DAVAO CITY, Philippines — President Rodrigo Duterte ordered his officials spokesperson to defer the announcement of the top officials who will be terminated from service.
Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque is certain the soon to be axed top official is not from Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO)
“I can make the confirmation that the official who I was tasked to announce and belatedly told to hold in abeyance is not from the PCSO,” said Roque.
Roque said he received a message ordering him to “hold in abeyance” the announcement which was expected.
“Also, as of 7:00 this morning, I read a text instructing me to hold in abeyance announcement of who it is that the President will sack next,” Roque said in a press briefing in Malacañang.
Roque added “Of course, this is not the first time it has happened. When he announced that he will fire an entire commission, he did not mention which commission first and it took couple of days before I was authorized to make the announcement.” Though he did not divulge why it was deffered but added that the chief executive was studying the legislative charter of the agency which the official leads.
