“Yes he quit,” he told INQUIRER.net in a text message.

Andanar, however, refused to give details of Flores’ resignation, saying Executive Secretary Salvador Medialdea should be the one to answer it.

INQUIRER.net has sought the comment of Medialdea but has not responded as of posting time.

Flores, who took his oath of office before President Rodrigo Duterte on August 1 at Malacañang, is the first Cabinet official to quit from the Duterte administration.

It remains unclear, however, if President Duterte had accepted his resignation. IDL
