Magna Carta sa mga Barangay isinulong

0 201

IGINIIT ni Sen. Aquilino ‘Koko’ Pimentel III na kailangan nang maipatupad ang Magna Carta for Barangays na matagal na niyang isinusulong para madagdagan ang suweldo ng mga lider sa barangay, ma-regular sila bilang empleyado ng gobyerno at magkaroon ng bahagi sa pambansang buwis.

“The barangay is the most basic and most important unit in our political system. Let’s reward and re­cognize our barangay leaders nationwide for their daily hard work through assured benefits provided by law,” ani Pimentel sabay diin na may anim na benepisyong makukuha ang mga barangay sa kanyang Senate Bill 2148 o ang Magna Carta for Barangays.

“If implemented, it would be game changers in the field of local governance,” ani Pimentel. “They’re long overdue. The legislated benefits are classifying barangay officials as regular government employees with fixed salaries, allowances, insu­rance and other essential and fringe benefits; regular supply of basic necessities such as public transport, barangay halls and health centers; automatic release of fund shares from national taxe­s; easy transfer of funds for maintenance of roads; mandatory share in taxes within its jurisdiction; and employment priority for residents in projects within the barangay.”

“DILG Secretary Eduardo Año fully supports the measure. In fact, under our bill, the department plays a big role in ensuring that these benefits are fully implemented,” dagdag ni Pimentel.

Iginiit din ni Pimentel na kailangang mabigyang prioridad ang kanyang panukala dahil ang barangay ay muhon ng mabuting pamamahala at kaila­ngan nito ang pondo para sa pagbabago.
