MANILA, Philippines — The National Police Commission (Napolcom) has formally recommended Deputy Director General Jesus Verzosa to replace outgoing Philippine National Police (PNP) director general Avelino Razon Jr., an official said on Thursday.

Brian Yamsuan, assistant secretary for public affairs at the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG), told media that they have officially submitted the recommendation to President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo.

The recommendation was signed by Interior and Local Government Secretary Ronaldo Puno and other Napolcom commissioners, including Razon.

Razon is set to end his term as PNP chief on September 27 as he celebrates his 56th birthday on the same date.

Turnover ceremonies will be held on September 29 at the PNP Headquarters in Camp Crame, Quezon City.
