MANILA – President Rodrigo Duterte has sacked 3 Department of Social Welfare and Development officials, as confirmed by the Palace, Monday, Nov. 19.
Executive Secretary Salvador Medialdea confirmed that DSWD Undersecretaries Maria Lourdes Turalde-Jarabe, Mae Ancheta-Templa, and Hope Hervilla were fired by the President.
When asked if the reason was for being left-leaning of the three undersecretaries  Medialdea said, “No. [It was for the] formation of a good team.”
Duterte last Friday announced that will fire more officials when he returns to the Philippines from his week-long foreign trip to attend the APEC Summit.
