Secretary Rafael 'Ka Paeng' Mariano is not resigning from his position at the Department of Agrarian Reform.
DAR issued a statement amid malicious rumors circulating that Mariano, along with DSWD Secretary Judy Taguiwalo, NAPC chair Liza Maza and DOLE Undersecretary Joel Maglunsod will resign from the Duterte Cabinet.
These rumors are meant to disinform and mislead the public and sabotage the hard work and efforts of Secretary Mariano to achieve genuine land reform, the statement said.
Secretary Mariano is committed to enact genuine policy reforms at DAR, in pursuance to President Duterte's advocacy for real change, the statement added.
