I’ll try to fix you: Duterte to get permits for bizmen if 3-day rule fails
President Rodrigo Duterte will be the one to get permits for businessmen if concerned government offices fail to act on their applications within three days.
In a speech Thursday (January 11), Duterte acknowledged the difficulties ordinary people experience when applying for business permits.
“If your permit goes beyond three days on any table there, just call me and I will get it for you for free. Kung meron kang problema dito sa department na ito, tawagan mo lang ako,” he said during an event of the Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation (PAGCOR).
Duterte said he will give businessmen their papers whether their applications are approved or not.
Even though the President only has supervisory powers over local politikos, he said they are not exempt from following the three-day rule.
“That statement binds all, even the locals. Kasi ditong sa ano, government ‘pag — on my Executive department, sa mga Cabinet members, may power is supervision and control,” Duterte said.
