Mayor wants ‘best man’ as Quitain’s substitute-A A +A
Wednesday, December 18, 2013
DAVAO City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte said he is looking for the "best man" to replace the post vacated by former councilor and current City Administrator Melchor Quitain at the City Council.
Duterte has yet to name Quitain's suitable replacement that would come from the Muslim community.
"I'm looking for the best man. As long as we decide on a person who's good, a good, Muslim and who can help the city," he said.
"Meron na tayong lumad representative. This time kailangan ng city ng isang representative from the Muslim community," he added.
Duterte said that he might announce his choice in February or March next year.
Quitain's resignation took effect on September 9. His resignation did not come as a surprise as Mayor Duterte already announced that he is eyeing Quitain as his city administrator. (ANC)
