Palace tells PRC chief to shut up on nursing board fiasco

Palace tells PRC chief to shut up on nursing board fiasco

A SENIOR Palace official on Friday told the chair of the Professional Regulations Commission (PRC) to stop issuing statements that run counter to the administration’s position on the June 2006 nursing licensure examination scandal.

"I think the more prudent action is to really keep quiet and just wait for the decision (of the National Bureau of Investigation or NBI, and Department of Labor and Employment or DoLE)," Presidential Chief of Staff Michael Defensor said when asked what President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo intended to do about PRC chair Leonor Tripon-Rosero.

Defensor’s statement came just as the Court of Appeals ruled that more than 1,000 examinees should be given a retake of tests 3 and 5 of the nursing board.

Rosero has been adamant in her stand against a retake of the licensure exam, which was tainted by leaked questions to tests 3 and 5.

Most recently, she vowed to administer the oath to board passers once a temporary restraining order handed down by the appellate court lapses on October 18.

Arroyo had earlier ordered the DoLE to recommend a decision on whether or not a retake of the nursing board is needed.

Asked if Arroyo planned to suspend or gag Rosero, who is also her dentist, Defensor said, "You don't really need actions that can be more destructive to the administration,” although he added that any such decision “is the prerogative of the President.”

Nevertheless, he said :“As a member of Cabinet and (one) of those who witnessed the discussions that we…had, I feel chairman Rosero has been unfair.”

Asked if Rosero still enjoyed the President’s confidence, Defensor said Arroyo values “loyalty, effectiveness and efficiency” and that whatever her decision on the PRC head would be “nothing personal.”

Executive Secretary Eduardo Ermita earlier said that since Arroyo issued an executive order placing the PRC under the control and supervision of the DoLE, Rosero’s fate now lies with the department.

how dare mike defensor talk or say those things to rosero.....she should be honored for trying to cover up the leakage problem in the first place....
