Parlade, the spokesperson for the National Task Force to End Local Communist Armed Conflict (NTF-ELCAC), listed the following top schools as hotbeds for recruitment:

  • University of the Philippines (UP)

  • University of Santo Tomas (UST)
  • Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila (PLM)
  • De La Salle University (DLSU)
  • University of Makati

According to an article from GMA, Parlade expressed that due to the DND-UP accord, the military faced hardships in confirming these recruitments. But, because the 30-year-old accord was severed, Parlade said:

Mas mapag-aaralan ang nangyayaring recruitment ng CPP-NPA sa UP matapos maibasura ang UP-DND Accord”.
