President Rodrigo Duterte replaced Bernie Cruz as interim secretary of the Department of Agrarian Reform (DA), just a week before his term ends.
According to a memorandum of June 20, 2022 from Executive Secretary Salvador Medialdea, DAR Undersecretary David Erro is appointed as Officer in Charge of the agency until June 30.
Cruz was appointed acting DAR Secretary in November 2021 after Secretary John Castriciones resigned to run for Senate.
President-elect Ferdinand Marcos Jr. chose the outgoing Abono party representative, Conrado Estrella III, to head the DAR.
