CSC Chairman Duque gets nod of CA

Manila (3 February) -- Former Secretary of Health, Francisco Duque III, is now the new Civil Service Commission chairman.

This, after it took only five minutes for newly appointed Civil Service Commission chair to get the nod of the bicameral Commission on Appointments in the morning of February 3.

In giving their nod, the members of the Commission noted that Chairman Duque has performed excellently as Health secretary.

"It is heartwarming to note that he has been appointed to a very sensitive position and considering his track record, we are assured that civil service will be in the correct hands," Representative Eduardo Zialcita said.

The issue of his not being a lawyer was not raised during the hearing, contrary to what happened when the nomination of former CSC Chairman Ricardo Saludo was discussed last year.

CSC Chairman Duque thanked the appointment committee on constitutional commissions and offices headed by Representative Rodolfo Plaza.

"I would like to express my most profound gratitude and appreciation for your motion to submit for plenary my nomination. It will be a source of inspiration," Duque said, vowing to initiate "meaningful reforms," at the commission.

Chairman Duque will be presented to the plenary later in the day for confirmation of his nomination. (PIA 8) [top]
