In papers dated March 6, 2019, the President appointed sacked Port of Manila District Collector Vener Baquiran, retired Lt. Gen. Donato San Juan II, former superintendent of the Philippine Military Academy, and retired Brig. Gen. Raniel Ramiro, former chief of the Peace and Development Office of the Armed Forces of the Philippines.
