Isang buwan ka lang! Duterte to suspend local politikos delaying biz permits’ release

Nov 12, 2017 @ 10:04

President Rodrigo Duterte has threatened to suspend local politikos and government officials who delay the processing of business permits.

Duterte on Sunday (November 12) said Cabinet officials are only given a month to either approve or reject papers.

“Eh kung one month na nga ang Cabinet eh, lahat ng papeles nasa kanila, why can’t a new business venture go ahead with the least worry of the routine business permit?” he asked.

“Kapag nakita ko na pinapahirapan ninyo or you allow corruption to thrive in your locality, then as mayor or governor, I will order the new Secretary of the DILG, ‘yung chief of staff, si General Año, to investigate you in just about — I’ll give you about three days to explain,” he added.

Duterte said he will suspend local politikos or other officials if he is not satisfied with their explanation and he sees a deliberate intent to delay the processing of business permits.

He said he wants to improve the ease of doing business in the Philippines.
