Davao City 1st district Councilor Pilar Braga wants the proposed national identification (ID) card system to be approved as soon as possible.
“It is our hope that the issuance of the ID card will not take forever to be released like the eternal wait for our driver’s license and voter’s ID,” Braga was quoted as saying Wednesday (July 12) in a Mindanao Times report.
The lady politiko delivered a privilege speech before the City Council’s regular session wherein she said she would pass a resolution supporting the creation of the national ID system.
Braga noted that the ID proposal was first floated during the time of former president Fidel V. Ramos.
She expressed confidence that the national ID system will finally get lawmakers’ nod under the current Duterte administration.
Last May, the national ID system hurdled the Committee level at the House of Representatives (HOR).
