Trillanes welcomes AAo appointment as DILG chief

MANILA-- Sen. Antonio Trillanes IV on Wednesday welcomed the appointment of Armed Forces Chief General Eduardo AAo as the new Secretary of the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG).

Gen. AAo's appointment as DILG (secretary) is a welcome development. His numerous accomplishments as a military officer are true measures of his leadership, character and competence which are much needed for his new assignment, Trillanes, former Navy officer, said in a statement.

AAo will be taking over DILG officer-in-charge Catalino Cuy, who assumed the post after Ismael SueAo who was removed from his post.

He must finish his term in the Armed Forces on October 26 before assuming his cabinet position
