MANILA, Philippines — More than 14 million national IDs have been delivered, so far across the country, the Philippine Postal Corporation (PhilPost) reported Monday.

PhilPost Postmaster General and Chief Executive Officer Norman Fulgencio said 14,033,000 out of the 14,800,000 national IDs up for delivery had been distributed as of July 8,2022.


“As of July 8, we were able to deliver already 14,033,000…So ongoing yung about 700,000 plus since July 8,” Fulgencio said during the Laging Handa briefing.

(As of July 8, we were able to deliver 14,033,000 already… So around 700,000 are still continuous delivery since July 8.)


“So by tomorrow, we will get our latest update report. Siguro yung [700,000] baka nabawasan na yan ng mga 350,000 so siguro 50 percent na lang ng balance natin yung nai-deliver na,” he added.

(By tomorrow, we will get our latest update. Maybe some 350,000 will be delivered out of the 700,000.)

Asked about the reported delays in releasing the national IDs, Fulgencio said: “I don’t think I’m the right person to answer the question.”

“Ang trabaho namin ay i-deliver ‘yan. Once na matanggap namin, Kailangan naming i-deliver. ,” Fulgencio said.

(Our task is to deliver the ID cards; once we receive them, we have to deliver them.)

“Kung ano yung reason kung bakit nadedelay, we’re not technical about it. Baka mas maganda si PSA (Philippine Statistics Authority) ang sumagot nun,” he added.

(Regarding the delays, we’re not technical about it. Maybe it would be better to have PSA answer that.)
