Subic to get new administrator

SUBIC BAY FREEPORT-President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo is expected to appoint a new administrator of the Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority (SBMA) this week to replace Alfredo Antonio, who will get another government post, a top SBMA official said.

Jose Calimlim, SBMA senior deputy administrator for operations, declined to identify the new administrator and the reason for Antonio's replacement.

Calimlim, who is also president of the Subic Freeport Services Corp., told the Inquirer, "The President has already chosen someone to replace him [Antonio] and she is going to announce it either tomorrow [Friday] or the following days."

Antonio has yet to comment on leaving his SBMA jobs.

President Arroyo appointed Antonio, Calimlim and SBMA chairman Franciso Licuanan III in September. They assumed their posts in October.
