MANILA, Philippines – The  Commission on Appointments’  Committee on National Defense swiftly approved on Wednesday the nomination of the newly-appointed commanding general of the Philippine Air Force  (PAF), Lieutenant General Allen Paredes.

Paredes was appointed last January.


No question was asked when the PAF chief faced the committee.

“Mr.  Chairman I’m tempted to ask questions pero medyo classified…”  Senator  Panfilo Lacson   said.


Since no committee member questioned the nominee,  the panel proceeded with the approval of  Paredes’ nomination for plenary consideration.

Aside from the PAF chief, the panel also recommended for confirmation the ad interim appointments and nominations of four other senior officers of the  Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP), Brigadier Generals  John Oberio and Ramon  Guiang,  Major General  Eric Vinoya and Commodore  Carlo Sabarre.

The confirmation of the five military officials has yet to be approved at the CA plenary.
