Gov Marañon: National ID system is long overdue
Negros Occidental Governor Alfredo Marañon Jr said the creation of the national identification system is long overdue.
President Rodrigo Duterte on August 6 signed Republic Act 11055, or the Philippine Identification System Act of 2018.
The Negros Occidental politiko said the law should have been passed years ago.
Marañon said the law will not only make transactions easier, it will also benefit the government in its anti-crime and anti-terrorism programs.
“It is good for the Filipinos and the Philippines as the number one problem in the country and the whole world is terrorism,” Marañon said.
