PRESIDENT Rodrigo Duterte has decided to fire the commissioners of the Presidential Commission for the Urban Poor (PCUP), but not abolish the entire agency.

“With sincerest regrets I would like to correct the statement I made on the Presidential Commission for the Urban Poor (PCUP) during this morning’s press briefing. It is to fire, and not to abolish the Commission,” Roque clarified in a statement to Palace reporters yesterday.

“He will fire all commissioners and chair is a commissioner too,” he added.
