President Rodrigo Duterte has appointed his fraternity brother at the San Beda University-based Lex Talionis Fraternitas as commissioner of the Commission on Elections (Comelec).
Special Assistant to the President Christopher “Bong” Go confirmed that Duterte has named Justice Undersecretary Antonio Kho Jr. to the post vacated by then commissioner and now Comelec Chair Sheriff Abas.
Kho will serve until 2022.
Duterte appointed Abas as Comelec head after former chairperson Andres Bautista resigned amid allegations of ill-gotten wealth. /kga
