PIA Press Release

RDR lauds Ombudsman, DILG

By Mai Gevera

Davao City (23 January) -- After a series of suspensions acted upon local government executives with pending administrative cases, Presidential Adviser for New Government Centers Rodolfo del Rosario takes it as a laudable move of the Office of the Ombudsman and the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG).

"The Ombudsman and the DILG are the only protection of the public against errant elected and appointed officials." He said.

With DILG now very active in implementing the policy, it is but natural to see opposing reactions especially from the local executives who have not been used to a strict implementation of the law.

Del Rosario claimed that what the country lacks for further development is the discipline that should be planted in every public servant.

"Before, the government seemed to be very lenient in following the law." This he said further pushed for the propagation of corruption in the government sector.

Now that President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo insisted in the punishment of public servants who have committed administrative violations, more and more local executives have become wary in practicing corruption in the government.

The cabinet member stressed that it is not about politics as what the opposition has been claiming, rather a brave move starting from the President down to the local government giving back to the people what they deserve to be getting.

Del Rosario bared significant milestones that happened during the administration of PGMA. He said that it is only this time that the peso has regained its strength which only shows that the administration's policies are doing the country good.

The secretary, believed to be running for a local position, urged concerned government agencies like the DILG and the Ombudsman to be more aggressive in implementing the law as it would positively contribute to the development of the Philippines. (PIA XI/Mai Gevera) [top]
