THE plans and programs of the city government of Manila at least for the next few years are now in place for proper implementation.
This assurance was given by Mayor Honey Lacuna, as she announced and expressed gratitude for the success of the recently-concluded Executive-Legislative Agenda (ELA) conference attended by those comprising the Manila local government’s executive and legislative branches.
Along with them, Lacuna also thanked the city government’s partners in the seminar led by the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG).
“Every new administration, dapat me seminar…ang buong pamahalaang- lungsod ng Maynila ay dumalo sa executive and legislative agenda seminar where the executive branch and legislative branch of the city, Vice Mayor Yul Servo and the city councilors at department heads ay nagsama-sama para pag-usapan kung saang direction dadalhin ang lungsod,” Lacuna explained.
The lady mayor said in the gathering of the city officials, they talked about all the programs and projects that they wish to implement in the coming years and how these plans can get done properly and efficiently.
According to Lacuna, the thrust of her stewardship is sustainability of the ongoing projects and emphasis on health and social services.
The ELA is a unifying document corresponding to the term of local elective officials that is developed and mutually agreed upon by both executive and legislative departments of the local government.
It is an important gathering in that its aim is to harmonize the legislative agenda with the mayor’s executive agenda and that the priority thrusts included in the ELA are considered in the budget of the local government units.
The ELA is formulated within the first 100-days of assumption of the new set of local officials.
