A total of 46 elected provincial officials, department heads and members of the Provincial Development Council participated in the Seminar-Workshop on the Formulation of Executive-Legislative Agenda (ELA) and Capacity Development (CapDev) Agenda held at Cebu Grand Hotel, Cebu City on September 11-13, 2013.


The three-day activity was conducted by the Provincial Government of Southern Leyte in view of its mandated roles enshrined in the Local Government Code and in compliance with DILG Memo Circular No. 2013-64.  Providing technical assistance were DILG officers composed of Provincial Director Juan M. Badocdoc, LGOO V Vicente Maraon, LGOO V Geraldine Maquelabit, and LGOO V Maria Cristina Tiu.


According to Provincial Director Johnny Badocdoc, the term-based ELA is the roadmap for the attainment of the province's development priorities within the next three years.


Under the leadership of the hands-on Governor, Roger G. Mercado, the participants were able to identify and prioritize complex issues confronting the province and managed to come up with development priorities to be budgeted and implemented.  The ELA and CapDev Agenda documents will be submitted to the DILG.


The activity was likewise attended by LMP President Roberto A. Loquinte and representatives of civil society organizations (CSOs) who also are PDC Members.
