MANILA, Philippines — President Rodrigo Duterte on Thursday announced that a 24-hour hotline will be set up to receive the complaints of Filipino citizens.

"I am setting up a complaint office 24 hours manned by 10 operators over the entire country," Duterte told his Cabinet members during their first meeting.

The concerns or complaints of Filipinos will be relayed to the proper government agencies through a hotline.

"The number would be 8888 and they can report to me any complaint and there will be a manager who will read their complaints with the proper office," the new president said.

During his term as Davao City mayor, Duterte introduced a round-the-clock emergency hotline in the city.

Duterte took his oath of office on Thursday as the 16th president of the country. The new president vowed to restore public trust in the government and its leaders.
