Malacañang wished former president Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo well in her new post as Presidential Adviser on Clark Programs and Projects.
Her appointment was confirmed by Executive Secretary Salvador Medialdea Thursday.
In a statement, Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque said Arroyo, who served as a consultant of the Pampanga provincial government following her retirement from politics in 2019, is to be given a compensation of “one peso (P1.00) per annum.”
PA Arroyo’s wisdom and her vast experience as a former head of state and head of government, coupled with her great concern in her native Pampanga, would be valuable as she would assist the Administration in the planning and execution of programs and projects to turn Clark as the next premier metropolis of Asia,” according to Roque.
“All the best to PA Arroyo in this new undertaking,” he also said.
