Layug, mananatili sa pwesto ng 30-araw
MANANATILI pa ng 30 araw sa Department of Energy (DoE) si Undersecretary Jay Layug.
Ito ay makaraang magsumite si Usec. Layug ng kanyang letter of resignation kay Energy Secretary Jericho Petilla.
“I just spoke with Secretary Rene Almendras. He just handed his letter of resignation, I think, yesterday. So he resigned. But I understand also that he is going to be retained—both Undersecretary (Josefina Patricia) Asirit and Undersecretary Layug will be asked to stay for 30 days during the transition to help ease the transition and also to brief incoming Secretary (Jericho) Petilla on the Energy department,” ayon kay Presidential spokesman Edwin Lacierda.
Sinabi ng opisyal na kusang-loob na nagbitiw sa puwesto si Usec. Layug dahil batid naman nito na standard procedure para sa isang Cabinet secretary ang mamili ng kanyang sariling team.
“And that’s the same courtesy that we’re according everyone. So Secretary Petilla would like to form his own team and, therefore, it was but proper for both Undersecretary Asirit, who also tendered her resignation, and also Undersecretary Jay Layug to tender his resignation,” anito.
Iwas-pusoy naman si Sec. Lacierda na linawin ang ulat na naunang italaga si Usec. Ramon Allan Oca bago pa magbitiw sa puwesto si Usec. Layug.
Sinasabing Oktubre 31 ay itinalaga na ng Malakanyang si Usec. Oca kapalit ni Usec. Layug gayong nasa puwesto pa ang huli.
“I don’t know what you will make of it. As far as we’re concerned, the source document that we have is the letter of resignation from Undersecretary Layug,” aniya pa.
