President Rodrigo Duterte has entrusted the administration of his workplace and the manager department to a gaggle led by Justice Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre II as a result of the particular person who needs to be manning the fort while he’s away, Executive Secretary Salvador Medialdea, might be accompanying him abroad.
Before leaving for Cambodia on Wednesday (May 10), Duterte assigned as members of the caretaker committee Aguirre, performing Environment Secretary Roy Cimatu and Undersecretary Jesus Melchor Quitain.
They might be in charge of the day after day operations of the Office of the President and the overall administration of the manager division from Thursday (May 11) to Sunday (May 14) while Medialdea is cooling his heels in Cambodia, Hong Kong and China with Duterte.
While it’s Aguirre and his group who’s overseeing the manager department, Medialdea has been designated on paper as officer in charge while Duterte is away.
Under earlier administrations, it was the Executive Secretary who takes care of Palace-related issues at any time when the President was out of the nation.
