Taob silang lahat! QC barangay named ‘Best Lupon’ in NCR


The Quezon City Council has passed a resolution commending Barangay San Bartolome for being adjudged the “Best Lupon ng Tagapamayapa (Peace Council)” in the National Capital Region (NCR).

City Resolution 6988-2017, introduced by Councilors Franz Pumaren and Godofredo Liban II, congratulates Barangay San Bartolome and its chairman Lamberto Pascual for the achievement.

The Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) gave the recognition the QC village as the best Peace Council.

The barangay represented Metro Manila in the national level of the Lupon Tagapamayapa Incentive Awards (LTIA) where it placed second in the nationwide search.

Then-Interior Secretary Ismael Sueno together with DILG-NCR Regional Director Maria Lourdes Agustin, and Assistant Regional Director Juan Jovian Ingeniero handed over the award to the lupon members of San Bartolome.

The LTIA is an annual award established pursuant to Section 406(b) of the Local Government Code of 1991 and Executive Order No. 394, s. 1997.

This is in recognition of the Lupon Tagapamayapa’s contribution in the promotion of the Katarungang Pambarangay objectives. It is meant to strengthen it as an indigenous mediation structure capable of resolving disputes within a community.

It aims to institutionalize a system of granting economic benefits and other incentives to Lupong Tagapamayapa for reasons of exemplary performance.
