Armed Forces of the Philippines vice chief-of-staff Lt. Gen. Glorioso Miranda was named acting military chief after the retirement of Gen. Hernando Iriberri Friday.
Miranda is a member of the Philippine Military Academy Class of 1983. He is a classmate or “mistah” of Iriberri. The latter stepped down after reaching the mandatory retirement age of 56.
However, due to the election ban, there will be no immediate replacement for Iriberri, hence Miranda’s acting AFP chief designation.
Miranda assumed the post of AFP vice chief-of-staff last month. Prior to this appointment, Miranda was the head of the Tarlac City-based Northern Luzon Command.
He also commanded the Nueva Ecija-based 7th Infantry Division and General Headquarters and Headquarters Service Command at Camp Aguinaldo, Quezon City.
