MANILA, Philippines — Deputy Speaker Amelita Villarosa has been named acting chairwoman of the ruling Lakas-Kabalikat ng Malayang Pilipino-Christian Muslim Democrats (Lakas-KAMPI-CMD) after the party’s standard-bearer Gilbert Teodoro quit his post on Tuesday.

In an interview with Ces Drilon on ANC’s Rundown, Prospero Pichay, Lakas-KAMPI-CMD vice-president for membership and recruitment, said Villarosa was selected during a meeting on Wednesday presided by President Arroyo, the party’s chair emeritus.

Pichay also said that Francis Xavier Manglapus was named party president replacing Sarangani Gov. Rene Miguel Dominguez, who tendered his resignation on Wednesday.
