‘TIME TO MOVE ON’ | DILG to LGUs: Ensure smooth transition of power
May 16, 2019 , 01:12 PM

MAY 16, 2019 — The Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) urged local government units to facilitate the smooth and orderly transition of responsibilities to the newly-elected officials following the midterm polls.

DILG Secretary Eduardo M. Año said winners and losers in the recent polls should take the higher ground and let go of political grudges for the sake of the people whom they have sworn to serve.

“The Filipino people have spoken and now is the time to move on. A greater agenda awaits and that is the task of nation-building. Kaya magkaisa na tayong lahat at magtulong-tulong para sa kapakanan ng ating mga lokalidad,” Año said in a statement.

The DILG has earlier issued Memorandum Circular No. 2019-39 which requires the creation of Local Governance Transition Teams to be chaired by the local chief executive, while the vice chairman will be elected among members by simple majority vote.

The tasks of the transition team include conduct of an inventory of LGU properties, securing of all official documents and records of LGU transactions, and briefing on the key challenges for the incoming set of officials for a seamless leadership and management transition.

The DILG Chief also says the Department through the Local Government Academy (LGA) is ready to train the newly-elected and reelected local officials through its Newly-Elected Officials (NEO) program to enable them to effectively discharge their duties and responsibilities and define their development roadmaps.
