Statement of Senator Win Gatchalian Calling for the timely release of Teachers' Election Honoraria

Now that the 2019 budget has been signed by the President and this year being an election year, the Comelec should coordinate closely with the Department of Education even as early as now to ensure it has an accurate list of all public school teachers serving as Board of Election Inspectors (BEI).

Bawat eleksyon na lang ay naririnig natin ang hinaing ng ating mga guro dahil sa delay ng release ng kanilang honoraria at travel allowance bilang BEI. Nananawagan ako sa Comelec na sana ay maghanda na sila ngayon pa lang upang maging maaga at maayos ang distribution ng honoraria at allowances ng ating mga guro at hindi na maulit pa ang problemang ito ngayong taon.

Our teachers' jobs during the elections are stressful enough as it is; let us not add to their burden by denying what is rightfully due them.
