CAYETANO CONFIRMED AS FOREIGN AFFAIRS SECRETARY: Senator Alan Peter Cayetano gives his statement after he was confirmed by the Commission on Appointments as the new Secretary of the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) Wednesday, May 17, 2017. The approval of the CA panel came a week after Cayetano’s appointment was announced by President Rodrigo Duterte on May 10, 2017. “I am thankful and I am humbled. I will use this swift confirmation to remind me that I have to do my best as DFA Secretary,” Cayetano said. (PRIB Photo by Cesar Tomambo)
Tumagal lamang ng dalawang minuto ang naging pagsalang ng makapangyarihang Commission on Appointments (CA) kay Sen. Alan Peter Cayetano para sa confirmation process ng kaniyang DFA post.
Ayon kay Sen. Panfilo Lacson, wala namang kumuwestyon kay Cayetano, mula sa panig ng Senate at House contingent.
Paniwala ng ilan, ang pagiging dating miyembro ng CA ng incoming DFA secretary ang isa sa nagpadali ng proseso.
Ang kapalaran ng magiging bagong kalihim ay kabaliktaran ng sinapit ng kaniyang papalitan sa DFA na si dating Sec. Perfecto Yasay na na-reject ng makapangyarihang lupon.
Matatandaang si Cayetano ang nagsilbing ka-tandem ni Pangulong Rodrigo Duterte noong nakaraang halalan.
