After presiding over what may very well be the shortest confirmation listening to within the Commission on Appointments, Sen. Panfilo Lacson delivered Wednesday a equally brief sponsorship speech for the confirmation of Sen. Alan Cayetano as Foreign Affairs Secretary.
Lacson delivered the speech as chairman of the CA’s overseas affairs committee, which tackled the nomination of Cayetano earlier within the day.
“In the spirit of consistency, I will now deliver the shortest sponsorship speech. Thus, Mr. Chairman, distinguished colleagues, it is my distinct honor and privilege to move that the Commission give its consent to the nomination of Senator Alan Peter Cayetano as Secretary of Department of Foreign Affairs,” he stated.
Cayetano breezed by way of the CA confirmation listening to in a matter of minutes earlier Wednesday.
