President Rodrigo Duterte advised commissioners of the Energy Regulatory Board (ERC) to resign, following the alleged suicide of a colleague over the supposed corruption in the regulatory body.
“I am demanding that they all resign,” President Duterte said during a press briefing with the Philippine media delegation who accompanied him as he attended the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Summit.
Special Assistant to the President Bong Go confirmed the President’s directive on Monday, following the death of Bids and Awards Committee Chairman Atty. Francisco “Jun” Villa Jr. early this month.
The current commissioners of the ERC are Alfredo Non, Atty. Gloria Victoria Yap-Taruc, Atty. Josefina Patricia Asirit, and Geronimo Sta. Ana.
