From the Presidential Spokesperson – On PRRD’s recent remarks on women

We reiterate that the President’s recent remarks on women are a mere play of words.

PRRD’s statement reflects his growing frustration over the continuous and non-stop tirades against his Administration by the ousted Chief Justice and the Ombudsman.

The appointments of Secretary Bernadette Romulo-Puyat to the Department of Tourism, Acting Secretary Virginia Orogo to the Department of Social Welfare and Development and Commissioner Socorro Inting to the Commission on Elections not only demonstrate but a proof that women can occupy leadership roles in his government.
