‘Di pinaabot ng June 30! Duterte sacks Bernie Cruz as acting DAR chief

President Rodrigo Duterte has replaced Bernie Cruz as acting Secretary of the Department of Agrarian Reform (DA), barely a week before his term ends.

According to a memorandum dated June 20, 2022 by Executive Secretary Salvador Medialdea, DAR Undersecretary David Erro is designated as the agency’s Officer-in-Charge until June 30.

Cruz was appointed as acting DAR Secretary in November 2021 after Secretary John Castriciones quit his post to run for the Senate.

President-elect Ferdinand Marcos Jr. has picked outgoing Abono party-list Rep. Conrado Estrella III to head DAR.
