MANILA, Philippines – Bumaba sa puwesto si Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) chairman Atty. Cheloy Velicaria-Garafil bilang LTFRB chairperson nitong Huwebes, Oktubre 6 makaraang tanggapin ang panibagong tungkulin sa Office of the Press Secretary.

“Today, October 7, 2022, I tendered my resignation as LTFRB Chairperson as I have accepted the offer to help in the Office of the Press Secretary as its Undersecretary and OIC (officer-in-charge),” ayon kay Garafil, na dating journalist, sa kanyang statement.

“This is a great honor and privilege and I thank the President for this opportunity to once again work with him in his administration to serve the Filipino people,” dagdag pa ng dating LTFRB chairperson.

Magugunitang nitong Hunyo 2022, si Garafil ay hinirang ni Pangulong Ferdinand Marcos Jr. na pamunuan ang LTFRB.

Naglingkod siya bilang service director sa Committee on Rules ng House of Representatives.

Nagsilbi rin siya bilang prosecutor para sa Department of Justice (DOJ) at State Solicitor para sa Office of the Solicitor General (OSG).

Nauna nang sinabi ni Marcos na may papangalanang bagong press secretary sa susunod na linggo, para punan ang nabakanteng posisyon ni Trixie Cruz-Angeles na nagbitiw dahil sa kadahilanang pangkalusugan.

Wala pang ipinapahayag na papalit sa iniwang puwesto ni dating LTFRB Chair. Atty Cheloy Garafil. Santi Celario
