SINGAPORE — President Aquino said he will offer Heidi Mendoza the post of commissioner of the Commission on Audit (COA).

Aquino said the next COA chair should be a lawyer as mandated by law.

Aquino has not yet talked to Mendoza to formally offer the job.
 
“Pag balik nya, palagay ko, as a minimum, she will be a COA Commissioner. If she becomes a commissioner, then the COA chair has to be a lawyer as mandated by law,” Aquino told reporters.

Mendoza, a former state auditor, has testified in Congress regarding corruption in the military.

She recently expressed interest in returning to the COA.
