Solon wants release of CCT funds to beneficiaries before May polls



House minority leader Danilo Suarez. RYAN LEAGOGO/

MANILA, Philippines — House minority leader Danilo Suarez wants beneficiaries of the government’s conditional cash transfer to receive the money ahead of the midterm elections to avoid corrupting the program.

Suarez told reporters Thursday that he would file on Monday a resolution which would urge the government to release funding for CCT beneficiaries starting February, 90 days before the polls set in May.

“I’m going to ask that starting the campaign of the Senate, which will be on February, yung beneficiaries ng CCT ibigay na ng 90 days advance. Para walang distribution during the campaign period,” he said.

“We will try to avoid any malicious intent for a good program na lalagyan ng bahid pulitika,” Suarez added.

    this is a true corruption,,lahat ng cct benificiaries ay hindi tlga yung totoong mahihirap

    • raul n

       it is not lahat ay hindi talaga totoong mahihirap. not totally true. but as it is you can not have it without hitch, error or mistakes or perfect. if there are, for me they are just a few because in our place a validation and checking of beneficiaries are always done on a periodic bases.

        i have a basis that this cct or the 4 Ps that the DSWD is the authorizing govt agency for the distribution of those benificiaries,as i said they are using only this funds for pogi points of aquino govt and sec, dinky soliman,,i think this is not a right way for using this govt funds, how about others? mas marami pang naghihirap jan na hindi nabibigyan..

    Hehehehe. Nagpapatawa tong si Suarez.Ibigay ng Gobyerno in advance yung CCT ayon sa gusto mo eh di mas lalong nagamit sa election campaign ng mga candidates yung pera kesa sa dapat na kapuntahan. Why don’t you suggest distributing the CCT after the May election para siguradong hindi magagamit sa election. Isama mo na rin ang resolution na walang dapat maganap na disbursement sa CCT during the campaign until after the election.

    Si Danilo Suarez, tama siya, tama rin si joshmale2004. Kaya lang, higit na tama si Josh. After election na lang.

    Here is another score. Remember Congressman Danilo Suarez. He is filthy rich, he was the one who paid the 1 million pesos dinner in an Exclusive French Restaurant in New York. I just really do not know if he was able to get a “soft loan” from his former boss, Gloria, worth 1 billion pesos. Anyway, remember that he just like the other members of the infamous “Lakas-Kampi-CMD” many who jump to the L.P. in the Last May 2010 National Election, ngayon, they are citing moral values.

    Isa rin si yan si Congresswoman Mila Magsaysay, according to her, she likes being called “People’s Representative” because, according to her, she represent the will of her constituents.” E-bakit noong nag jet-setting o globe-trotting si Gloria noong kalakasan niya, palaging nakabit-bit ka? Ngayon, fiscalizer down sila. Minority group, being the watch-dog of the L.P. dominated government. He he he. L.P. lang ang tawag diyan, kayal lang, nagmamasid din sila sa “winnability” ng boss nila. He heh . Nakakatawa itong mga bolerong mga politiko. Believe ako sa pambobola nila.

    As if this Gentleman from the 3rd district of Quezon is not corrupting his constituents by giving alms only when election time is near! Ask yourself Mr. Congressman, what have you done in your own district?
