Presidential Communications Office Secretary Martin Andanar said President Rodrigo Duterte is set to issue an executive order to implement the proposed FOI (Freedom of Information) law.
“This week po abangan niyo po ang aming draft po at sana—hinahabol po namin ang draft po ng executive order para po sa Freedom of Information at i-a-anunsyo po namin iyan,” Andanar said.
On May, President Duterte said he will prioritize the FOI bill if elected as President “Kung ayaw ng Congress, I will start progressively, para walang satsat, yakyak. (If Congress does not want to pass it, I will start progressively so that we don’t talk too much”. he said on May.
“Unahan ko na. I will issue an executive order. All. Hindi na kailangan ng batas,” he added.
