No reshuffling in Duterte’s cabinet

President Rodrigo Duterte is not implementing any reshuffle in the composition of his cabinet at this time.

The Palace says, the Chief Executive is satisfied with the performances of department heads.

Only Senator Alan Peter Cayetano will be added to the cabinet.

He will assume the post of Foreign Affairs Secretary once the one-year ban for government positions for all persons who ran in the 2016 election is over.

Duterte said he only requested Foreign Affairs Secretary Perfecto Yasay to hold the position until Cayetano becomes available.

Yasay intends to return to the United States where he has a teaching profession.
