San Juan pledges to end local communist armed conflict

CALOOCAN CITY, Feb. 25 (PIA) -- San Juan City Mayor Francis Zamora along with local government officials on Wednesday signed the Philippine National Police’s (PNP) Pledge of Commitment to Support ELCAC (End Local Communist and Armed Conflict) at Barangay Tibagan Covered Court.

 

National Capital Region Police Office Chief PMGEN Vicente Danao Jr., Eastern Police District Director PMGEN Matthew Baccay, San Juan City Chief of Police PCOL Rodolfo Hernandez, Vice Mayor Warren Villa, and San Juan barangay chairpersons were also present in support of the ELCAC.

The ELCAC was formed through President Rodrigo Duterte’s Executive Order No. 70 in December 2018, which institutionalized a whole-of-nation approach in achieving an “inclusive and sustainable peace” in the country.

PMGEN Danao said he is grateful to the City of San Juan for their full support to this initiative.

“Local communist have been in existence for 50 years. It’s high time we put a stop to this. Nakikita niyo ang full support ni Mayor Zamora at mga barangay chairmen sa ELCAC,” PMGen. Danao added.

“Dito sa San Juan wala kayong dapat alalahanin, full support from the mayor, the vice mayor, the councilors, the barangay captains, all the way to each and every San Juaneno, kami po ay sumusuporta sa ELCAC. Gagawin po namin ang lahat para manatiling tahimik ang ating lungsod,” Mayor Zamora said in his statement.

Guest of honor PMGEN Danao was also given a certificate of appreciation for his tireless efforts and unwavering support to the City of San Juan, particularly in preserving the peace and order in the city.

Meanwhile, PMGEN Danao also thanked Mayor Zamora for the new 6-storey building that will be the new home of the Eastern Police District Headquarters, San Juan PNP, and San Juan Bureau of Fire Protection Station. (PIA NCR)
