The Duterte administration is set to launch government hotlines 911 and 888 in August!


Presidential Communications Secretary Martin Andanar said in an interview that they will launch two 24-hour government hotlines in August.

“We’re lunching this in August — 8888 plus the 911 hotline,” Andanar told media.

President Duterte first mentioned the project during their first cabinet meeting on June 30.

“l am setting up a complaint office, 24 hours, manned by 10 operators, covering the entire country. The number will be 8888. They can report to me any complaint and there will be a manager who will redirect the complaint to the proper office,” said Duterte.
