MB Daily News Update: P1.17-B 'ayuda' finally comes for PUV drivers, operators

The Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) has released P1.17 billion in fuel subsidy to over 180,000 drivers and operators of public utility vehicles (PUVs) nationwide to provide some relief from the worsening fuel crisis.

The agency has also given transport network vehicle firms against over-charging their passengers by way of priority boarding fees, which charge passengers a premium so that drivers will pick them up quicker.

Meanwhile, tradition weighs heavily on decisions being made for the June 30, 2022 inauguration of President-elect Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. as the country’s 17th President. Aside from the inaugural site being at the historic National Museum of the Philippines, Chief Justice Alexander Gesmundo will be administering the incoming President’s oath – a tradition that dates back to the first Chief Executives of the country.

The Supreme Court has laid down a new doctrine on the financial obligation of estranged husbands on their families.

These are among the top stories this Friday afternoon, June 3, 2022.
