PRESIDENT Rodrigo Duterte has appointed former president Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo as Presidential Adviser on Clark Flagship Programs and Projects.
Presidential Spokesman Harry Roque confirmed this on Thursday.
“We confirm that President Rodrigo Roa Duterte has signed the appointment of former President and former Speaker Gloria Macapagal Arroyo as Presidential Adviser on Clark Flagship Programs and Projects, with compensation rate of One Peso (P1.00) per annum, on Nov. 24, 2020.”
Roque said Arroyo’s wisdom and her experience as former president “coupled with her great concern” for Pampanga would be valuable as she would assist the Duterte administration in the planning and execution of projects to turn Clark as the “next premier metropolis of Asia.”
Roque also confirmed that President Duterte signed on November 24 the nomination of Aimee Ferolino-Ampoloquio as Commission on Elections Commissioner and the appointment of Gilbert Cruz as permanent member of the Dangerous Drugs Board.
