Chairman & Head of Agency

Martin "Bobot" B. Diño has dedicated his life and career in public service as a man for the people.

He began his career in local governance at a young age. From 1978 to 1986, he was Area Coordinator of the City Government of Quezon City conducting basic orientation to local elected officials on barangay administration. He was directly involved in the dynamics of the said local government unit and its citizens.

Mr. Diño is also a pioneer member of the PDP-Laban upon its inception in 1984, as well as a trainer for Federalism. An adept instructor, He has circled the rural areas of the Philippines not only to orient the grassroots sector of the party's vision, goals and principles, but also to educate Filipinos on the concept of Federalism and how it directly benefits our countrymen. He became Secretary General of PDP-Laban in October, 2015 up to the present.

He again served the local government as Barangay Captain of San Antonio in Quezon City for three terms, from 1994 to 2007, lending his knowledge and experience in local governance and as a member of the PDP-Laban. He was able to establish in his community an efficient and sustainable barangay administration which focused on discipline, anti-crime and anti-drug policies. It was during his tenure that his community achieved the status of a drug-free barangay in Quezon City.

Mr. Diño is also currently Chairman of the Volunteers Against Crime and Corruption or VACC. He was also VACC President from 2000 to 2010 and VACC Spokesman from 1998 to 2000. Unlike other non-government organizations, the VACC actively took part in filing and initiating high-profile cases against erring and corrupt government officials and employees. Among these cases were the plunder case against former president Manila mayor Joseph Estrada and the unexplained wealth case against former PNP chief Alan Purisima.

On heinous crimes, the VACC under his watch also actively took part in the long drawn Vizconde massacre case and the conviction of US serviceman Lance Corporal Daniel Smith in the 2005 Subic rape case. Moreover, Mr. Diño personally took active part in the filing of charges and conviction of Leo Echagaray, the first Filipino who was meted the death penalty in 1993 for raping his 10-year old daughter.

In September 2016, Mr. Diño was appointed Chairman of the Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority by the man whom he gave way to, to run as President of the Philippines in the elections, the same man who is now our President – Rodrigo Roa Duterte.
