MANILA, Philippines — Cabinet officials continue to enjoy the trust and confidence of President Rodrigo Duterte, Malacañang said Thursday days after Communications Secretary Martin Andanar said that “minor changes” in the Cabinet lineup may happen soon.

Presidential Spokesperson Salvador Panelo said Duterte is “satisfied” with the performance of his Cabinet officials.

“Oh, haven’t you heard him praised and commended members of [the] Cabinet heading line departments, hindi ba? That means he is satisfied, he commended them publicly,” Panelo said in a Palace briefing.

Andanar earlier said “there could be minor changes in the Cabinet in the next few weeks as the President mentioned during the last Cabinet meeting.”
