1 min read
The tough-talking President of the Republic of the Philippines, Pres. Rodrigo Duterte announced through the media that starting on Monday, he will hire thousands of government officials to replace all the appointees of former Pres. Aquino.

Pres. Duterte’s decision came after his press conference in Davao City announcing that thousands of government officials should vacate their jobs starting on Monday.

According to the 71-year-old President all presidential appointees of Pres. Aquino which also includes government corporations must vacate their posts because the President believed that there are continued corruptions in various Government posts.

During the Sunday’s press conference of Pres. Duterte he noted that starting Monday he would declare all positions in the government vacant.

Cabinet Secretaries and career officials are exempted from the order but the former Davao City Mayor-turned President Duterte specifically mentioned the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) and the Land Transportation Office (LTO) as agencies he has deemed to be affected by corruption.
