President Rodrigo Duterte continues to trust Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) Secretary Gina Lopez.
The president has re-appointed Lopez as secretary of DENR after the Commission on Appointment (CA) bypassed her confirmation.
Pres. Duterte said, he admires Lopez for being strict and not corrupt, aside from her advocacy for the environment and they are both against corruption.
Speculations spread that Lopez’ days at the DENR are numbered after her name was excluded in the list of cabinet members to be re-appointed.
