MANILA, Philippines - Two new Cabinet members took their oath before President Benigno Aquino III on Friday.

In a ceremony in Malacañang, Aquino swore in Justice Secretary Benjamin Caguioa and Energy Secretary Zenaida Monsada, who will replace Cabinet members running for senator in the 2016 elections.

Aquino appointed Caguioa last week as ad interim justice secretary following the resignation of senatorial aspirant Leila de Lima.

Caguiao previously served as chief presidential legal counsel and was Aquino's college classmate at the Ateneo De Manila University.

Aquino named Monsada as ad interim energy secretary after senatorial aspirant Jericho Petilla quit the post.
