Starting this month, the National Commission on Indigenous Peoples (NCIP) Region 2 will have a new regional director in the person of Atty. Amador Batay-an, former regional director of NCIP-Cordillera Administrative Region.
Batay-an will replace Director Ruben Bastero who will be assigned at the NCIP- Ilocos region.
According to Ernesto Mendoza, NCIP planning officer, the reshuffling of regional directors is implemented pursuant to a resolution issued by the NCIP en banc to give chances to all the regional directors to comply with the Career Executive Service Officer (CESO) requirement of the government.
Mendoza added that this is the first time that the NCIP will reshuffle regional directors. “In fact, five out of our seven bureau directors will be affected and most of our regional directors will be assigned to the different regional offices,” Mendoza said.
Based on the resolution, the reshuffling of NCIP officers is experimental and the regional directors’ new assignments will only last for one year, Mendoza said.
Atty. Batay-an is a holder of CESO III eligibility and Director Bastero is also a CESO eligible. (TCB/PIA 2)
