Despite many government positions that still need to be filled up, Malacanang said on Sunday it will abide by the Commission on Elections (Comelec) appointment ban in connection with the upcoming Oct. 25 Barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan polls.
”We will respect the appointment ban,” Deputy Presidential Spokesperson Abigail Valte said in a radio interview over State-run Radyo ng Bayan.
Comelec Resolution No. 9019 promulgated on Aug. 31, 2010 sets a ban on the “issuance of appointments, promotions, creation of new positions, or giving of salary increases in government offices, agencies or instrumentalities” during the election period that started on Sept. 25.
Valte said there are quite a number of vacant positions left to be filled but these have to wait until the Comelec appointment ban is over.
She said Executive Secretary Paquito “Jojo” Ochoa has issued an order designating officers-in-charge in some government agencies so as not to interrupt public service. (PNA)
