Navotas Rep. Toby Tiangco

The United Nationalist Alliance tagged the Palace’s using of five constitutional agencies as “fiscal dictatorship” amid the controversies surrounding the administration in connection with the pork barrel and the most recent, the disbursement acceleration program.

Navotas Rep. and UNA Secretary General Toby Tiangco said that the Palace is pressuring the five agencies by controlling its funds for 2014.

Aside from the Commission on Elections and Commission on Audit, the other agencies are the constitutional fiscal autonomy group consisting of the Civil Service Commission, Judiciary and the Ombudsman.

Tiangco said that by controlling its funds, the Palace is violating the fiscal autonomy guaranteed by the Constitution.
