MANILA, Philippines – Energy Secretary Secretary Angelo Reyes formally resigned his post on Friday to pursue a career as a lawmaker.
The former chief of staff of the Armed Forces of the Philippines said he has accepted the invitation of 1-United Transport Koalisyon (1-UTAK), a partylist group, to represent the transport sector in the Lower House.
Filling in Reyes’ vacated post at the Energy Department as officer-in-charge is Jose Ibazeta, the current president of the Power Sector Assets and Liabilities Management Corporation (PSALM), which oversees the sale of the state’s energy assets.
