MANILA, Philippines - President Benigno Aquino III has named Brigadier General Cesar Ronnie Ordoyo as the new chief of the Intelligence Service of the Armed Forces of the Philippines (ISAFP), military spokesman Miguel Jose Rodriguez, deputy chief of staff for Civilian Military Operations, said on Wednesday.

Ordoyo, a member of the Philippine Military Academy (PMA)'s "Mapitagan" Class of 1980, is the current commander of the Philippine Army's 301st Brigade based in Jamindan, Capiz.

Before he became brigade commander, Ordoyo was deputy commander of the Western Mindanao Command based in Zamboanga City.

During his junior years, Ordoyo served as head of the Defense Intelligence and Security Group when Orly Mercado was still the head of the Department of National Defense under the Estrada administration.

Ordoyo will replace Major General Romeo Bambao of PMA Class ’79 who was earlier appointed commander of the Army’s 2nd Infantry Division based in Camp Capinpin, Tanay, Rizal. Bambao replaced Lt. Gen. Jessie Dellosa who was promoted commander of the Northern Luzon Command based in Camp Aquino, Tarlac.

Ordoyo will officially assume his new position in a turnover ceremony on Friday at the ISAFP compound in Camp Aguinaldo.
