Forty-three mayors will be issued show cause orders for allegedly committing various infractions in relation to the distribution of the cash aid under the social amelioration program (SAP), the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) said on Thursday.

DILG Secretary Eduardo M. Año said the 43 local chief executives will have to explain “why they had poor performance despite the two extensions of the deadline given to local government units with the latest deadline ending on 12 midnight of May 10’’.

Año said that the 43 mayors will have to provide reasonable explanations on why they should not be sanctioned as about three percent of low-income families have not received their cash grants as of May 13. The DILG chief said that 11 of these mayors are in Western Visayas, 8 are in MIMAROPA, 5 in Central Visayas, 4 in the Davao Region, and 4 in the National Capital Region.

He said that Año has decided to transfer the investigation of corrupt practices of barangay officials of SAP from the DILG field offices to the PNP CIDG field offices for the immediate filing of cases since the CIDG has more investigators than the DILG field offices.
