Southern Leyte PPOC membership reconstituted

By Erna S. Gorne

Southern Leyte (November 27) -- In consonance with Executive Order No. 739 as directed by no less than President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, the membership of the Provincial Peace and Order Council (PPOC) here has been reconstituted.

However, the new composition shall take effect on January 2009 yet, this was learned during the PPOC meeting held at the Provincial Governor's Office today, Wednesday, November 26.

The reorganized Peace and Order Council composed of the following representatives : Governor as Chairman and the Vice Governor as Vice Chairman, a representative of the Sangguniang Panlalawigan, three representatives of the private sector, namely, from the business sector, academe and religious sector, Philippine Information Agency, Philippine Army, Philippine National Police, National Police Commission, Department of Justice and Coast Guard. The Department of Interior and Local Government has been designated as the head of the Secretariat.

The executive order states that if the Philippines is to become a first world country, it must put a stop to the ideological nonsense of the Communist rebels and their criminal acts once and for all. Hence, the creation of an office in the provinces has been recommended to focus on convergence and the orchestration of internal security operations (ISO) efforts of civil authorities and agencies, military and police.

The order further states that imposition of sanctions has been recommended against local chief executives who are giving material and political support to the Communist rebels.

And the provision of livelihood and infrastructure development programs and projects in the remote rural and indigenous population areas has been adopted to isolate them from the Communist rebels and ideological, political and organization works. (PIA Southern Leyte/esg) [top]
