President Rodrigo Duterte has named Noel Felongco as the new chairperson of the Presidential Commission for the Urban Poor (PCUP).


Duterte signed Felongco’s appointment paper on February 1 but was released to the media on Thursday.

Felongco has served as president of the Partido Demokratiko Pilipino-Laban ng Bayan (PDP-Laban) Central Visayas and a former environment undersecretary.


Felongco replaced Terry Ridon, who was fired by Duterte for his frequent trips abroad.

Aside from Felongco, Duterte also appointed Romeo Jandugan as PCUP commissioner, two months after the chief executive fired four PCUP commissioners.

The President also named Ferdinand Bocobo as a member of the consultative committee that will review the 1987 Constitution.
