not to be fired only.. he must be lockdown also.. Firing Duque won't solve the problem. He is just following orders. But you supported ATL and were quiet with all the killings in this admin. Now you criticize kuno? Then claim you're not pro admin or opposition when you announced your intent for the presidency? Talagang you stand for nothing, no conviction. You're just dividing opposition.

Nanggagago na agad si lacson. Para namang hindi niya alam na co-terminus mga cabsec sa furparent nila. Hindi ba alam ni Lacson na ang mga appointed gov’t secretaries ay tapos na din ang serbisyo once na ang nag-appoint sa kanila ay tapos na ang term of office? The next leader can’t fire Duque, becoz Duque is no longer the secretary of health when the new leader takes office.

Naman Ping, the next President cannot fire Health Sec because it's an automatic resignation when the new administration assume.. Bakit hindi si PRRD ang I fire mo? iampinglacson .. don't block me please? Uulanin ng puna si ping lacson ng troll nito😂 ba't di na lang kasi si digs saka na yung down line ang tirahin para isahan na lang at pa tumpik tumpik pa😂😂😂 Command responsability para Feel ng tao..

Yes!
