Regarding on distribution of Philsys or National ID as of February 9,  we are hitting 65 percent which means our delay is now only about 600,000 so, more or less updated na tayo and continuously even Saturday and Sunday nagde-deliver ako sa office so, makakaasa kayo na lahat yan makakarating sa inyo as soon as possible, out of the 9 million that we receive as of last week ang nai deliver na natin ay 6.3 million.
