PRES­I­DENT Ro­drigo Duterte has ap­pointed Lieu­tenant Gen­eral Roz­zano Briguez as the new com­mand­ing gen­eral of the Philip­pine Air Force (PAF).

Duterte ap­proved Briguez's new ap­point­ment to the PAF ef­fec­tive De­cem­ber 5, ac­cord­ing to a let­ter ad­dressed to De­fense Sec­re­tary Delfin Loren­zana.

Briguez will re­place Lieu­tenant Gen­eral Galileo Ger­ard Kin­ta­nar, who is set to re­tire from the mil­i­tary ser­vice in Jan­uary next year but opted for early re­tire­ment.

A mem­ber of the Philip­pine Mil­i­tary Academy Class of 1986, Briguez served as head of the Armed Forces of the Philip­pines's (AFP) Western Com­mand, a po­si­tion he also took over from Kin­ta­nar in 2017.

A copy of the De­cem­ber 5 let­ter con­cern­ing Briguez's new post was re­leased by Mala­cañang on Thurs­day, De­cem­ber 6.

Also on Thurs­day, Palace re­leased the ap­point­ment pa­per of Lieu­tenant Gen­eral Ber­samin Madri­gal, who was named the new AFP chief-of-staff.

Madri­gal's des­ig­na­tion as re­place­ment of out­go­ing AFP chief-of­staff Gen­eral Car­l­ito Galvez Jr., who is set to re­tire on De­cem­ber 12, was an­nounced by Lo­cal Gov­ern­ment Sec­re­tary Ed­uardo Año on Wed­nes­day, De­cem­ber 5.
