THE Manila Electric Company (Meralco) said that there will be a tentative 3 hours rotating brownouts in Metro Manila and nearby provinces. Which is due to "power supply deficiency”, according to their spokesperson Joe Zaldarriaga.

Affected by the rotating brownouts are: Manila, Marikina, Muntinlupa, Pasay, Navotas, Makati, Parañaque, Las Piñas, Mandaluyong, San Juan, Pasay, Pasig, Marikina, Pateros, Taguig, and Quezon City.  
The schedules are: Starting 10:27 a.m. -- Rosario, Cavite; Meycauayan, Calumpit, Hagonoy and Malolos in Bulacan.
Until 1 p.m. -- Paco, Quiapo, San Miguel, Ermita in Manila; parts of Mandaluyong, San Juan, Pasig Cities;  Santo Tomas in Batangas; San Pablo, Alaminos, Magdalena, Majayjay in Laguna; Dolores, Candelaria, Tiaong, Tayabas, Lucban, Sampaloc, Lucena and Pagbilao in Quezon.

The Meralco power interruptions affected some 240,000 customers.

P20 Billion Scam!

Kabataan Congresman Terry Ridon called for a congressional inquiry into the Grassroots Participatory Budgeting (GPB) funds distributed to the Local Government Units (LGUs). He said that there is another funding scam on the scale of the Disbursement Acceleration Program (DAP) and even pork barrel anomalys under the present administration.
He said that the Aquino administration distributed P20 billion under the GPB (Grassroots Participatory Budgeting) to local executives.

Some of it includes the:
- P403.5-million National Greening Program of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources.
- P869-million Health Facilities Enhancement Program of the Department of Health.
- P899-million Sustainable Livelihood Program of the Department of Social Welfare and Development.
- P76-million Sitio Electrification Program of the National Electrification Administration.
GPB started in 2013 and it reached P8.4 billion spread over 595 municipalities. For 2014, the budget under GPB soared to a total of P20.03 billion spread over 1,226 municipalities, almost on par with the budget for the now defunct Priority Development Assistance Fund (PDAF).
GPB is like PDAF where in the LGUs are asked to give a “wish list” of P15 million worth of projects that they want to be funded by the national government, through consultations with local basic sector organizations (BSOs) and civil society organizations (CSOs).
If approved by the DBM, the projects would then be included in the proposed budget of specific agencies.
