LIVE: Confirmation hearing of DOH Secretary Paulyn Ubial
MANILA, Philippines – Health Secretary Paulyn Ubial is set to face the Commission on Appointments (CA) on Tuesday, October 10.
The confirmation of Ubial's appointment as Department of Health (DOH) chief was deferred last May 17 and October 3, following 3 oppositions filed against her.
The CA previously rejected 4 Duterte Cabinet members – former foreign secretary Perfecto Yasay Jr, former environment secretary Gina Lopez, former social welfare secretary Judy Taguiwalo, and former agrarian reform secretary Rafael Mariano.
