Ebdane: ‘Insurgency a political problem that needs political solution’
Zambales Governor Hermogenes Ebdane Jr. said on Friday local executives need to harmonize their efforts to address communist insurgency with the National Task Force to End Local Communist Armed Conflict (NTF-ELCAC).
“If I am not mistaken, there are actually 12 factors involved in counterinsurgency efforts, but of course, what we must first do is to understand the problem, come up with a right government response, which starts with good governance, and of course the whole-of-nation approach employing all government resources in resolving the problem,” he said.
Ebdane, chair of the Regional Peace and Order Council, made the remarks during the virtual Barangay Levelling Session on the Localization of Executive Order 70.
“Because I believe that insurgency in our country is really a political problem that needs a political solution,” the governor said.
Some 1,098 government officials in Zambales and Olongapo City attended Friday the
Attendees included members of the provincial, city, municipal and barangay ELCAC Task Forces.
The session for Zambales and Olongapo officials was the second levelling session in Central Luzon after Aurora.
Similar sessions will be conducted in Pampanga and Angeles City on June 7, Bulacan on June 8, Nueva Ecija on June 9, Tarlac on June 10 and Bataan on June 11.
