0 132

Caloocan Councilor PJ Malonzo is dismayed over the city council’s failure to tackle the Freedom of Information (FOI) ordinance he filed.

In a recent visit to a community in Caloocan, Malonzo said a hearing has never been held on the ordinance since he filed it in 2020.

“Sinusulong po natin ang Transparency para sa Accountability at Good Governance ng Pamahalaan ng Caloocan City. Kaya nag file po tayo ng Freedom of Information Ordinance, noong 2020, kaso nakakalungkot dahil hanggang ngayon ay hindi pa eto nadidinig sa Konseho,” he said.

Malonzo is running for vice mayor with Caloocan Rep. Egay Erice under the Aksyon Demokratiko party.

They’re running against Caloocan Rep. Along Malapitan and Councilor Karina Teh, who are allied with presidential aspirant Ferdinand Marcos Jr.
