President Rodrigo Duterte has appointed officers-in-charge for the Department of Information and Communications Technology and the Department of Health.

Presidential spokesperson Ernesto Abella on Thursday in a briefing announced the appointment of Undersecretary Eliseo Mijares Rio Jr. as DICT OIC and Undersecretary Herminigildo Valle as DOH OIC.

Mijares’ appointment came after former DICT Secretary Rodolfo Salalima resigned from his post in September.

Meanwhile, Valle was appointed as OIC of the DOH after former Health Secretary Ubial was rejected by the Commission on Appointments on Tuesday.

The appointment papers were signed by Executive Secretary Salvador Medialdea on October 10 by authority of the President. —KG, GMA News
