The official press ID of journalists covering Malacañang became the subject of criticism and ridicule after the discovery by some holders of the glaring English grammar mistakes in the inscriptions on the backside.

The Presidential Communications Operations Office (PCOO) has ordered the recall of the ID issued to media people covering Malacañang.
PCOO Secretary Martin Andanar is signatory of the ID.
In a message to reporters on Friday, Andanar said he has ordered an investigation of protocols violated concerning the ID.
He also said the backflip of the ID was not shown to him by his staff, the PCOO’s International Press Center did not return the final design for his approval, used an electronic signature without his permission, and used the wrong e-signature. —With a report from Virgil Lopez/LBG/KG, GMA News
