MANILA, Philippines — Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque announced on Monday that President Rodrigo Duterte is likely to sign the executive order (EO) on contractualization before Labor Day or May 1 as this remains a priority of the Duterte administration.
“The president wants it as soon as possible. We all know that Labor Day is May 1 so I would think that it will come out on or before May 1,” Roque said.
However, Malacañang couldn’t confirm whether or not the President met with the labor groups today which was also reportedly canceled. — UNTV News & Rescue

MANILA, Philippines – President Rodrigo Duterte has banned government officials and employees from travel junkets and team-building activities outside of the country.
Section 19 of the Executive Order No. 77 signed on March 15 states that: “All forms of travel junkets shall be strictly prohibited. The conduct of strategic planning workshops or team building activities abroad shall not be allowed.”
The order was released to the members of the press on Friday (March 22).
The President also emphasized in the EO that “the taking of a personal leave immediately before or after the official activity is highly discouraged” and “if travel circumstances, such as the nature of activity, purpose and itinerary, indicate that the trip is mainly intended for personal purposes, no part thereof shall be considered official.”
The order also required all Cabinet secretaries, chairpersons and board members of Government-Owned and Controlled Corporations (GOCC), and heads of national government agencies to get the President’s approval for their official travels abroad. – Marje Pelayo

President Rodrigo Duterte denies the involvement of Bacolod Mayor Evelio Leonardia in illegal drugs.
A video was posted on the president’s Facebook page, where he reiterated his support for Leonardia and his candidacy.
He also called out former Bacolod Mayor Monico Puentevella to stop splicing videos just to discredit Leonardia.
“But I want to tell mga taga Bacolod, wala akong sinabi about diyan. But kung tanuning ninyo kung sino para sa akin, I do not want a guy na making a fraud sa lahat ng sinasabi ko, (I did not say anything about the matter. But if you are going to ask me, I do not want a guy making a fraud out of everything I say.)” the president said.—Aileen Cerrudo
Based on Executive Order (EO) no. 76, signed on March 15, the Department of Budget and Management (DBM) is tasked to identify funding source from the 2018 reenacted budget.
“There is a need to identify an appropriate funding source to cover the requirements for the implementation of the fourth tranche compensation adjustment for civilian government personnel scheduled in 2019 under EO No. 201,” according to the EO
The DBM previously recommended the amendment of EO no. 201 in order to provide the salary hike for government workers.
EO no. 201, signed by former president Benigno Aquino, has scheduled the implementation of the fourth tranche salary hike by January this year. —Aileen Cerrudo (with reports from Rosalie Coz)
