PRIVILEGE SPEECH OF DEPUTY SPEAKER PABLO JOHN GARCIA
By: Sugbo TV | Wednesday, March 11, 2020

Privilege Speech of Deputy Speaker Pablo John Garcia on memorandum circulars issued by the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) to local government units nationwide tasking them to clear all public roads and banning of tricycles and pedicabs from operating in national highways and threatening them with administrative cases should they fail to comply.

Garcia, who represents the third district of Cebu in Congress, questioned DILG’s legal basis ordering LGUs to implement a national policy for local officials to blindly follow, which undermines the essence of local autonomy.
