President Rodrigo Roa Duterte on Thursday, May 18, led the oath of office of former Senator Alan Peter Schramm Cayetano as the new Foreign Affairs Secretary.
The oath-taking was held at the Presidential Guesthouse in Panacan, Davao City.
Secretary Cayetano’s appointment was confirmed by the Commission on Appointments on Wednesday, May 17.
He succeeded Enrique Manalo, who was appointed officer in charge of the department.
This was after the appointment of his predecessor, Perfecto Yasay, was rejected by the CA after it ruled he had lied about his citizenship.
