Transparency and accountability are essential components of democratic government and governance, nationally and locally. In recognition of their core significance, this note (as part of a larger study) explores the levels of commitment to them by councillors in a municipality in the Philippines. It does this in terms of a five-point Likert scale which enables the levels to be calculated using various qualitative data and insights. The levels are found largely to be moderate to high, suggesting a firm commitment overall, but with more action being essential to ensure its reflection in high levels of actual adherence.
