PIA Press Release

Palace assures continuous service in AFP

Manila (21 June) -- Malacanang assured on Saturday that the chain of command of the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) will be unaffected when AFP Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Delfin Bangit bows out of the military service on Tuesday, more than a year ahead of his scheduled retirement.

In an interview with government-owned Radyo ng Bayan, Presidential Spokesperson Ricardo Saludo said the AFP has existing rules governing cases of sudden retirement of the Chief of Staff so as to ensure continuity in the service.

"There are rules and regulations in the AFP to continue the functions of the Chief of Staff in case he leaves and there is no specific person designated," Saludo said.

Bangit said on Friday that President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, who is also the Commander in Chief, has granted his request to retire from the military service effective Tuesday (June 22).

When asked who will be the next military chief, Saludo replied in Filipino: "Let's leave that for the President to announce."

"If ever she wants to designate (an acting Chief of Staff), that's within her power," he added. (PIA9-Pagadian City) [top]
