Bato dela Rosa hopes budget impasse will be resolved ASAP: Kailangan ng PNP ng pondo
By Marie P.Ruiz
Administration Senatorial Candidate Ronald “ Bato” de la Rosa expressed hope that the 2019 national budget will be passed soon so that funds for the security preparations of the Philippine National Police (PNP) for the Mid- Term Elections this coming May will no longer be delayed.
The PNP has identified 941 election hotspots.
Bato, who was former chief of the PNP, said “Sana ay magkasundo na ang Senate at House sa budget para mapirmahan agad ni Pangulong Duterte at mailabas na ang pondo na kailangan ng PNP upang lalo mapabuti ang paghahanda sa darating na eleksyon.”
The 2019 budget includes funds for the National Police’s Maintenance and Operating Expenses to improve its delivery of services.
There is also an allocation for the construction of Emergency 911 Command Center which will serve as the PNP’s coordinating center for emergency response and operations.
