DILG: No epal politicians in pantries

MANILA, Philippines – The government yesterday issued a stern warning against politicians who might take advantage of the Bayanihan-inspired community pantries, which are now subject to new guidelines to avoid becoming “super-spreader” activities. Interior and Local Government Secretary Eduardo Año warned that “epal” or opportunistic politicians will not be allowed to put up tarpaulins promoting themselves at community pantries that have sprouted throughout the country.
