MANILA, Philippines — Lawyer Jose Calida has resigned as chairperson of the Commission on Audit.

This was confirmed by Executive Secretary Lucas Bersamin on Tuesday, not saying the reason behind Calida’s resignation.


“He tendered his resignation for many reasons but it’s up to him to later explain to you or publish to you what were his reasons,” he told reporters in an interview.

“We accepted that [resignation] with regret and we commended him for his patriotism for serving for a short while,” Bersamin added.


Prior to being appointed as COA chair, Calida served as the Solicitor General under the administration of Marcos’ predecessor, former President Rodrigo Duterte.

Also on Tuesday, lawyer Trixie Cruz-Angeles stepped down from her post as press secretary, citing health reasons.
