Senator Panfilo Lacson believes that newly appointed Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) Sec. Alan Cayetano will not have the same fate with other rejected appointees.

Though Cayetano is a big loss to the Senate, Lacson said the Commission on Appointments (CA) will not make the hearing confirmation that hard for him.

It can be recalled that since Pres. Rodrigo Duterte seated, he was vocal on appointing Cayetano as DFA Secretary.

According to Lacson the CA might do a ‘confirmation by acclamation’ to Cayetano as recognition to a former Senate member.

In fact, earlier today, the CA already confirmed Cayetano’s appointment. The confirmation hearing went smoothly.
