Commission on Higher Education chairperson Patricia Licuanan said Monday she will follow the order for her to stop attending Cabinet meetings but will continue to perform her role as commission chief.
Licuanan said in a statement that the instruction for her to stop attending Cabinet meetings was sent by Cabinet Secretary Leoncio Evasco Jr. through a text message on Sunday.
Licuanan was appointed by former president Benigno Aquino III and her term will end in 2018.
President Rodrigo Duterte has earlier endorsed his former professor, Jose David Lapuz, as head of CHED.
