EMERSON Carlos, Assistant General Manager of the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA), will temporarily sit as officer in charge (OIC) following the resignation of Chairman Francis Tolentino.
Prior to his resignation, Tolentino issued a memorandum designating Carlos as OIC.
The order took effect October 1 but was only received by Carlos on Wednesday.
Carlos vowed to continue the programs that Tolentino implemented.
On Thursday, Carlos met with Police Director General Ricardo Marquez to discuss preparations for the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Summit to be held in November.
