”3. In cases where the head of agency or office has resigned and whose resignation has been accepted or is deemed separated on June 30, 2010, and no replacement has been appointed or designated, the next-in-rank and most senior official of the agency or a senior official of the Department to which said agency is attached, shall be designated by the Department Secretary concerned as officer-in-charge, to perform the duties and discharge the responsibilities of the position until October 31, 2010 or until a replacement has been appointed or designated, whichever comes first, unless his designation is extended in the meantime."

MC No. 2 also states that any official whose service has been terminated or whose resignation has been accepted on/or before July 31, 2010, but whose replacement has not yet been appointed or designated shall be deemed separated from the service as of the date of termination or acceptance of resignation.
