“Its his Prerogative” Malacañang spokesman said in a statement after Presumptive President Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte offered the four departments to the members of the Communist Party of the Philippines on Monday.
“Every president exercises the prerogative to appoint Cabinet members who are deemed capable and trustworthy,” Communications Secretary Herminio Coloma Jr. said.
“While reviewing such appointments, Congress may engage stakeholders in dialogues that would surface concerns of objections such as those that have been aired in regard to the incoming president’s plan to appoint nominees from the Communist Party of the Philippines,” he added.
“Let this process unfold and bring about results that will truly serve the national interests”.
