DAVAO CITY – Bayan Muna Rep. Carlos Isagani Zarate expressed “grave disappointment” over the Commission on Appointments’ rejection of Environment Secretary Gina Lopez’s appointment.
“This is certainly a blow in the fight against the plunder of our natural resources and protection of our environment,” Zarate said in a statement.
“We hope that the Palace will appoint a successor that will also approximate if not exceed Secretary Gina’s ardent advocacy for the environment and no-nonsense fight against destructive mining and corporate greed,” he added. SFM
