The drop in Duterte’s

popularity came amid widespread public criticism of the government’s deadly campaign against illegal drugs, suspected extrajudicial killings of drug users and pushers by the police and his false allegations of overseas bank accounts of opposition Senator Antonio Trillanes and a spike in prices of fuel and basic commodities, among other concerns.

Duterte won in ARMM. Pimentel, the PDPLaban president, said the deadline for those who wanted to join the political party is November 30 to give them more time to choose its official candidates for the May 2019 midterm elections.

Zambo mayor orders closure of radio, TV stations; audit of all media outlets Continued fr om page 1 from a little time to get the other documents Salazar is demanding from us,” he said, adding, they had rejected the closure order. “We will abide if NTC tells us to stop broadcasting.” E-Media Productions is the content provider for WestWind broadcasting network based in Zamboanga Sibugay. The Kapisanan ng mga Brodkaster ng Pilipinas, an association of radio and television broadcasters in the country, also appealed to Salazar, but failed to convince her to extend the period that E-Media Productions was asking from the politician to comply with the requirements. Managers and representatives of local media also appealed to Salazar. The closure drew sympathy and protests from many followers. Salazar even reminded businessmen to properly comply with requirements for operating business in Zamboanga City and avoid inconveniences. Citing, Section 6.2 of the Department of the Interior and

Local Government-Department of Trade and Industry Joint Memorandum Circular 01, Series 2016, Salazar said all business permit applicants are mandated to comply with national laws and regulatory requirements. “Among the legal essentials are proof of business registration, business capitalization, occupancy permit, contract of lease and barangay clearance among others. For other industries, such as media - a business permit can only be obtained if the said outfit has complied with statutory requirements specifically the legislative or congressional franchise to operate,” she said. “Based on records, a number of business establishments are not compliant with requirements under the law and are facing sanctions. Under the Local Government Code, the Chief Executive is empowered to impose penalties on violators of the law. This, based on Section 16 of Republic Act 7160 or Local Government

Code which states that every local government unit shall exercise the powers expressly granted, those necessarily implied therefrom, as well as powers necessary, appropriate, or incidental for its efficient and effective governance and those which are essential to the promotion of the general welfare,” Salazar explained. Local newspapers were not spared from Salazar’s scrutiny and she ordered the City Treasurer under Romelita Candido to also conduct an audit and examine books of accounts and other pertinent records to verify and assess, and collect true amount of taxes, fees and charges from January to December 2016. It was the first time such audit of the media outlets has been ordered by the local government. Media executives said they will comply with Salazar’s order. Many establishments have sprouted in Zamboanga City, but many of them also had no business permits. Many restaurants also do not issue official receipts.

Malaysia Confirms Death Of Militant In Marawi Continued fr om page 1 from Mosque in Marawi City, Mindanao which was used as a command centre by the Islamic State (IS). The former contract worker of the Selayang Municipal Council was a close affiliate of former Universiti Malaya professor Dr Mahmud Ahmad, who also joined IS, while hiding in the jungle with Abu Sayyaf in Basilan, southern Philippines. Both of them played a key role in the May 23

Marawi assault, together with Abu Sayyaf leader Isnilon Hapilon, Abdullah Maute and Omarkhayam Maute to establish a caliphate in Southeast Asia. Previously, two Malaysian militants had their deaths confirmed in the Marawi city. After an ongoing fourmonth siege, intelligence sources confirmed the deaths of Abdurahman Asmawi from Kelantan and Dr Kamsa Yahya from Kedah.

In August, New Straits Times reported Mahmud and Joraimee appeared in a video by the militant group along with other fighters, calling Muslims in the region to join their cause and take up arms. While Mahmud wore a face mask to conceal his identity, Joraimee had no problem showing his face, and was seen in the video holding a shotgun and an over-sized keris, which was his trademark.

Senate approves 2018 ARMM Budget COTABATO CITY - The Senate has approved the P33.569 billion budget for the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM) for 2018. Senators present during the plenary hearing did not raise any questions which made the budget approval in less than a minute. No discussion took place between the ARMM executives and the senators. ARMM Gover nor Mujiv Hataman said the speedy approval of ARMM budget is a manifestation of the Senate's trust in his administration. "Sa senate finance subcommittee hearing pa lang, we received positive feedbacks na from our lawmakers. And this speedy approval in Senate means they trust our administration," Hataman said. The Senate finance subcommittee endorsed the budget proposal on September 18. The bud-

get also had a swift approval at the House of Representatives after it received support from the majority on September 12. About P14.661 billion, or 43.8% of the total budget is allocated for personnel service. Another P14.042 billion, or 41.96%, is allocated for capital outlay, and the remaining P4.766 billion or 14.24%, is for maintenance and other operating expenses. Hataman said the budget was formulated based on many considerations that include the ARMM Regional Development Plan, 2017-2022, which was anchored on the Philippine Development Plan, 2017-2022. The Hataman administration's two banner programs will serve more target families and barangays in 2018. Since it started, the ARMM's Bangsamoro Regional Inclusive Development for Growth and Equity (BRIDGE) has

provided shelter, electricity, water and food provision for 5,600 less privileged families across the region. 7,000 more families will benefit from the program in 2018. The second program, ARMM-Health, Education, Livelihood, Peace and Security, and Synergy (ARMM-HELPS), aims at establishing a peaceful and secure environment in the region by providing basic social services especially in relation to health, education, livelihood, good gover nance and peace in barangays. Since 2014, there were 403 barangays that established their barangay peace center, health centers, water facilities, daycare centers and livelihood centers and even housing projects. In 2018, the region sets to put up these infrastructures to 150 barangays regionwide. (Bureau of Public Information)

PDEA now is sole authority to conduct anti-drug ops PRESIDENT Rodrigo Duterte has directed the Philippine National Police (PNP), National Bureau of Investigation (NBI), Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP), Bureau of Customs (BOC) and all other agencies or ad hoc anti-drug task force to stop conducting anti-illegal drug operations. According to a memorandum signed by the President on Tuesday, the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) will henceforth be the sole agency that can conduct anti-illegal drug operations pursuant to RA No. 9165, or the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002. Duterte issued the directive “in order to bring order to the operation/ campaign against illegal drugs, thus pinpointing precise accountability.” The memorandum directed the NBI, PNP, AFP, BOC, Philippine Postal Office and all other agencies as well as all ad hoc antidrug task forces to immediately relay, deliver and bring to the attention of the PDEA all information they received for its appropriate action. “The PNP, shall at all times, maintain police visibility, as a deterrent to illegal drug activities leaving to the PDEA however the conduct of anti-illegal drug operations as aforestated,” the memo said. Under Article IX, Section 84 of RA No. 9165,

PDEA is mandated, among others, to: (a) Implement or cause the efficient and effective implementation of the national drug control strategy formulated by the Board (Dangerous Drugs Board) thereby carrying out a national drug campaign program which shall include drug law enforcement, control and prevention campaign with the assistance of concerned government agencies; (b) Undertake the enforcement of the provisions of Article II of this Act relative to the unlawful acts and penalties involving any dangerous drug and/or controlled precursor and essential chemical and investigate all violators and other matters involved in the commission of any crime relative to the use, abuse or trafficking of any dangerous drug and/or controlled precursor and essential chemical as provided for in this Act and the provisions of Presidential Decree No. 1619; (c) Arrest and apprehend as well as search all violators and seize or confiscate, the effects or proceeds of the crimes as provided by law and take custody thereof, for this purpose the prosecutors and enforcement agents are authorized to possess firearms, in accordance with existing laws; (d) Monitor and if warranted by circumstances, in coordination

with the Philippine Postal Office and the Bureau of Customs, inspect all air cargo packages, parcels and mails in the central post office, which appear from the package and address itself to be a possible importation of dangerous drugs and/or controlled precursors and essential chemicals, through on-line or cyber shops via the internet or cyberspace. RA No. 1965 further states that: "Nothing in this Act shall mean a diminution of the investigative powers of the NBI and the PNP on all other crimes as provided for in their respective organic laws: Provided, however, That when the investigation being conducted by the NBI, PNP or any ad hoc anti-drug task force is found to be a violation of any of the provisions of this Act, the PDEA shall be the lead agency. The NBI, PNP or any of the task force shall immediately transfer the same to the PDEA: Provided, further, That the NBI, PNP and the Bureau of Customs shall maintain close coordination with the PDEA on all drug related matters.” Duterte’s directive was issued following allegations of human rights abuses committed by the PNP in the war against drugs. This will also be the second time that President Duterte ordered the

PNP to stop all anti-drug operations nationwide. On Januar y 30, Duterte instructed the PNP to dismantle all its anti-illegal drug units and “cleanse its ranks” of corrupt personnel following

the kidnap and murder of a South Korean businessman inside Camp Crame in Quezon City. On February 27, the President allowed the PNP a limited participation in the anti-drug

campaign through smaller task forces. And on March 6, the PNP officially relaunched its campaign against drugs dubbed Oplan Double Barrel Alpha Reloaded. ( Jose Cielito Reganit)

ARMM villages organize anti-drug abuse councils COTABATO CITY – A total of 2,114 barangay or villages in the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM) have organized anti-dr ug abuse councils aimed at preventing corruption, illegal drugs, and criminality at the community level. Inter ior and Local Government Secretary Atty. Noor Hafizullah M. Abdullah said the regional government fully supports national programs aimed at combating the illegal drug problem. The Department of the Interior and Local Government national office earlier issued memorandum circulars for a unified action against illegal drugs among local government units (LGUs). Villae officials should establish, reactivate, and/or strengthen anti-dr ug abuse councils, it noted. The Barangay AntiDr ug Abuse Council (BADAC) is considered as the first line of defense against the proliferation

of prohibited drugs in the community. It is composed of barangay officials and barangay sectoral representatives having first-hand information about the members of the community. They are to work directly with the Philippine National Police (PNP), together with Municipal Anti-Drug Abuse Council, or MADAC. The members of BADAC plan, draw strategy, implement and evaluate programs and projects on drug abuse prevention. Ar iel Castillo, barangay chief of Townsite in Maluso, Basilan whose BADAC is active, said this is a huge help in the community as it eliminates drug-related cases and ensures the safety of residents in his village. Se c re t a r y Ab d u l l a h warned that barangay officials may face a complaint on dereliction of duty if they fail to organize a functional BADAC. “All the barangays in the region

must organize their antidrug abuse council since they are the frontlines in the fight against the drug menace. Failure to do so is (tantamount to) violation of the law,” he said. In an official statement, DILG OIC-Secretary Catalino S. Cuy called for LGUs to install drop boxes in their communities under its MASA MASID (Mamamayang Ayaw sa A n o m a l y a , Mamamayang Ayaw sa Iligal na Droga) project. Sec. Cuy said setting up drop boxes is just one of the channels by which the public may provide feedback, comments, suggestions or recommendations to the government on its anticriminality drive for proper assessment and referral to appropriate agencies. Other DILG and local government channels include a hotline, electronic mail, short messaging system or texts, among others. (Bureau of Public Information)

Inday Sarah, binuweltahan ang ‘Tindig Pilipinas’ DAVAO CITY –Binansagan ni Presidential daughter at Davao City Mayor Sarah Duterte-Carpio na “Hunger Games Pilipinas” ang bagong grupo ng oposisyon na “Tindig Pilipinas” at isa-saing

sinumbatan ang mga kalabang pulitiko na miyembro ng naturang samahan. Tinawag nitong plastik at oportunista sina Senador Kiko Pangilinan, Antonio Trillanes at Riza

Hontiveros. Nanawagan ang grupo nila na itigil ni Presidente Rodrigo Duterte ang extrajudicial killings sa drug war nito at tapos na umano ang honeymoon nito sa mamamayan.

HEALTH: Ubo: Ano Ang Solusyon? Payo ni Dr. Willie T. Ong INUUBO ka ba? Kung mayroon, ikaw ay hindi nag-iisa. Ano ba ang pinanggagalingan ng ubo? Ang ubo ay puwedeng dahil sa trangkaso (flu), sipon at ubo (common colds), allergy, sigarilyo (smoker’s cough), pulmonya (pneumonia), namamagang tonsils (tonsillitis) at tuberkulosis. Sa mga sakit na ito, ang pulmonya at tonsillitis lang ang nangangailangang inuman ng antibiotics, tulad ng Amoxicillin. Ang tuberculosis naman ay ginagamot ng anim na buwan ng TB medicines. Subalit para sa pangkaraniwang sanhi ng ubo, tulad ng trangkaso, sipon at allergy, heto ang mga puwede nating gawin: 1. Uminom ng 8-12 basong tubig –— Ayon sa mga pulmonary experts, tubig lang talaga ang pinakamabisang gamot sa ubo. Pinapalabnaw kasi ng tubig ang ma--didikit na plema. Kapag lumabnaw na ang plema, mas madali natin ito mailalabas. 2. Uminom nang mainit na salabat o sabaw ng manok — Malaki ang tulong ng salabat at luya para ma-gin--hawahan

Dr. Willie T. Ong ang lalamunan natin. May panlaban din ito sa bacteria at nakaaalis ng kati ng lalamunan. Ang pag-inom naman ng mainit na sabaw ay nagpapaluwag din ng mga tubo natin sa baga. 3. Itigil ang paninigarilyo — Ang sigarilyo ay naka-pagdudulot ng emphysema, isang klaseng sakit kung saan nabubutas at nasisira ang ating baga. Kapag lampas ka sa 10 stick ng sigarilyo bawat araw, siguradong may tama na ang inyong baga. Sorry po at walang gamot para sa smoker’s cough. Itigil ang yosi. 4. Umiwas sa nakakaallergy na bagay —– Mara-ming ubo ang nanggagaling sa allergy. Puwedeng magka-allergy

sa usok, sa balahibo ng pusa at aso, sa matata-pang na pabango, at sa mga pollen ng mga halaman. Umiwas sa mga bagay na ito. Puwede rin uminom ng gamot para sa allergy. 5. Gamot para sa ubong may plema — Nagbibigay ang mga doktor ng gamot tulad ng carbocisteine o ambroxol para lumabnaw ang plema. 6. Gamot para sa tuyong ubo (dry cough) — – Para sa nakaiistorbong ubo, yung tipong hindi ka patutulugin, kumonsulta sa doktor at magpa-reseta ng gamot. 7. Magpahinga at iwas bisyo — Huli sa lahat, ang kaila-ngan ng ating katawan ay pa-hinga. Kapag kompleto ang tulog natin ay dahan-dahang lalakas ang ating katawan. Tanggal ang ubo. Tandaan: Kumonsulta muna sa doktor bago uminom ng gamot. Good luck. DISCLAIMER: The health advice in this forum is only for general knowledge. For your specific questions, kindly consult your personal physician. Thank you.

Sinabi pa ni Carpio na ilang beses nangulit si dating senador Kiko Pangilinan kay noon Mayor Rodrigo Duterte at nagmamakaawa na humihingi ng basbas para sa kanyang ambisyon na tumakbong Pangulo. “Kiko PangilinanSeveral years ago nagkita tayo dito sa Davao, sa isang golf club, pinuntuhan mo si PRD (Presidente Rodrigo Duterte). Gusto mo tumakbo Presidente, ansabe mo? "With Sharon's indorsement and your (PRD) indorsement I'm sure I can make it." Dati pa-indorse ka sa kanya ngayon may pa hunger games salute effect ka,” ani Carpio. Maging si Senador Risa Hontiveros ay hindi rin nakaligtas sa maaanghang na salita ni Carpio at isiniwalat na tulad ni Pangilinan ay pilit rin humihingi ng endorsa ito kay Duterte. At maging ang larawan ni Hontiveros sa grupong Tindig Pilipinas na lumabas sa mga pahayagan ay hindi pinamlampas ni Carpio. “Sa picture ikaw ang pinaka-makapal ang foundation acheng. Habang tinutulungan ko si PRD at ang nanay ko

mangampanya, nasa byaheng du30 ako, ilang beses mo ako inabala, kinulit at tinawagan para humingi ka ng tulong sa boto mo sa Davao City? I can remember your bored face listening to me in our law office just so you can get support for Davao,” sabi pa ni Carpio. Humingi rin umano ng tulong si Senador Antonio Trillanes – na kabilang sa Tindig Pilipinas - kay Duterte at kay Carpio, ngunit tumanggi naman ito dahil sa “circus” ng dating Magdalo coup leader sa Manila Peninsula na kung saan ay sumuko ito matapos na mabigo sa kanilang coup de etat. “Trillanes - years ago, nagrequest ka makipag kita sa akin dito sa Davao, nasa Damosa (shopping complex) ka, ano sabi ko sa emissary mo? No. You know why? I never liked your circus sa Manila Peninsula. Pero meron ako picture na nakipagkita ka kay PRD kasi humingi ka ng tulong niya sa VP campaign mo,” pagsisiwalat pa ni Carpio. Hindi naman ito nagbigay ng anumang salita laban kay Bise Presidente Leni Robredo dahil wala naman ito sa grupo nina Pangilinan.

“VP Robredo - I'll reserve my remarks kasi sabi mo naman hindi ka member ng Hunger Games Pilipinas,” sambit pa ng Mayor. Nanindigan rin ang presidential daughter na totoo ang lahat ng kanyang sinabi ukol sa mga nabanggit nito. “Lahat ito hindi chismis kasi personal knowledge ko at may corroborative witnesses ako. Matanong ko lang, nung mga panahon na humingi kayo ng tulong, may isyu ba kayo sa governance ni PRD? Wala.” “Ngayon na nanalo na siya? Meron. Hunger Games, Pilipinas: Plastic na, oportunista pa. Kayo 3 may ambisyon mag Presidente, I grew up in politics, mas matagal pako sa pulitika kesa sa inyo 3 combined. I smell ambition a million miles away. Akala ninyo yung circus ninyo ngayon magpapanalo sa inyo sa 2022? Hindi. Ano ititindig niyo? Paninindigang Trapo. Mamuyboy ko? Yes. You don't use PRD whenever convenient para sa pulitika ninyo. Kung wala ang boto ng Mindanao, mananalo kaya kayo?,” pangwakas pa ni Carpio. (Mindanao Examiner)

tem (OAS) at https:// to schedule an appointment. All fields in the OAS form must be filled out properly or else it becomes invalid. Canque advised first time passport applicants to bring with them all the required documents when they show up for their appointment, which include the birth certificate, marriage certificate issued by the Philippine Statistics Authority, and valid government ID cards. For renewal of passports, applicants only need to bring a valid ID and their old passport for e-passports or passports issued after 2010. To thosewith passports issued before 2010, Canque said they will need to verify the applicant’s identities again, as part of their security measures against fake or dual identities. The OAS was implemented for the conve-

nience of the applicants. “We just need a verified e-mail address of the applicant because it is through there that we send the confirmations and other updates on the application,” Canque said. Prior to the implementation of the OAS, passport applicants had to line up at the DFA office as early as three in the morning to secure priority numbers. Priority lanes are available for pregnant women, senior citizens, persons with disabilities, solo parents, and minors aged seven years old and below. The fee for regular processing which will take at least 20 working days, is P950, while expedited processing within 10 working days will cost P1,200. If the applicant opts to have the passport delivered via courier, an additional P150 will be charged.
