Duterte issues Cir. 44, copies RA 6713 on 15-day deadline for gov't officials to reply to citizens

Philippine Star reports, "JUST IN: President Rodrigo Duterte orders agencies to respond to all public requests and concerns within 15 days."

This, again, just like Duterte's anti-endo executive order, is a copy of an existing law. RA 6713's Section 5 states, "All public officials and employees shall, within fifteen (15) working days from receipt thereof, respond to letters, telegrams or other means of communications sent by the public. The reply must contain the action taken on the request."
