PBBM: Gov’t will be more responsive to people’s needs under ‘Bagong Pilipinas’

MANILA -- Underscoring important role of the government to attain national development, President Ferdinand R. Marcos Jr. vowed to make the government more responsive to people’s needs, and urged government officials and personnel to help his administration carry out the much needed bureaucratic reforms.

“For this I pledge, government will neither ask the people for sacrifices it will not exact first upon itself, nor impose a burden that is heavier than what people can carry,” President Ferdinand R. Marcos Jr. during Sunday’s kickoff rally for the Bagong Pilipinas campaign at the Quirino Grandstand in Manila.

“Sa Bagong Pilipinas, ang pagbabago ay nagsisimula sa pamahalaan. While power emanates from the people, change must begin from the government. Kaya naman, ito ang aking mga mahigpit na tagubilin sa mga kawani ng gobyerno,” Marcos said.

Laziness is prohibited among government workers, Marcos said, stressing services must be fast, projects must be completed on time, deadlines must be met per schedule, and distress calls must be responded quickly.

Red tape should be replaced with red carpet treatment, and complex requirements and the processing time must be reduced, the President said, encouraging government workers to greet their clients with welcoming smile.

The President also promised to fight corruption and extravagant spending in government under the Bagong Pilipinas.

“bawal ang mga hindi tapat at nangungulimbat. Kapag pera ng bayan ang nawala dahil sa katiwalian, ang mga taong paglalaanan sana ng pondong naglaho ay nananakawan. Sa Bagong Pilipinas, bawal ang waldas,” Marcos declared.

“Ang paghahanda, lalo na ang paggugol ng budget ng bayan, ay bukas sa publiko at hindi kinukubli. Walang parte nito ang kinu-upit o sinusubi.”

Also under the reformist campaign, abuse and government excesses won’t be tolerated, the President said, noting government workers and officials are servants of the people, not their masters.

“Huwag nating pahirapan ang taong-bayan. Bagkus, suklian ang kanilang tiwala ng magalang na panunungkulan,”Marcos said, stressing the importance of feedback mechanism in correcting bad behavior.

The Bagong Pilipinas Campaign is the overarching theme of the administration’s brand of governance and leadership, characterized by a principled, accountable, and dependable government reinforced by unified institutions of society.

It encourages every Filipino to see beyond differences and work harmoniously to build a nation that shapes a more promising future for its citizens. (PND)
