Roque: Valdez, La Vina out of SSS.

Presidential spokesperson Harry Roque on Monday announced that the terms of Social Security System chairperson Amado Valdez and commissioner Jose Gabriel 'Pompee' La Vina will no longer be renewed.

"The Executive Secretary has formally informed Mr. Jose Gabriel M. La Vina, Pompee, as well as Mr. Amado D. Valdez, that their term of office, both of which expired 30 June 2017 as commissioners of the SSS, will not be renewed," Roque said in a press briefing.

Roque said there is 'no reason' for the termination but that it is within the president's prerogative.

President Rodrigo Duterte appointed La Vina in November 2016 while Valdez was appointed in October 2016. They had been staying in a holdover capacity.
