MANILA, Philippines- The service of employees and officials of the Office of the President (OP) whose appointments are coterminous with the previous appointing authority will continue until the end of the year.
Executive Secretary Lucas Bersamin mentioned this during his first flag ceremony at the Palace grounds on Monday.
Bersamin was accompanied by Presidential Management Staff Secretary Zenaida Angping, Special Assistant to the President Antonio Lagdameo, Office of the Press Secretary Officer-in-Charge Attorney Cheloy Garafil, and other key Malakanyang officials.
May lagda ni Bersamin, nakasaad sa Memorandum Order No. 7 na “in the exigency of the service and to prevent any disruption in the delivery of government services, all employees and officials in the Office of the President (OP) Proper, whose issued appointments were coterminous with the previous appointing authority, shall remain in service and continue to perform their duties and functions until 31 December 2022, unless their appointments are sooner revoked, resignations accepted, replacements appointed, or reappointments issued.”
The said Memorandum was signed on September 27, 2022.
On the other hand, in Bersamin’s speech at the flag-raising ceremony, Bersamin called on Malakanyang employees to be “true to your oaths of office.”
Binigyang-diin nito na ” one is undeserving of the post if he/she halts to be “just and lawful.”
“Public service becomes meaningless and empty if the public servant is not dedicated to this kind of intentional obeyance. We must endeavor to uphold the rule of law in every action that we take in the discharge of our duties and responsibilities,” wika ni Bersamin.
“Always bear in mind that we are undeserving of our positions if we cease to be just and lawful. We also declare our pride in being Filipinos so today’s flag raising should not be seen as a mere ceremony but a solemn remembrance of our glorious past and that is a result to bring our people to a better future,” dagdag na pahayag nito.
In addition, Bersamin encouraged employees to work with sincerity and compassion.
“When we are compassionate, we must be sincere. We cannot serve the purpose of being compassionate if we have no sincerity in our hearts,” ayon kay Bersamin. Chris Joseph
