MANILA, Philippines — President Rodrigo Duterte has designated Executive Secretary Salvador Medialdea as the government’s officer-in-charge (OIC) while he is in Busan for the 2019 Asean-Korea Summit.

Duterte is scheduled to fly to South Korea on Sunday night to attend the two-day summit and meet with Korean President Moon Jae-in.

Under Special Order 1346, Duterte tasked Medialdea to “ensure the continuity of government service” and to “take care of day-to-day operations” as OIC of the executive department while the President is in Korea.

“All acts of the Executive Secretary for and on behalf of the President pursuant to this Order shall be deemed acts of the President unless disapproved or reprobated by the President,” the order said.
