Local government leadership award launched

The La Salle Institute of Governance (LSGI) in partnership with the Office of Senator Aquilino Pimentel, Jr. and the UP National College of Public Administration and Governance through the Center for Local and Regional Governance and the Center for Leadership, Citizenship, and Democracy collaborated in the establishment of the Local Government Leadership Award.

In announcement ceremonies held at the Padilla Hall of the Senate Building on December 11, the partner institutions recognized the importance of leadership in making local governments work effectively.

To serve as inspiration and example for other leaders, the Local Leadership Award seeks to recognize the outstanding performance of local officials in the field of local governance and local management reforms.

Dr. Francisco Magno, LSIG executive director, mentioned that the leadership award program is not limited to giving of awards. This would also involve the need to undertake research in documenting the new and emerging styles of local leadership in the construction of new leadership models and the promotion of good local governance.

Magno emphasized the importance of the inter-relatedness of the various levels of governance and the strengthening of linkages among the government, private sector, civil society, and the citizenry.

The event was graced by Department of Interior and Local Government Secretary Joey Lina, who delivered a statement of support for the leadership program. Former Education Undersecretary Victor Andres Manhit also attended for LSIG.
