By ULAP
May 24, 2017 - Quezon City


The Union of Local Authorities of the Philippines, the umbrella organization of all local government units and locally elected and appointed officials, strongly condemns the terrorist attacks by the Maute Group, affecting several local communities in Mindanao. We sympathize with the leaders and local government units as these terrorist acts instill fear and uncertainty to the people they lead and serve. These have caused chaos and distraught calling for nationwide vigilance and empathy.

We, in the local government, deem it important to be unified and  to work hand-in-hand to overcome this national threat. We are one with President Rodrigo Roa Duterte on his declaration of Martial Law in Mindanao consistent with his Constitutional mandate to ensure peace and order. The President’s declaration is in the best interest of the country. This declaration is required to ensure public safety, and to restore peace and order. In the forefront of local service delivery, we see this declaration as an integral move to address the urgent needs of our affected brothers and sisters in the area.

This is the best time to show that we are strong as one nation amid the threats to security and stability of our country. We will continue to be vigilant that this will not be an occasion to instigate animosity and division in our society. For and in behalf of all the members, we will continue to pray for peace in our nation and to extend assistance and support at this difficult time.
