MANILA, Philippines- Magreretiro na sa Commission on Elections (Comelec) si Comelec Director of the Education and Information Department James Jimenez matapos ang pagseserbisyo ng halos dalawang dekada.

Sa pahayag ngayong Sabado, inanunsyo ni Comelec Chairman George Garcia na ang Commission En Banc ay inaprubaham ang hirit ni Jimenez na magretiro sa ginanap na Regular Meeting noong August 31, 2022, na kanyang inaplayan sa Comelec Personnel Department noong Agosto 2, 2022

“This effectively grants Dir. Jimenez’ intent to avail of the optional retirement as Director IV of the Education and Information Department effective September 15, 2022, as allowed under Civil Service Rules,” sabi ni Garcia.

Si Jimenez ay naging director ng Comelec’s Education and Information Department simula 2004 at poll body spokesperson simula 2007 hanggang Mayo.

Na-relieve si Jimenez bilang spokesman dahil sa kontrobersya na nagresulta sa kanselasyon ng final presidential at vice presidential debates.

Pinalitan siya ni law department director Rex Laudiangco bilang acting spokesperson ng poll body, ngunit nanatili bilang Comelec director ng Education and Information.

“The whole Comelec family expresses its gratitude and appreciation to Dir. Jimenez for his long exemplary service to the Nation through the Commission. We wish him all the best as he embarks on this new chapter in his life,” sabi pa ni Garcia.

“We shall now start the vetting process even in an acting capacity,” aniya pa. Jocelyn Tabangcura-Domenden
