Meanwhile, the tenure for Firme will end on July 9, 2026.

The nominations of the officials had already been debated in the CA’s committees on foreign affairs, justice and judiciary and bar council, and finance and management. The appointments of Manalo, Pangandaman, and Firme were then transmitted to the plenary for final approval.

The panels on public works and highways; and labor, employment, social welfare, and migrant workers were supposed to likewise deliberate on the ad-interim appointments of Social Welfare Secretary Erwin Tulfo and Public Works Secretary Manuel Bonoan, respectively.

Unfortunately, time constraints meant that the debates could not be held.
