MANILA MalacaAang has released the appointment papers of new government officials, among them newly sworn-in Department of Tourism (DOT) Secretary Bernadette Romulo-Puyat.
President Rodrigo R. Duterte signed Romulo-Puyat's paper on May 11 but it was released to the media on Wednesday (May 16).
Romulo-Puyat replaced Wanda Tulfo-Teo, who tendered her resignation after the Commission on Audit questioned the PHP60-million payment by the DOT for ad placements on a television show hosted by her brothers Ben and Erwin Tulfo on state-run TV network PTV 4.
Prior to her appointment, Romulo-Puyat was an undersecretary at the Department of Agriculture.
MalacaAang also released the appointment paper of Special Envoy of the President to the State of Kuwait Abdullah D. Mama-o.
Duterte signed Mama-o's appointment paper on May 9 but it was released to the media also on Wednesday.
