Na-demote! Duterte: Martin Andanar to be consultant for PTV-4


By Prince Golez

Communications Secretary Martin Andanar will remain a “consultant” should the reestablishment of the Office of the Press Secretary (OPS) push through, President Rodrigo Duterte said Tuesday.

“Consultant sa ano… Well, there’s so many things that they have to reconfigure their programs sa PTV 4,” Duterte said.

“Maraming baguhin diyan siguro to make it more responsive as a sounding board for the Republic of the Philippines parang ganun,” he added.

Talking to reporters in Malacañang, Duterte said he is considering the revival of the OPS to replace the Andanar-led Presidential Communications Operations Office.

The President had chosen Chief Presidential Counsel Salvador Panelo to replace senatorial bet Harry Roque Jr. as presidential spokesman and to run the OPS.
