President Benigno Aquino 3rd has appointed Alfonso Tan as the new head of the Land Transportation Office (LTO).
Tan will replaced former LTO chief Virginia Torres who opted for early retirement in October after a video of her playing casino went viral.
He was named officer-in-charge of LTO on November 1 when the retirement of Torres took effect.
Tan, a lawyer, joined LTO in September 2011. He was appointed executive director of the agency by then Transportation Secretary Manuel Roxas 2nd.
