MANILA, Philippines — Days before stepping down, President Rodrigo Duterte has designated two new officers-in-charge (OIC) at the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) and the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR).

The new officers-in-charge of DAR and DENR are David Erro and Joselin Marcus Fragada, respectively.

According to DAR, Erro took over acting Secretary Bernie Cruz’s position as the latter’s appointment is “considered bypassed” since the Congress adjourned on June 20.

Cruz returned to serving as an undersecretary of DAR.

Erro, meanwhile, will serve as OIC secretary until June 30 — also Duterte’s last day in office — as incoming secretary Conrado Estrella III will take over as DAR’s chief.

On the other hand, Fragada replaced DENR acting Secretary Jim Sampulna.
