Manila — The official palace spokesperson is giving an advance information on what news developments everybody can look up to this week.
One that interest all and sundry is the landmark decision from the United Nations Arbitration decision on the West Philippine Sea which is up for release on Tuesday, July 12.
Presidential Communications Secretary Martin Andanar said, “Let us wait for the decision and the Solicitor General will study this, then that’s the time we shall explore our next move.”
Another one coming out is presidential executive order on the Freedom of Information (FOI).
“At hindi lang po ‘yan, meron pa pong mga ibang mga announcements na dapat po nating abangan next week, tulad po ng pagpirma ng ating Pangulo ng Freedom of Information executive order at ‘yung mga ibang announcement pa po ng iba’t ibang departamento sa Executive branch (it’s not only that, there are also other announcements that we can look forward to like the President’s signing of the EO on Freedom of Information and other announcements from various departments in the Executive branch),” he said.
Regarding the proposed meeting of the President with Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF) leader Nur Misuari in Jolo, Sulu, Andanar indicated that the President has yet to set an exact date for the talks.
Just as the talks with the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) and the National Democratic Front (NDF), the MNLF meet would indeed take place, Andanar assured the public.
On the issue of DU30 vehicle plates, Andanar said “the President has always been for equality, fairness and justice. If you know of any of these violators, please inform the PCO and I will make sure that the President will find out.”
