GENERAL SANTOS CITY (September 16, 2022) - Sarangani’s technical working group (TWG) had convened in a two-day enhancement of the Executive and Legislative Agenda (ELA) 2022-2025 outputs in preparation for its finalization.
The activity was held on September 14 to 15 at Tierra Montana Hotel in General Santos City.
The refinement integrated the recommendations from the panel composed of the members of the Sangguniang Panlalawigan and representative from the Department of the Interior and Local Government last September 8 to 9.
Jelyn E. Apura, Assistant Provincial Planning and Development Coordinator and head of the TWG, said the interaction among concerned departments will facilitate for "solid institutional policies” and policies needed for the operationalization of the plans and programs.
She said this will put in place appropriate policies. “Dili lang policies nga gusto nila i-duso to the Sanggunian, but policies that are responsive and doable within the three-year executive and legislative period.”
Apura said the ELA will be finalized with the validation and concurrence of Governor Rogelio "Ruel" D. Pacquiao, Vice Governor Elmer de Peralta, and all the Capitol departments on September 23 to 24.
As of this writing, Apura estimated the ELA preparation is already at 70% to 80% completion.
She, however, anticipated for possible revisions as the governor and vice governor are expected to provide inputs during its finalization.
Aside from the preparation and validation of the ELA output, Apura pointed out a team-building is also crucial for the executive and the legislative branches “because this is a new term, there is a need to strengthen the team-building dynamics of the executive and the legislative.”
Through the ELA, she said, the realization of “resilient, dynamic, and progressive communities will truly be attained by 80- 100 percent” and would realize the “vison and mission of the province.” (Beverly C. Paoyon/ SARANGANI PROVINCIAL INFORMATION OFFICE)
