INUTUSAN ng Palasyo si National Youth Commission Chairman Ronald Cardema na bakantehin ang puwesto at isumite ang lahat ng hawak niyang dokumento sa Office of the President.
Ang direktiba, ayon kay Presidential Spokesman Salvador Panelo, ay kasunod nang pag-abandona ni Cardema sa kanyang posisyon nang maghain ng petition for substitution bilang first nominee ng Duterte Youth party-list sa Comelec.
“The Palace therefore requires Mr. Cardema to vacate his office forthwith and turn over all official papers, documents, and properties in his possession to the Office of the President,” ani Panelo.
“We understand that Mr. Cardema’s petition has yet to be approved by the Comelec as the body is still currently tackling the procedural and substantive legalities of the same. Regardless of the outcome, we deem that Mr. Cardema has already abandoned his present position because his act of filing the petition absolutely reflects his intention to relinquish his office and exposes his desire to serve the government in a different capacity,” ani Panelo.
Magtatalaga aniya ng bagong NYC chairman si Pangulong Duterte na magsusulong ng mga tunay na interes at kapakanan ng mga kabataan sa bansa. “The President shall soon appoint a person who can advance the genuine interests and welfare of our country’s youth as the new chairperson of the NYC,” dagdag ni Panelo.
