President Rodrigo Duterte has designated Executive Secretary Salvador Medialdea as the government’s Officer-in-Charge (OIC) while he is in Singapore and Papua New Guinea.

Duterte signed Special Order 1265 last Friday, naming Medialdea as OIC from November 12 to 18. A copy of the order was made available to media on Monday.


“The Executive Secretary shall act as OIC to take care of the day-to-day operations in the Office of the President and to oversee the general administration of the Executive Department,” Duterte said in his order.

Duterte is set to leave the country on Monday evening for Singapore to attend the 30th Southeast Asian Nations (Asean) Meet from Tuesday to Friday. He will then head to Papua New Guinea on Friday night to attend the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (Apec).


The President is expected to return to the country on Sunday evening. /je
