Awards, civil service eligibility conferment await local lawmakers

CATBALOGAN CITY, Samar, Jan 20 (PIA) -- To entice councilors to work better and carry on their commitment to public service, the Philippine Councilors’ League (PCL) is launching the search for the 10 Most Outstanding Councilors of the Philippines, said PCL president Alma Moreno-Salic and PCL chair Alan Zulueta during the PCL Convention in Samar.

Winners will get P1-million-worth of projects at the end of their term from Senator Edgardo Angara, a supporter of the search.

Zulueta said that an added benefit and incentive to the local lawmakers in the Sangguniang Panglunsod and Panlalawigan the Civil Service Commission will give them the appropriate civil service eligibility, based on the law approved by President Benigno Aquino on December 20, 2011.

Meanwhile PCL president in Samar Roger Casurao said that a city or municipal councilor and a provincial board member may be conferred with a CS eligibility if he has served some nine years or three terms and if he has finished college degree.

If a lawmaker has only served some six years in office, the CSC can confer him the Sub-Professional Eligibility, as long as he has obtained at least 72 units of any college course.

Zulueta said that the same conferment has a retro-active effect although it is not necessarily automatic as the lawmaker concerned has yet to observe the process of submitting the service record, transcript of record, and other credentials.

Casurao said that the PCL has institutionalized the Legislative Academy wherein of the 156 members, 19 have masters degrees while the rest are pursuing masters and baccalaureate degrees. (PIA 8-Samar with GDR)
