No midnight appointments in DFA – Del Rosario

Jose Katigbak - The Philippine Star

WASHINGTON – Foreign Affairs Secretary Albert del Rosario declared on Tuesday that there would be no political appointments at the foreign office in the waning days of the Aquino administration.

He said when he took office in 2011 he advocated “a policy that we should appoint as few political appointees as possible and I have been faithful to that.”

Certainly there will be no “midnight appointments” of political appointees from now to elections in May, he said at a news conference.

Del Rosario was himself a political appointee of former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo and served as ambassador to the United States from 2001 to 2006.
