Presidential Adviser for Political Affairs Francis Tolentino, in his Abante column, said an increase in the Internal Re­venue Allotment (IRA) of local government units (LGU) is expected once the country shifts to a federal form of government.

The Cavite politiko said a higher IRA is needed by LGUs to address their concerns as autonomous regions.

“Kasabay ng planong paglipat natin sa federal form na pamahalaan, inaasahang magkakaroon ng kaukulang pagtaas sa IRA ang mga lokal na pamahalaan dahil kailangan ito para sa mataas na administratibong awtonomiya,” Tolentino said.

“Sa pag-antay din natin sa pagpapahayag ng ikaapat na Charter change at ng pedera­lismo bilang susi sa pambansang pag-unlad, iisa ang ating layunin na isulong ang mga lokal na komunidad,” he added.

Tolentino also stressed the importance of of LGUs having enough funds to continue the development of their communities.
