Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) Secretary Rafael Mariano is facing the Commission on Appointments for the third time on Wednesday.

Today is CA members' turn to ask Mariano questions.

Yesterday, the panel heard 9 out of 10 oppositors to the nomination of Mariano to the DAR post.

The oppositors included peasant leaders from Hacienda Luisita.

They accused Mariano of lack of objectivity when he allegedly sided with Ambala, a farmers' group in Tarlac City.
