Angping still awaits successor

By Trina Ibarle-Orquiza

PHILIPPINE Sports Commission chief Harry Angping tendered his courtesy resignation last week, requesting Malacanang to name his successor soon so the new chairman could help the national team prepare for the Guangzhou Asian Games in November.

As of yesterday, Angping was still waiting.

"Honestly, wala akong idea. Mukhang wala pa," said Angping, who took over from Butch Ramirez in February 2009.

"I hope they appoint a chairman soon because of the deadline and the timetable of the Asian Games. It might be too short a time for the new chairman to prepare for the Asian Games," he said, adding the new PSC chief will have to pick up on the preparations, funding of athletes, as well as training and preparations for the Nov. 12-27 Asiad.

"It's too tight. You need one month to acquaint yourself (with the job) and meet with the POC and NSAs. Baka mabitin ang trabaho," Angping said, adding he would stay on the job until his replacement is named.

"It is my duty and obligation to follow the wishes of the (new) president. But I would really prefer that they appoint a new chairman para tuloy-tuloy na ang programa," Angping said.

"I cannot leave until they find a replacement. I will stay here and wind up everything by July 1. Hopefully, I would not have to make any major decisions so as not to preempt the new chairman."
