PCIJ’s information website is a one-stop portal on Philippine politics
and government Launched in 2001, it initially carried data not readily
available about members of the House of Representatives.
Today the site provides easy-to-read databases containing the following
information about the members of the 9th to the 12th House of Representatives:
personal data, education, career, political affiliations, legislative
performance (bills filed), business interests, campaign expenditures,
and relatives in government. Similar data for Cabinet officials,
governors, and mayors will soon be available on the site. Information
on the legislature will be updated to include how legislators spent
their pork barrel funds.
The site also has sections intended to educate citizens on issues
like the structures of government agencies, the assets of officials,
and local budgets. It provides a quick guide to getting information
from government and tips on how citizens can assert their right
Original documents not ordinarily available to the public — such
as government reports — are regularly uploaded.
