Aquino confident with 4 bypassed Cabinet officials-A A +A
Sunday, December 22, 2013
PRESIDENT Benigno Aquino III will reappoint the four Cabinet officials who were again bypassed by the powerful Commission on Appointments (CA), a Palace official said Sunday.
In an interview over dzRB Radyo ng Bayan, Presidential Communications Operations Office Secretary Herminio Coloma Jr. said that Justice Secretary Leila de Lima, Environment Secretary Ramon Paje, Energy Secretary Carlos Jericho Petilla, and Social Welfare Secretary Corazon Soliman still enjoy the President's trust and confidence.
"Patuloy po ang paglilingkod nina Kalihim Leila de Lima, Ramon Paje, Carlos Jericho Petilla, at Corazon Soliman dahil buo naman po ang tiwala at kumpyansa ng Pangulo sa kanilang paglilingkod," he said.
The CA failed to confirm again the appointments of the four Cabinet officials before it went on a Christmas break. (SDR/Sunnex)
