Important notice[edit]

The government section of the "Outline of the Philippines" needs to be checked, corrected, and completed -- especially the subsections for the government branches.

When the country outlines were created, temporary data (that matched most of the countries but not all) was used to speed up the process. Those countries for which the temporary data does not match must be replaced with the correct information.

Please check that this country's outline is not in error.

If you have any questions or comments, please contact The Transhumanist .

Thank you.

Article Organization[edit]

Hi. Let me start by saying I'm confused by this article's use of the word "Departments" in the headings referring to the Legislative, Executive, and Judicial Branches. I'm not sure how this influences the article coverage of the Judicial and Legislative branches, but it certainly creates a problem in the coverage of the "Executive Department" (which IMHO should be "Executive Branch"). To be specific: the article effectively reduces the executive branch to only the 19 Executive_departments_of_the_Philippines. There are thus no mentions of the three Constitutional Commissions, or of the various (non-department) Offices attached to the office of the President (say, OPAPP, or the MMDA, or the CCP, or the NCCA), which I believe all fall under the Executive Branch and are significant enough to merit mention in this article. (I'm uncertain if the control of Government-owned and controlled corporations also falls under the executive branch. At any rate, I feel GOCCs should at least be mentioned in a sentence in this article.) In light of these issues and others which might arise, may I request a broad discussion at Wikipedia_talk:Tambayan_Philippines#Organization_of_Government_of_the_Philippines_and_related_articles of issues regarding the organization of articles falling under the purview of the Government of the Philippines? Thanks. - Alternativity (talk) 02:26, 15 June 2016 (UTC)
