Armed Forces of the Philippines chief is next Marina Administrator - Duterte.

President Rodrigo Duterte announced on Monday that Armed Forces of the Philippines Chief of Staff Gen. Rey Leonardo Guerrero would be the next Maritime Industry Authority (Marina) Administrator.

'Yang si Jagger (Guerrero) pagkatapos niyan, siya 'yung maghawak ng Marina na pinaalis ko kay sige travel,' Duterte said in a speech before government troops in Mawab, Compostella Valley.

(After Guerrero is done, he will be in charge of Marina after I fired the one who was always travelling.)

Earlier, Duterte had extended the term of Guerrero until April 24, 2018. Guerrero was supposed to have retired from military service since he already reached the compulsory retirement age of 56 last December 17.

Guerrero, a graduate of the Philippine Military Academy 'Maharlika' Class of 1984, will be among the growing list of retired military men serving in the government.
