Duterte cabinet to donate 75% of monthly salary to aid COVID-19 fight - Nograles

The Duterte administration is doing something that has not been done before in Philippine politics.

Majority of the Duterte cabinet have pledges to voluntarily donate 75% of their monthly salary to aid the government’s fight against the novel coronavirus 2019 disease (COVID-19), this according to Cabinet Secretary Karlo Nograles.

“Nais din nating ipagbigay-alam na ang karamihan, majority, ng mga miyembro ng gabinete ni Pangulong Duterte ay boluntaryong ibibigay ang malaking bahagi —75%— ng kanilang buwanang sahod upang ilaan sa mga programa ng gobyerno upang sugpuin ang COVID-19 sa loob ng panahong pinapatupad ang Bayanihan Law,” Nograles said during the Inter-Agency Task Force for Emerging Infectious Diseases public hearing.

(We wish to inform you that a majority of the members of the Cabinet of President Duterte will voluntarily give 75 percent of their monthly salaries to the programs of the government to end COVID-19 during the effectivity of the Bayanihan Law.)

Nograles was referring to the recently signed Republic Act 11469, or the “Bayabihan to Heal As One Law”, which also gave President Rodrigo Roa Duterte additional powers to address the COVID-19 crisis.

Some off the Cabinet members, Nograles explains that they will donate their salaries until December of this year just support the anti-COVID-19 programs.

Nograles is one of those cabinet members that have pledged to donate their salaries.
