Francis Tolentino: Reasonable IRA need for LGUs’ development

Aug 9, 2018 @ 12:50

Presidential Adviser for Political Affairs Francis Tolentino underlined the importance of the Internal Re­venue Allotment (IRA) for local government units (LGU).

The Cavite politiko said LGUs need a reasonable IRA to be able to implement the national government’s policies and programs.

“Upang masiguro na patuloy ang progreso ng mga LGU at nakahanay ang kanilang mga adhikain sa sentral na pamahalaan, mahalagang magkaroon sila ng makatarungan at sapat na pondo sa pamamagitan ng Internal Re­venue Allotment,” he said.

Tolentino also said having a reasonable IRA allows LGUs to embody the true meaning of local autonomy.

“Sa pagkakaroon ng maayos na IRA, nagkakaroon ng kakayahan ang mga lokal na pamahalaan na maisagawa ang kanilang mga development initiative. Bukod dito, nagkakaroon din ng mas malalim na kahulugan ang lokal na awtonomiya,” he said.

“Para sa mga lokal na pamahalaang nananatiling nakadepende sa kanilang IRA upang maipatupad ang kanilang mga programa, ang pagkakaroon ng mas malaking IRA ay nagbibigay ng mas mataas na kakayahang tumugon sa mga pangangailangan ng mamamayan,” Tolentino added.
