Ping: Utang ng sundalo sa sambayanan ang tinatamasa nila

Sa sambayanan may utang ang mga sundalo sa mga biyayang tinatamasa ng mga ito kapalit ng pagiging tapat sa Saligang Batas at tamang pagtupad sa mga tungkulin na nakaatang sa kanilang balikat.

Ito ang binigyang-diin ni Senador at dating Philippine National Police (PNP) Chief Panfilo Lacson bilang pagpapaalala na produkto ng sama-samang pagtatrabaho ng mga mambabatas ang mga batas na nalilikha para sa kapakinabangan ng ibaโ€™t-ibang sangay ng pamahalaan kabilang na ang sandatahang lakas.

Ayon pa kay Lacson, maliwanag na naman umano na ang mga senador ay halal ng taumbayan kaya lumalabas na ikinakatawan lamang ng mga ito ang sambayanan sa sa paghinang ng mga batas.

Lacson: AFP owes allegiance to Filipino people

Amid the laws passed for the benefit of its members, the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) should maintain its allegiance to the Philippine Constitution and to the Filipino people.

Sen. Panfilo M. Lacson stressed this as he said the measures providing for the AFP’s modernization are the work of the Senate as an institution representing the people.

“More than who authored the bills, the members of the AFP can best show their appreciation by serving the country and the Filipino people,” said Lacson, a member of the Philippine Military Academy Class 1971.

Bagong Diskarte vs Karahasan at Terorismo, Itinulak ni Ping

Bunga na rin ng patuloy na pagtaas ng banta ng terorismo at iba pang karahasan, kumilos na si Senador Panfilo Lacson upang mapalakas ang kakayahan ng pamahalaan na labanan ang mga ito.

Ito ay sa pamamagitan ng paghahain ni Lacson ng Senate Bill 1734, na naglalayong gawing mas epektibo ang mga sistemang ginagamit ng gobyerno para mapalakas ang defense system ng bansa.

“This bill is envisioned to update national defense policies, principles and concepts, to institutionalize needed improvements and to codify various laws on national defense, the AFP and the civilian bureaus, with the end in view of streamlining and further professionalizing our country’s defense establishment,” paliwanag ni Lacson sa panukala.
