From the Philippine News Agency's December 30, 2021 article Duterte signs law creating Department of Migrant Workers
The creation and establishment of the Department of Migrant Workers is one of Duterte’s priorities after he certified it as an urgent bill in March.
Duterte has repeatedly pushed for the passage of a bill mandating the creation of the Department of Migrant Workers, even mentioning it in his final State-of-the-Nation Address on July 26 this year.

Certified as an urgent bill last May, Republic Act No. 11641 will create the Department of Migrant Workers that, in effect, merges agencies that deal with matters affecting OFWs.
we can see that in the Philippines the president can certify a bill as "urgent".
It sounds like it could be a very handy tool for a president to get a congress to focus!
Question: What is the origin of bill "urgency" in the Philippines, how does it work and how widespread is this feature in other democracies?
Note that searching for "Duterte urgent" returns quite a large number of additional examples.
