Manila "Dugyot" days are over, major clean up & dev't awaits capital - Isko Moreno




Manila’s resurgence is looking up.

As the new beginning dawns on the capital of the Philippines, the first order of business will be to make it clean again.


Newly elected Isko Moreno admits that Manila is “Dugyot” or dirty and as his first order of business  he would "move heaven and earth" to clean up the Philippines' capital city to make it more attractive to investors (local and foreigners alike) and uplift the lives of its residents.

Fresh from toppling former president, incumbent Mayor Joseph Estrada as the top local executive in the city of Manila, the former vice mayor beats Estrad denying him his third and final term as mayor.


"I'll move heaven and earth to clean up the city. Dugyot kami. Papaliguan ko lang naman," he told ANC's Headstart, Karen Davilla.
He told Karen, he would call for a bidding for a new trash contractor for the city.

"It's a humbling experience. Yung results kasi overwhelming. Scary, in a way people are expecting more now. Nakaka-tense," Moreno said of his election win.
As regards to the city’s street vendor, the newly elected mayor said he would designate a permanent area for them, so that the latter would no longer pay bribes.
Another plan is the redevelopment of Binondo as a business district, and Pandacan, the former site of an oil depot, as a green area, Moreno said.

Delpan is being considered a site for an in-city housing for Manila’s urban poor families.
"Para mapakita kung totoo laway, ko I'll start it there. It can be a model to any local government unit then I'll go to Baseco then to Parola," he said.
Real estate and business taxes, as per Moreno he will lower it.

Moreno said he is willing to reach out to Estrada and former Manila Mayor Alfredo Lim.

"Kailangan ko silang dalawa if they're willing. Marami rin akong pwedeng matutunan sa kanila... If they have ideas, why not? There is no monopoly of knowledge," he said.
