Pulitika ugat ng ‘non-release’ ng P160-B ‘FLR’ funds — Drilon

Manila, Philippines — Iginiit na posibleng pulitiko at darating na eleksyon ang nasa likod ng ‘non-release’ ng nasa P160 bilyong “For Later Release (FLR)’ na nakalaan para sa social amelioration at economic stimulus projects sa gitna ng pandemya, ayon kay Senator Franklin Drilon.

“With the 2022 election less than 10 months away, politics is a consideration in the non-release of the P160 billion FLR budget items,” lahad ni Drilon.

“This is lamentable because these funds are needed by our people who need assistance due to the pandemic.  Government projects and programs designed to stimulate and expand the economy are not being implemented.”

Tinanong din ni Drilon ang gobyerno kung bakit bigo itong gamitin ang P160 bilyong FLR funds.

“Clearly, the priorities in the release of the funds are flawed.”

“Note that 20 percent of the country’s GDP (gross domestic product) is attributable to government spending. The execution of laws, which includes the release of funds in the budget, is a prerogative of the President under the Constitution,” dagdag pa nito. RNT/FGDC
