3 agencies to localize work of federalism task force in Davao
By Manuel Cayon - May 2, 2019


DAVAO CITY—Three national government agencies are currently working together here to lay down the ground work for a federal setup drafted by the Constitutional Consultative Committee led by former Supreme Court Chief Justice Reynato S. Puno, with local advocates already looking at some barangays as “federal-ready.”

Local federal advocates here said the Mindanao Development Authority (MinDA), Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) and the Mindanao unit of the National Anti-Poverty Commission (NAPC) are cooperating to localize the task of the interagency task force for the purpose.

To be localized is the Bayanihan Federalism draft of the committee, which would be consulted with the bureaucracy, the localities in the country, as well as the other federal advocate groups such as the Kilos Pederal sa Pagbabago (KPP), led by Davao lawyer Aristeo Albay and Partido Demokratiko ng Pilipinas (PDP), the party of President Duterte.
