Kailangang muling magpa-appoint ng 12 gabinete kay Pangulong Ferdinand Marcos Jr. matapos na ma-byspass sila sa Commission on Appointments, ayon kay Senate President Juan Miguel Zubiri.
Sa listahang inilabas ni Zubiri, kabilang sa mga na-bypass sina Press Secretary Trixie Cruz-Angeles, Energy Secretary Raphael Perpetuo Lotilla, Finance Secretary Benjamin Diokno, Human Settlements and Urban Development Secretary Jose Rizalino Acuzar, Information and Communications Technology Secretary Ivan John Enrile Uy, at Migrant Workers Secretary Maria Susana Ople.
Kasama rin sina Public Works and Highways Secretary Manuel Bonoan, Science and Technology Secretary Renato Solidum Jr., Social Welfare and Development Secretary Erwin Tulfo, Trade Secretary Alfredo Pascual, Transportation Secretary Jaime Bautista, Socioeconomic Planning Secretary ic and Development Authority Secretary Arsenio Balisacan.
Samantala, hindi rin nakumpirma si Commission on Audit (COA) Chairman Jose Calida gayundin ang nominasyon ng appointment ni Nelson Java Celis bilang commissioner ng Commission on Elections (Comelec).
“All the Secretaries, not just Sec. Tulfo and Sec. Bonoan who have not been confirmed, will have to seek a reappointment by the President as they would all be considered bypassed,” sabi ni Zubiri sa kanyang mensahe sa mga reporter. (Dindo Matining)
