Four Cordillera towns “failed” to implement President Rodrigo Duterte’s order to clear the roads of impediments.
According to the Department of the Interior Local Government (DILG), the four are Boliney and Manabo in Abra, Kabayan in Benguet, and Banaue in Ifugao.
Meanwhile, Baguio City and the towns of La Trinidad and Itogon in Benguet received low compliance ratings.
Aguinaldo and Lamut in Ifugao also received low compliance ratings.
The DILG 97 non-compliant local government units (LGU) in the country were given five days to explain their non-compliance.
In its press release, the DILG said the 97 non-compliant LGUs were given five days from receipt of the show cause orders to explain their non-compliance.
“Otherwise, the DILG will have no recourse but to submit their names to the President and file the necessary complaints with the Ombudsman,” the DILG said.
