DILG head says it's up to local governments
MANILA - Cabinet Secretary Karlo Nograles said the Duterte administration is studying imposing a national policy limiting the use of videoke and drinking.
"Usually, that's under the jurisdiction of the LGUs pero [President Rodrigo Duterte] is studying very carefully how to make it a national policy para uniform sa bawat LGUs para bigyan natin limits paggamit ng videoke at pag-inom. Nagawa na niya sa Davao but right now kasi di pa siya government policy," he explained.
But Interior Secretary Eduardo Año says it's up to local government units to impose limits on videoke and liquor use.
"Kailangan dito ordinances. Nasa kapangyarihan ng mga mayors iyan, they are the little presidents. Dapat dito eh makatulong sila sa pag-implement ng peace and order," he said.
