THE Commission on Appointments (CA) gave its nod to the appointments of 28 foreign service officers and the promotion of 196 senior officers of the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) on the last day of its session Wednesday.
However, the CA bypassed the appointment of Nieves Osorio as commissioner of the Civil Service Commission (CSC).
Osorio’s term, which is up to 2020, may be cut short if she will not be reappointed by incoming President Rodrigo Duterte.
Senate President Franklin Drilon said it was Sen. Alan Peter Cayetano who wanted to defer Osorio’s confirmation.
Cayetano moved to adjourn the session citing lack of quorum even before the commission tackled Osorio’s appointment.
Aquino appointed Osorio to the CSC on March 2013 for a seven-year term.
