• Drugs, La Niña tackled in 2nd Cabinet meet


    President Rodrigo Duterte presided over his second official meeting with his Cabinet secretaries on Monday.

    Martin Andanar, head of the Presidential Communications Office, said the meeting focused on the administration’s anti-drug crusade and preparations for La Niña.

    The agenda of the meeting was “agriculture, drugs, and NDRRMC,” Andanar said, referring to the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council. He did not give additional details.

    Photos released by Andanar’s office showed Duterte with Vice President Leni Robredo before the start of the meeting.

    It was the first time that Robredo joined a Cabinet meeting. She was appointed as head of the Housing and Urban Development Coordinating Council (HUDCC) last week.

    The HUDCC coordinates government policy on housing and development. The Home Development Mutual Fund (Pag-IBIG Fund), Home Guaranty Corp., Housing and Land Use Regulatory Board, National Housing Authority, National Home Mortgage Finance Corp., and Social Housing Finance Corp. are attached agencies of the HUDCC.
