Changes to the Office of the Presidential Spokesperson will be introduced, according to Secretary Salvador Panelo.

Panelo, also chief legal counsel, is the new spokesperson of President Rodrigo Duterte.

“I might introduce some changes. Like for instance, I feel like before I make a news briefing, I want to talk to heads of the departments and offices, sensitive ones, so that I will know exactly what they want to share to the public any concern or issue that is vital,” he said during a press briefing on Friday.

The abogado, however, said that no major restructuring in his office will be made.

“I think I will maintain the same team. I don’t know yet the set up. I told the team to give me a summary of who are the members of the team, what are they doing, what is the protocol during the briefing,” he further said.
