• Fight vs illegal drugs tops agenda on 1st Barangay Assembly Day


    The campaign against illegal drugs will be the top agenda of the villages during the first Barangay Assembly Day to be held under the Duterte Administration on Sunday, October 9. Interior and Local Government Secretary Ismael Sueno said since the campaign is one of the top priorities of President Rodrigo Duterte, barangay officials should discuss with their constituents how they can help in eradicating this pervasive social menace. Sueno directed 42,036 village chairmen to discuss their compliance with national laws and issuances such as revitalization of the Barangay Anti-Drug Abuse Council (Badac) and their roles in drug clearing operations. He added they must declare during that day substantial appropriation from their annual budget for anti-illegal drugs programs, projects and activities in accordance with the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002 or Republic Act 9165.” The assembly has the theme Para sa Isang Tunay na Pagbabago, Mag-MASID at Makiisa sa Isang Maka-MASAng Asembleya.
