PRESIDENT Rodrigo Duterte has appointed Lieutenant General Noel Clement as the new Armed Forces chief of staff, his spokesman said on Friday.

Mr. Clement, commander of the Central Command of Central Visayas in Cebu, will replace General Benjamin Madrigal, who will retire on Sept. 28.

The military under his command would intensify anti-insurgency operations, Mr. Clement told reporters.

One of Mr. Duterte’s marching orders is to end communist rebellion, a task that is not new to Mr. Clement, Mr. Panelo said.

Mr. Clement was the commander of the Philippine Army’s 10th Infantry Division assigned to the Davao region before he was assigned to the Central Command in November 2018. — Marc Wyxzel C. Dela Paz
