MANILA, Philippines – Tinuring ni Albay Rep Joey Salceda na “vital move” para sa skills development, youth employment at  learning ang pagsasabatas ni Pangulong Rodrigo Duterte sa Republic Act No. 11768 o Sangguniang Kabataan (SK) Governance Reforms and Compensation Law.

Kasabay nito ay nagpasalamat si Salceda kay Pangulong Duterte sa paglagda sa panukala noong Mayo 6, 2022  subalit ngayon lamang naisapubliko.

“I thank President Duterte for signing this landmark measure, which is a gift to the next administration. The law will provide the SK with a framework for reimagining the role of youth governance in skills development, youth employment, and learning,” ani Salceda.

Ayon kay Salceda may malaking ambag ang SK para matutukan ang programa para sa mga kabataan pangunahin na sa  skills trainings, on-the-job training,  livelihood assistance, educational assistance at iba pang productive programs.

“We are also expanding their role by institutionalizing youth governance in the LGU level, and having SK Representatives for Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao in the National Youth Commission,” dagdag niya.

Sinabi ni Salceda na siyang may akda ng nasabing batas, na sa pamamagitan ng nasabing batas ay lalawak ang responsibilidad at mas magiging accountable ang SK kasabay nito ay itataas din ang kanilang sahod.

“The SK is no longer the broken institution it used to be known as. It is improving, after the SK Reform Act, which makes it the only institution in the country where political dynasties are banned by law,” paliwanag pa ng mambabatas.

Nabatid na 19% ng populasyon ng bansa ay may edad 15 hanggang 30 anyos na syang labor force ng bansa kaya mahalaga ang papel nito para sa economic recovery.

“We can’t have them unrepresented in governance.That’s why a functioning, professional SK is critical. The next administration will benefit immensely from a working SK,” pagtatapos pa ni Salceda. Gail Mendoza
