Department of Environment and Natural Resources Secretary (DENR) Gina Lopez is facing the Commission on Appointments (CA) in the Senate on Wednesday morning.

This is the first time she is facing the panel as she seeks the lawmakers' confirmation of her appointment.

“I am confident that we can get the country out of poverty,” Lopez told the commission.

She also stressed social justice as the important consideration in her goals.

She proceeded to give lawmakers an audio-visual presentation on DENR's ecological projects.

Meanwhile, the CA plans to resolve in an executive session the case of Department of Foreign Affairs Secretary (DFA) Perfecto Yasay.

Yasay’s confirmation has been marred by questions on his citizenship.

Senator Panfilo Lacson says, the ruling of the CA on Yasay will be announced in the plenary session on Wednesday afternoon.
