MANILA, Philippines — President Rodrigo Dutere has named officers-in-charge of two departments, Information and Communications Technology, and Health, his spokesman Ernesto Abella said Thursday, October 12.

Undersecretary Herminigildo Valle was appointed OIC of the DOH following the recent rejection of Paulyn Ubial by the Commission on Appointments.

Undersecretary Eliseo Mijares Rio, on the other hand, will be in charge of the DICT, whose secretary, Rodolfo Salalima, resigned last month.
