Sec. Andanar stays for now
Malacañang said that Secretary Martin Andanar will continue to perform his duties as head of the Presidential Communications Operations Office (PCOO) until the Office of the Press Secretary (OPS) is up and running.
Presidential Spokesperson Salvador Panelo made the statement amid the reorganization in President Duterte's Cabinet.
In a text message, Panelo said that Andanar will continue serving as PCOO secretary for now.
“I think until such time as the OPS is created, the PCOO with him at the helm is still operational as an entity,” he said.
In an interview in Bali, Indonesia this week, Andanar said that the transition team in the PCOO is now ready. He earlier said that he will accept the any new assignment that the President will give him if he knows he can do it.
