PAGADIAN CITY — The Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) has bared the winners of the Lupong Tagapamayapa Incentive Awards (LTIA) in this region which eventually became the nominees to the national competition.

The regional winners for the Highly-Urbanized Cities Category is Pasonanca, Zamboanga City; Component Cities Category, Olingan, Dipolog City; and, 1st to 3rd Class Municipalities Category, Barangay Poblacion, Manukan, Zamboanga del Norte. There was no winner in the fourth to sixth class municipalities category.

DILG Regional Information Officer Lemuel Mejares on Saturday said the regional winners were automatically nominated to the National Awards Committee (NAC).

“It is now up to the National Awards Committee to select from among the regional entries the national awardees,” Mejares said.

Per Memorandum Circular 2008-102 dated June 17, 2008, the DILG regional office provides technical and secretariat to the Regional Awards Committee (RAC) to select and submit to the NAC the best performing lupons in the region, Mejares said.

The RAC is composed of the DILG regional as the chairperson and the Regional State Prosecutor as the vice-chairman.

The members consist of the Regional Trial Court (RTC) Executive Judge, Regional Peace and Order Council ((RPOC) representative, President of Liga ng mga Barangay Regional Chapter and two representatives from region-based non-government organization (NGO).

The nominees were evaluated on the basis of three major criteria such as the efficiency in operation, effectiveness in securing Katarungang Pambarangay objectives and creativity and resourcefulness of the Lupong Tagapamayapa, according to Mejares.
