DUTERTE TRANSITION TEAM
Six close allies of President-elect Rodrigo Duterte have been designated to iron out the transition of power from the Aquino administration.
Peter Lavina, spokesman of Duterte, bared the composition of the “Duterte Transition Committee” via a Facebook post following the massive victory of the Davao City Mayor in the presidential polls.
“It’s now out. The members of the Duterte Transition Committee are Campaign Manager Leoncio Jun Evasco; Assistant Campaign Manager and Executive Assistant Christopher Bong Go; Carlos G. Dominguez, former cabinet member and Head of our Campaign Finance Committee; lawyers Salvador Medialdea and Loreto Ata, personal layers of the presumptive president, and yours truly at your service,” Lavina wrote.
Lavina said they also plan to hold daily press conferences “to continue serving the various media and help us disseminate news and information about presumptive President Rody Duterte.”
A media center has been established at the Duterte national campaign headquarters for regular briefings at 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. everyday.
