MANILA — San Juan City Mayor Francis Zamora has been elected as the new President of the Metro Manila Council (MMC) Saturday night.
In the same meeting held by the MMC, the appointment of Ret. PCol. Procopio Lipana as General Manager of MMDA was also approved.
Approved also was the resolution related to the P9.7 billion fund for the operation of the MMDA.
“Yung budget ng MMDA this is the budget for Calendar year 2023 pero papasok pa sa Congress so maaari magbago pa ang budget,” Zamora said.
The single ticketing system proposal was not approved because not all mayors in Metro Manila were consulted, according to Zamora.
Meanwhile, a rule will also be issued regarding the ban on fireworks on New Year’s Eve. (ai/mtvn)
