MANILA-- Former undersecretary Catalino Cuy was appointed as the new Department of Interior and Local Government officer-in-charge after Ismael Sueno was removed from the post last Tuesday.
Cuy assured in a statement Wednesday that he will not betray the public's trust.
He said he remained committed to overlook the day-to-day operations of the department and constituent agencies in the spirit of fairness, unity and dedication to public service.
The new secretary also pointed out he would pursue the President's campaign against illegal drugs, corruption, and criminality.
