President Noynoy Aquino‘s list of cabinet members has been disclosed to the public thru a press conference. Some of the cabinet member were close ties with the Aquino family and some of them are serving in the government for many years now. These appointed people will share the 6 year term with P-Noy and hopefully they will share a common goal in that span of time.
The appointed Executive Secretary or sometimes called as “The Little President” is Atty. Paquito Ochoa. Being in that high position in the cabinet, he has the power to sign important papers because he also represents the Philippine President himself.
President Noynoy Aquino List of Cabinet Members:
Alberto Romulo – DFA
Cesar Purisima – Dept of Finance
Rogelio Singson – DPWH
Jose Rene Almendras – DOE
Dr. Mario Montejo – DOST

However, the position for DILG is vacant at the moment and P-noy himself will take the responsibility of handling the DILG department until there’s someone who gets appointed.
What do you think of the list of Cabinet members? For me, I can say that it’s a good list and hopefully they will do their very best together to help our country out of poverty.
