwag nating ipagkait sa mga botante ang pagkakataong lubos na makilala ang kanilang mga kandidato na makatutulong sa kanilang pagpapasya kung sino ang iboboto," ani DILG Secretary Eduardo M. Año matapos ang pahayag ni Pangulong Rodrigo Duterte na ilan sa mga pinuno ng lokal na pamahalaan ay hindi nagbibigay ng pahintulot na makapaglunsad ng policital rallies ang kanilang katunggali.
We thank the Ombudsman, Justice Samuel R. Martires, for acting with dispatch on the complaint filed by the DILG against local government officials of Malay, Aklan for the environmental degradation and mismanagement of Boracay Island.
Let this serve as a warning to all local officials that the DILG under the leadership of Secretary Eduardo M. Año will not tolerate abuse and misconduct especially in relation to environmental negligence.
We hope that local officials will not wait for the DILG to file cases against them just like what happened in Boracay, but will take proactive steps to follow the law and protect and preserve the environment in their respective localities.
With only two weeks left before the campaign period wraps up, the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) reminds incumbent city and municipal mayors “to play fair” in issuing permits to conduct political rallies for the 2019 midterm election period.
“Play a fair game. Let us not deprive voters the chance to get to know their candidates to help them decide whom to vote for,” says DILG Secretary Eduardo M. Año, following President Rodrigo Duterte’s remark that some local officials are refusing to grant permits for political rallies to their opponents. “Kung gusto kayo ng tao, iboboto nila kayo ulit. So let’s not resort to shenanigans and just...
