The Department of Interior and Local Government – National Capital Region (DILG-NCR) has cited the Quezon City government for its successful and effective implementation of the Enhanced Comprehensive Local Integration Program (E-CLIP) for rebel-returnees.

Managed by local governments, the program provides surrendered communist rebels benefits such as livelihood and medical services, education, housing, and legal assistance.

Quezon City is the only Metro Manila city with a functional E-CLIP, the DILG said.

“We congratulate QC, lalo na si Mayor Herbert M. Bautista, for continuously functionalizing and strengthening its E-CLIP committee and providing optimum services to E-CLIP enrollees,” DILG-NCR Assistant Regional Director Juan Jovian Ingeniero said.

Four former New People’s Army-Milisya ng Bayan members from Sorsogon who had surrendered in QC received P15,000 cash assistance from the national government and social protection services from the city government in a recent ceremony attended by Mayor Herbert Bautista at the Quezon City Hall.

Three of the former rebels received a total of P257,000 for firearm remuneration.

They earlier received P65,000 immediate aid last October 2018.

Also present in the ceremony were representatives from the Quezon City Police District, the Department of National Defense, and the Joint Task Force – NCR.

Bautista, who served as one of the government’s advisers to the peace talks with Leftist rebels, approved Executive Order 8 Series of 2018 last year, creating the E-CLIP committee of Quezon City.

The QC-Social Services Development Department serves as the secretariat of the committee.

QC’s implementation of the E-CLIP is being implemented as part of its social welfare services to marginalized sectors of the city.
