DILG to hold basic orientation training for newbie Iloilo mayors next month
The Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) is scheduled to hold an orientation to first-time mayors in the Iloilo provice on the second week of July.
The orientation would be held in Metro Manila, said DILG-Iloilo director Teodora Sumagaysay.
Sumagaysay said the Local Government Academy, an attached agency of DILG, has prepared the needed modules.
“We are just waiting for them to assume office then we can start capacitating these new local officials,” she added.
The DILG official said this would help the newly minted local chief executives to be aware of their duties and responsibilities, as well as empower them.
