CSC reminds government officials to behave or else face the consequences

Manila, Philippines - The Civil Service Commission (CSC) warns public officials about the behavior they should maintain as government representatives.

This was after the Twitter affair of Foreign Affairs Secretary Teodoro Locsin, Jr.  the 2 reporters from different newspapers.

According to CSC commissioner Aileen Lizada, it is clear from Republic Act 6713 or the Code of Conduct and Ethical Standards for Public Officials and Employees that all governments are obligated to be courteous and long-suffering in public service. Violators may fine, suspend, or terminate from his or her position if violate the law.

Lizada says the public office is a public trust.  Many trust that they are doing the right thing.  So just a gentle reminder to everyone.

Locsin's head was recalled warmly by Inquirer reporter Jhesset Enano after criticizing President Rodrigo Duterte's absence at the recent ASEAN Summit ceremony.

Locsin also echoed the tweet of Philippine Star reporter Marc Jayson Cayabyab reminding him of the proper conduct of government officials.

Locsin has since deleted the previous tweets but did not apologize for the incident.

According to the Center for Media Freedom and Responsibility (CMFR), Locsin has the right process in place of any media person.

According to UP political science assistant professor Jean Franco, Locsin is a former media so he knows how to deal with journalists.

The attitude of the country's top diplomats is likely to accompany the administration.
