MMDA Chair Francis Tolentino asked to resign because of worsening traffic

Any guesses where he is and what he's doing?


( The seeming absence of MMDA Chairman Francis Tolentino amid the worsening Metro Manila traffic urged the labor organization Public Services Labor Independent Confederation (PSLINK) to call for his resignation.


A petition was started by the group which aims to gather 10,000 signatures to be submitted to the President. They stated that the heavy congestion around the metro leads to trillions worth of losses, yet the MMDA has no concrete solutions to address it.


According to a report by the Philippine Star, PSLINK suspects that the chairman's absence and inefficiency may be connected to his plans to run for senator in 2016.


In the past week, Tolentino was spotted in different areas around the country. It has been reported that he was with P-Noy alongside cabinet officials, namely Sec. Mar Roxas and Sec. Leila De Lima in Cebu City


The MMDA chief hasn't confirmed nor denied anything, but we know one thing for sure: The traffic in Metro Manila will last for at least the next 15 years.
