Diclas, Yap Among Top Performing Officials Nationwide – RPMD

Out of 81 Governors in the country, Governor Dr. Melchor Daguines Diclas ranked 15th while Congressman Eric Yap is 7th among 251 District Representatives, both in terms of work performance rating.

This is based on the statistical research conducted by the RP- Mission and Development Foundation Inc. (RPMD).

Governor Diclas and Congressman Yap are the only Governor and Congressman from CAR who made it to the top list.

“For the year 2022, ratings and rankings are thoroughly assessed based on work performance. As the local chief executive, mayors have a diverse range of responsibilities. Governors are accountable for the execution of programs and initiatives, the enforcement of laws, and the implementation of the province development plan. Representatives are elected officials entrusted with representing constituents and enacting legislation,” RPMD said in a social media post.

The national performance evaluation survey for the year 2022 was conducted from November 27 to December 2, 2022, in each city or district in each region, it added.
