From the Presidential Spokesperson – On Executive Order No 51

We reiterate that the President has done all that he could within the bounds of his executive power to end the practice of illegal contractualization in the country. The signing of Executive Order No. 51 is a clear manifestation of his commitment to do away with this unlawful labor scheme.

It is now up to Congress to do the rest of the job in order to ensure that “endo” would be a thing of the past. We therefore leave all other contractualization matters to our counterparts in the Senate and in the House of Representatives for legislation.
