ABS-CBN’s Gina Lopez accepts DENR post — report
A day after President-elect Rodrigo Duterte made the offer, ABS-CBN Foundation executive and anti-mining advocate Gina Lopez on Tuesday (June 21) accepted the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) post.
A Philippine Daily Inquirer report confirmed Lopez accepting President-elect Duterte’s offer for her to be part of the Cabinet.
“After much introspection, I decided to accept it (DENR post). Let’s see what happens,” she was quoted as saying.
Lopez, a vocal supporter of Duterte, met with incoming president yesterday (June 20) at the Presidential Guest House, Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) Panacan Depot in Davao City.
Honored by the invitation, Lopez earlier said she would seriously consider the offer. “I am honored with the trust given. I will seriously, seriously consider it,” she said.
Lopez is the chairperson of ABS-CBN Lingkod Kapamilya Foundation. She is also the chair of the Pasig River Rehabilitation Commission (PRRC).
