Politics & Governance

Presidential Spokesperson and Chief Presidential Legal Counsel Secretary Salvador Panelo is personally suggesting a 24-hour activity as a way to ease traffic in Metro Manila.

“Personal kong ano, tingin ko sa – dapat magkaroon tayo ng 24 hours na activity, merong night, merong day para hati,” Secretary Panelo said during the August 13 press briefing in Malacañang.

“Like for instance, eskuwelahan, bangko, kung merong night, kumbaga 24 hours ang activity natin. Meron bang ganoon sa buong mundo? Parang wala pa. Ano kaya subukan natin?” he said.

“Can you imagine kung gagawin mong 24 hours ang activity, di kalahati niyan nasa night time iyong kalahati nasa araw,” he explained. “Siyempre male-lessen mo kasi merong ibang oras na magtatrabaho ang mga tao, papasok sa eskuwela di ba.”
