Manila, Philippines – President-elect Noy Noy Aquino is set to name the members of his Cabinet today. One of the members include Cesar Purisima as finance secretary.
The announcement of the Cabinet members is part of the preparation for Aquino’s inauguration tomorrow as the country’s 15th president.
Outgoing Finance Secretary Margarito Teves said he met yesterday with Purisima for a briefing on the condition of the economy. However, Purisima came as a member of the transition team and not as the next finance chief. Some sources however, have confirmed that Purisima has accepted the finance portfolio.
