MAY TIWALA SI DIGONG KAY TUGADE

SOBRANG halata naman ang birada ng ilang mga taga-oposisyon dahil gusto nilang ibuhos lahat kay Transportation Secretary Arthur Tugade ang sisi sa sunod-sunod na mga aberyang nangyayari sa Metro Rail Transit (MRT-3).

Kamakailan ay nanawagan pa nga sina party-list Reps. Gary Alejano ng Magdalo at Ariel Casilao of Anakpawis kay Pangulong Digong na sibakin na si Tugade dahil daw sa palpak na operasyon ng MRT-3 at kabiguan niyang lutasin ang mga problema nito.

Pero binara lang sila ni Digong sa kanilang panawagan ng sabihin niya na hindi niya sisibakin si Tugade dahil buo ang tiwala nito sa kalihim.

ARAL SA ASEAN SUMMIT

IDINEKLARA ni acting Interior Secretary Catalino Cuy na tagumpay ang ginanap na Asean Summit sa bansa.

Sa paningin ni Cuy ay matagumpay ang nasabing summit dahil sa pangkalahatan ay naging mapayapa ito, lalo pa kung iisipin na katatapos pa lang ng gulo sa Marawi City nang ganapin ito. 

Nagpapakita rin ang pangyayari na malayo na ang nararating natin bilang bansa pagdating sa pangangalaga ng seguridad sa mga bumibisitang foreign dignitaries.

Kunsabagay ay ilang beses na rin napatunayan ng ating mga awtoridad ang kakayanan nila na pangalagaan ang ating mga bisita, katulad na lang noong dumalaw dito si Pope Francis…

ASEAN’S RIGHTFUL GLOBAL SPOT
Editorial cartoon by Ed Rompal

Manila is host to the ASEAN Summit.

Now on its 50th year, President Duterte has seen profound parallelism between the ASEAN hosting and his leadership agenda.

The ASEAN Summit theme, “Partnering for Change, Engaging the World”, has significance to the Duterte campaign catchphrase “Change is Coming’ as he looks at his 16 million supporters as “Partners for Change”.

The theme was decided on in last year’s ASEAN meetings in Vientiane, Laos, where the President also accepted chairmanship for this year’s summit.

With this, Duterte embarked on trips to member-nations of ASEAN, a 10-country group of Asian…

A STEP IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION
Editorial cartoon by Ed Rompal

NEWLY minted Bureau of Customs Commissioner Isidro Lapeña is doing a great job. 

What his predecessors had failed to address, he is now doing something to correct the situation and more.

We refer here to the wide discrepancy between China’s recorded exports and imports to the Philippines, which clearly has been going on for the longest time. 

Lapeña realized that the main reason for the said discrepancy is the illegal practice of gross misdeclaration or undervaluation of goods in terms of either volume or weight. 

In short, the government is losing hundreds of…

URBAN WARFARE TRAINING
Editorial cartoon by Ed Rompal

So, the fighting in Marawi has not really stopped even as President Duterte has declared the liberation of the war-torn Islamic City.

Last week, Australian Defense Minister Marise Payne committed to send small contingents of Australian soldiers to train Philippine troops in defending themselves against terrorist threats.

Although Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana admitted that our local forces need to work with experienced Australian troops on strategic fighting the foreign soldiers will not be part of the actual battle should attacks occur.

Dubbing the partnership as “a practical training”, this includes a range of urbn combat skills,…
