Who rejected Judy? JV Ejercito suspects Zamora and his self-interest

The country lost a chance to have Judy Taguiwalo in the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) after some lawmakers let their selfish interest prevail over her competence and integrity, according to Senator JV Ejercito.

Ejercito, saddened by the Commission on Appointments (CA) rejection of Taguiwalo’s appointment, suspected San Juan Rep. Ronaldo Zamora as among the politikos who blocked the appointment of the Cabinet official.

“Just like Gina Lopez, we lost the opportunity to have another good, principled woman at the helm of the DSWD with Sec. Judy Taguiwalo,” Ejercito tweeted.

“While Ronny Zamora is at head of the house contingent of the Commission on Appointments, business and self interest will always prevail,” he said.

He said Taguiwalo has opposed patronage politics to dominate DSWD programs, including the conditional cash transfer program, during her stint. “Zamora & some pulitikos use them for political purposes,” he said.
