PGMA says thank you to countrymen

MANILA, June 1 (PNA) -- With only 29 days remaining to the end of her term, President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo continues to go around the country to check on the various government projects and to thank the people for their support to her administration, a Palace official said on Tuesday.

"It's still business as usual for the President... she visits the provinces to look into projects especially infrastructures, more notably school rooms in time for the opening of classes next week," Press Undersecretary Rogelio Peyuan said.

"Hindi niya nakakalimutang magpasalamat sa bawat lugar na pinupuntahan niya. Dahil umikli ang kanyang calendar of activities, nagkakaroon siya ng 5-10 minutes na pagkakataon na kausapin ang mga kababayan natin (She never forgets to thank the people in every place she visits. Because of her tight schedule, she sees to it that she has at least 5-10 minutes to talk to them)," he added.

Aside from the usual activities, Peyuan said the President is also monitoring the transition report of the transition team.

"The President is also going through the report submitted by the different agencies in time for a smooth transition to the incoming administration," he said.

Peyuan said the President and her family have yet to pack their personal belongings.

"There's enough time to do that," he said.

President Arroyo will step down at noon of June 30 when presidential frontrunner Sen. Benigno "Noynoy" Aquino III will take his oath as the country's 15th president. (PNA)
