Budget Secretary Benjamin Diokno confirms that President Rodrigo Duterte has fulfilled his promise to increase both the base pay and allowance of soldiers and policemen in the inclusion of the hike in the 2017 national budget.

Without disclosing details, Diokno said he would announce the figures during a press conference in Malacañang.

Duterte included in his Budget Action Message that the military, the police, and other uniformed personnel will receive rice subsidy in 2017 under conditional implementation.

Presidential Communications Secretary Martin Andanar includes in his year-end video report that Duterte kept his word to the Philippine National Police and the Armed Forces of the Philippines in doubling their salary.
