National Food Authority Administrator Judy Carol Dansal was appointed by President Rodrigo Duterte as an NFA council member, replacing Jason Aquino.
Documents released by the Palace revealed on Monday that Dansal, who was the deputy administrator of the agency, will serve the unexpired term of Aquino.

“You are hereby appointed Member, NFA Council, NFA, to serve the unexpired term of office that began on 01 July, 2018 and will end on 30 June 2019, vice Jason Laureano Y. Aquino,” her appointment paper read.
Dansal, along with former NFA chief Angelito Banayo and four others, was earlier charged with graft cases in 2014 before the Office of the Ombudsman over a rice smuggling case.
