RD Roldan lauds City and Municipal LGOOs who helped in the recently concluded elections

May 18, 2018 - Now that the elections are over, Regional Director Alex C. Roldan, CESO V expressed gratefulness for all DILG Local Government Operations Officers (LGOOs) who monitored the Election Day proceedings in all localities. All LGOOs were deployed to their respective areas of assignment to provide technical assistance when necessary and monitor peace and order situation in the area.

With the successful conduct of the barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan (SK) polls, the “DILG’s main agenda now is the conduct of the SK Mandatory Training for all winning SK officials as this is provided for in the SK Reform Act.”

“In fact, the provinces of Davao del Norte, Davao del Sur and Davao Occidental already started with the first batch of trainings on May 17, 2018 while Davao Oriental and Davao City is slated to start on May 19, 2018 and Compostela Valley on May 22-25, 2018. The SK mandatory trainings will run on May 17 to 26, 2018 (less Sunday).”

The SK Mandatory training aims to equip them with the right knowledge and skills on their role as youth representatives. It will cover modules on decentralization and local governance, SK history and salient features, how to conduct meetings and craft resolutions, how to do planning and budgeting, and code of conduct and ethical standards of a public official.
