However, Section 325(f) of the same law provides a limitation for the exercise of such authority by the SP, to wit: “(f) No changes in designation or nomenclature of positions resulting in a promotion or demotion in rank or increase or decrease In compensation shall be allowed except when the position is actually vacant, and the filling of such positions shall be strictly made In accordance with civil arrive law, rules and regulations. The subject Request of the Honorable Governor complies with the Limitation abovementioned.
