The Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) has directed all local government units (LGUs) to clear all government facilities, properties, and vehicles of political campaign materials.

“We will not allow candidates to use government properties as a platform for their election campaign. It’s clearly prohibited. Government buildings, properties, vehicles, and equipment are for official use only and may not be used as venues or tools for partisan political activity,” says DILG Secretary Eduardo M. Año.


Ninety-five local government units (LGUs) or 53 percent of the 178 LGUs from Metro Manila, Regions III and IV-A within the Manila Bay Watershed Area have failed in complying with environmental laws, according to an assessment conducted by the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG).

DILG Secretary Eduardo Año says that based on the 2018 Regional Inter-Agency Committee table assessments and on-site inspections, these LGUs failed to hit the indicators gauging their compliance to existing environmental laws and 16 of these with the worst problems will be prioritized by the Department.


To ensure the commitment of mayors to the “Battle of Manila Bay”, the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) will convene on Monday (February 11, 2019) the 178 city and municipal mayors within the Manila Bay Watershed Area for the Local Chief Executives’ Forum on the Manila Bay Clean-up, Rehabilitation, and Preservation Program at the New World Manila Bay Hotel in Manila.

DILG Secretary Eduardo M. Año says the forum aims to keep the local chief executives abreast on their critical roles and responsibilities in the rehabilitation of Manila Bay under the Supreme Court Mandamus.
