MANILA - Malacanang is set to release to the public a presentation that will highlight the accomplishments of the Duterte administration in its first 50 days.

"Well, there's the FOI [Freedom of Information] for one and the addressing of the drug situation, addressing the traffic situation, let's watch for it. It's gonna be pretty exciting," Presidential Spokesman Ernesto Abella told reporters on Thursday

He gave no details of the presentation but said that it will be with annotations. He assured media that everybody will have access to it.

Duterte's 50th day in office falls on August 19.

Duterte earlier signed an executive order (EO) on freedom of information, which provides for full disclosure of government records and transactions.

Under the order, "Every Filipino shall have access to information, official records, public records and papers pertaining to official acts, transactions or decisions as well as government research data used as basis for public development."

The EO also reminds public officials to file and make available for scrutiny their statements of assets, liabilities and net worth (SALNs).

Meanwhile, Abella said the Duterte administration's campaign against illegal drugs has seen over 600,000 drug suspects coming forward.

Senator Grace Poe said the Senate may be able to pass the measure granting President Rodrigo Duterte emergency powers to solve traffic by December.
