A New Cabinet Revamp by Pres. GMA

President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo already confirmed the Cabinet revamp. It was reported that the revamp would take place this week or next week.

The following are the possible new appointees for the cabinet positions:

Defense Secretary Gilbert Teodoro - Department of Justice
DILG Sec. Ronaldo Puno - Executive Secretary
Executive Sec. Ermita - Ambassador to Washington

Payback Time for defeated Team Unity Candidates:
Michael Defensor - Press Secretary
Former Sen. Tessie Aquino Oreta - DEpt of Education
Former Sen. Vicente Sotto - Political Adviser
Former Sen. Ralph Recto - Finance Secretary\

Presidential Anti Smuggling Group Chief Antonio Villar - Customs Commisioner
Gariel Claudio - PCSO Chairman

What would be the implication of this revamp? Since the prohibition in the constitution of appointing defeated candidates would already expire, the President can now appoint these defeated candidates in Malacanang.

She would again build a new team. A new group of think tank. Is this a preparation for her extension of office come May 2010? Filipinos should think again and observe.
