DOTr pushes motor vehicle inspection program

/ 05:16 AM February 28, 2021

MANILA, Philippines — The Department of Transportation (DOTr) on Friday called out Sen. Grace Poe for asking for the suspension of the motor vehicle inspection system and for insinuating that the program might breed irregularities and corruption.

“The DOTr fully respects Senator Poe as a legislator. But, to insist on encroaching on our prerogative and function to implement a program or policy beneficial to the people is altogether a different matter,” the DOTr said in a statement.

In the last hearing on the matter of the Senate committee on public services, which Poe chairs, the DOTr said they had “already exhaustively explained that the alleged irregularities were actually operational deficiencies, to be viewed as birth pains of a new system that can be remedied immediately.”
