All 12 mayors in Metro Manila complied with President Rodrigo Duterte's order to remove illegal structures, vendors and vehicles from sidewalks, the interior department said Monday.

Duterte earlier gave mayors across the country 60 days or until Sept. 29 to reclaim roads being used for private purposes. 

"Lahat ng mayors sa Metro Manila ay nakapag-comply, okay ang kanilang performance," Interior Secretary Eduardo Año told radio DZMM. 

(All mayors in Metro Manila complied, their performance was okay.) 

Ninety-seven mayors from provinces, on the other hand, flunked the clearing parameters and were asked to explain why they should not face any case before the Office of the Ombudsman, he said. 

The interior department will check the maintenance of cleared roads every quarter, he added.
