MMDA head of clearing operations Francis Martinez noted that the clearing went smoothly and that street vendors voluntarily removed their stalls that were previously mounted on the road.
 
“There are no reports of any untoward incidents in the clearing operations. The stall owners are every cooperative and some of them are not really allowed to sell their goods on the side streets so they removed their stalls,” said Martinez.
