- Liza Maza, incoming secretary of NAPC, is looking at conducting an audit after turnover ceremony
- Maza eyes the audit as part of her entry to the agency
- In an interview, Maza lauds the president’s first executive order from the president and express intent in implementing it over at the NAPC
Liza Maza, lead convenor for the National Anti-Poverty Commission (NAPC) said on Tuesday, July 5, that she wants an audit of the agency.
According to Maza, along with the first executive order of the president streamlining in all government agencies, she plans to implement transparency and review existing NAPC policies.
"Hindi pwede yung ahensya mo eh nagko-contribute sa pagpapalala pa ng kahirapan, di ba? So, of course kailangan, dahil papasok ako, kailangan din may audit. I want a fresh start, Ire-review ko ‘yung mga programa na in place," Maza said.
Maza also recommended a shift in paradigm and spoke about asset redistribution and building of the manufacturing industry along with institutionalizing zero corruption policy in the agency.
"I think that's a very good move," Maza said. "And I think also that it was made that way in order to supervise more efficiently and effectively these different government agencies that are supposed to address poverty and the needs of the people - yung housing yan, tapos mga basic needs nila na mga mahihirap."
Maza has expressed high regard for the first executive order from President Rodrigo Duterte, which mandates 12 government agencies to come up with programs and projects that will alleviate poverty, improve lives, promote social education, and listen to the people.
"Magandang pagpapahiwatig yun that you are listening, that you want to put your house in order so that your machinery are right there on the ground," she added.
The incoming secretary of NAPC, Liza Maza, is also expected to advocate for the protection of the welfare of the poor and marginalized as a Gabriela Representative, after the turnover ceremonies for NAPC happens on Friday. - CL, Kami Media
