BAGUIO CITY: Reelected Mayor Benjamin Magalong on Thursday said the Summer Capital's officials and residents should be in full support of the Baguio City Charter that was recently signed into law by outgoing President Rodrigo Duterte.
He said no charter or system is perfect, but this year's Baguio Charter as compared to the 1909 original, is more responsive to the need and call of the times.
"Since the charter is already a law, we should all might as well give it our full support. Besides, it is already a law," the mayor noted.
He advised those opposing the approved charter to also try opening their eyes and instead help in fixing it via Implementing Rules and Regulations (IRR) that is currently being studied by city managers.
"It is through the IRR that we can cure whatever we believe that the Charter is lacking or need to be corrected," Magalong explained.
