GMA replacing officials en masse

Posted by akosistella on March 26, 2010

MANILA, Philippines – After getting the green light from the Supreme Court (SC) to appoint the next chief justice, President Arroyo has apparently gone on an appointing spree, naming an ambassador, several officials of government agencies, and replacing the entire boards of two cultural institutions with barely three months left in her term and despite the constitutional ban on midnight appointments.

In what some quarters are calling a pre-election “massacre,” the entire boards as well as the heads of the National Museum and the National Historical Institute (NHI), both agencies under the Office of the President, were changed, with most of them not even knowing they had been replaced.

The President also appointed business tycoon Alfonso Yuchengco, 86, as ambassador to Germany, with current Ambassador Delia Domingo-Albert learning about it only when she went to Malacañang last Friday to receive an award from a women’s business group.
