Manila City Council

The Manila City Council (Filipino: Sangguniang Panlungsod ng Maynila) or the city’s legislature is composed of 38 councilors, with 36 councilors elected from Manila’s six councilor districts (coextensive with the Legislative districts of Manila) and two councilors elected from the ranks of barangay (neighborhood) chairmen and the Sangguniang Kabataan (SK; youth councils). The presiding officer of the council is the Vice Mayor, who is elected citywide. The council is responsible for creating laws and ordinances under Manila’s jurisdiction. The mayor can veto proposed bills, but the council can override it with a two-thirds supermajority.

 

NEWS UPDATE:

NEWS ALERT: Mayor Isko Moreno ready to be vaccinated with Sinovac vaccine

Manila Mayor Francisco ‘Isko Moreno’ Domagoso has informed the Manila City Council (MCC) led by Vice Mayor Maria Sheilah ‘Honey’ Lacuna-Pangan that with the country’s Food and Drug Administration (FDA) giving Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) to Sinovac, he is now ready and willing to be vaccinated using the Beijing-based biopharmaceutical company’s COVID-19 vaccine.

The mayor of the nation’s capital is meeting the city council to personally inform its members of the readiness of the city government in the rollout of the first vaccine available in the city. This comes just moments after the FDA announced that it had already granted emergency approval for the Sinovac vaccine.

During the flag ceremony on Monday, February 22, Domagoso said, “Anuman ang bakuna, basta sertipikado at may EUA ng FDA, gagamitin natin. May karapatan kayong maging choosy. Pwede kayo maghintay ng bakunang type ninyo. Pero para sa akin, basta may EUA gagamitin po natin (We will use whatever vaccine is certified and given an EUA by the FDA. You have the right to be choosy. You can wait for the vaccine that you prefer. But for me, if it has an EUA then we will use it).”
