Army chief Rolly Bautista is the next secretary of the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD).

President Rodrigo Duterte made this announcement before the Philippine Military Academy Alumni Association, Inc. in Malacañang Thursday night.

“Announce ko naman, the next DSWD secretary… Gen. Del Rosario, si Ed. Ah, si, si Rolly pala, Rolly Bautista,” Duterte said.

“Si ano pala ang inutusan ko para sa Mechanized Division. That’s the first, I was talking to Rolly, si Ed del Rosario to help the Mechanized Brigade. Sorry secretary,” he added.

Last September 16, Duterte offered Bautista to head the National Food Authority after Jason Aquino asked to be releved from his post.
