President Rodrigo Duterte has named Senator Alan Peter Cayetano the new Secretary of the Department of Foreign Affairs.

The President has signed Cayetano's appointment paper.

Duterte made the announcement this afternoon during his departure speech at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport.

He is off to Cambodia to attend the World Economic Forum tomorrow.

Duterte has repeatedly said he would appoint Cayetano to the DFA post after the one-year election ban for defeated candidates in the 2016 elections lapses.

Margaux "Mocha" Justiniano Uson has also been appointed Assistant Secretary at the Presidential Communications Operations Office.
