SENATOR Maria Imelda “Imee” R. Marcos on Monday called on her brother, Philippine President Ferdinand R. Marcos, Jr. to fast-track the release of a proclamation reserving 171 hectares of land in Taytay, Rizal as affordable housing for poor Filipinos.

“Tens of thousands of informal settlers’ households await a conclusive presidential proclamation on Lupang Arenda (in Taytay),” she said in a statement.

“It would bring the government closer to its of building one million housing units each year, as promised.” — John Victor D. Ordoñez
