    Arrow "... no less ..."

    Dear all,

    1."... no less than the President himself has articulated"

    What does this phrase mean?

    2. What does "Barangay" mean?

    Thanks

    1 It serves to emphasise the importance of the president.
    2 No idea- it seems to be a place name and a Filipino word.

    With thanks to your really helpful answers:

    Unfortunately I can do nothing with the word "Barangay" cos it has "gay" in it

    & I live in Iran so ....!!! It's blocked even in Wikipedia.org
