THE ABEKA Partylist has vowed to push for initiative to ensure that licenses of security guards all over the country will be valid for five years.
The organization said this may be implemented through a law it intends to sponsor in Congress.
“Ang driver’s license ay 5 years na ang validity, dapat lamang na gawing 5 years din ang validity ng lisensya ng ating mga security guards. Ito ang kanilang hanapbuhay at nakasalaylay sa kanila ang kaligtasan at kaayusan ng maraming establishments kasama na ang mga buildings, malls, bangko, ospital, mga opisinang pampribado at maging ng gobyerno, mga parks, mga hotels at restaurants, at marami pang iba,” said ABEKA first nominee Edgardo Pamintuan.
Pamintuan, the incumbent mayor of Angeles City and national president of the League of Cities of the Philippines, added that “increasing the validity of security guards licenses to 5 years will be one of the priority measures of ABEKA partylist at the House of Representatives.”
ABEKA is one of the 134 Commission on Elections-accredited partylist groups campaigning for 60 congressional seats allocated for the partylist system. (PR)
