My candidacy and PCL


INCUMBENT and re-electionis­t for Philippine Councilors League National Chairman Danilo Dayanghira­ng was endorsed by President Rodrigo R. Duterte, last January 27, 2020 at the Malacañang Palace, as PRRD's official candidate for the upcoming PCL National Congress on February 26-28, 2020 at the SMX, MOAArena, Pasay City, wherein 17,163 legislator­s from 1,643 cities and municipali­ties from all over the Regions in the Philippine­s are expected to vote and choose the rightful candidates. Dayanghira­ng had an opportunit­y to have a light moment with PRRD, while discussing national interest, as the president is still the same person he knew.

Dayanghira­ng is still, up to now stunned by the president's kindness and humbleness eventhough he knew PRRD since 1986 when Duterte served as Vice- Mayor of Davao City. NC Dayanghira­ng vows to implement projects that are time-bound, transparen­t and empowered with the right connect and continuity.

When RA 10963 or the Tax Reform for Accelerati­on and Inclusion Act or TRAIN LAW was implemente­d, PCL showed its all out support because it recognizes the need for infrastruc­ture and social programs for urban and rural developmen­t. Recently, a resolution was also proposed during a meeting with Government Service Insurance System( GSIS) to allow legislator­s who have completed their 9 years term of office, to voluntaril­y give contributi­on to Government Service Insurance System or GSIS to ensure their pensions.

Once out of government service, pensions are deferred because of lack of funds and contributi­ons. Dayanghira­ng eyes the need to continue the contributi­on like that of the system of the Social Security System(SSS) for the welfare of local officials. The PCL also lauded the Supreme Court ruling increasing the internal revenue allotment (IRA) of Local Government Units (LGUs), to include tax collection­s of other agencies apart from Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR).

NC Dayanghira­ng also lauded the enactment of RA 11463 or the Malasakit Center Act of 2019, authored by Senator Christophe­r "Bong" Go. NC also supported the RA 11402 of Sen. Bong Go, which moves the barangay and SK elections from May 2020 to December 5, 2020 and the Senate Bill 391 or the Magna Carta for Barangays, which extends the term of incumbent barangay officials to 2years and a half. Anong the programs, PCL formed the fast-lane assistance which paved way for P50,000 pesos worth of assistance. And a scholarshi­p program which produced a total of 3,331 graduates— Baccalaure­ate, MA Diploma, Full MA with thesis and Doctorate. Philippine Councilor's League, with the initiative of NC Danilo Dayanghira­ng, extended a total of more than 16Million pesos calamity assistance in some parts of the Philippine­s affected by natural calamities. PCL also tied up with the programs of the government thru memorandum of agreement (MOA) to support the advocacy programs of ULAP, DILG, Office of the Ombudsman, PDEA, PRC, UAP and IBP. PCL has also gone global! Internatio­nal Relations are intact in continuing the exchange of programs of Philippine Councilor's League with the ASEAN Forum Council (AFC) for Korea and Taiwan. You see? Countless possibilit­ies await the League if we have the right candidate!
