President Rodrigo Duterte has reappointed lawyer John Castriciones as acting Agrarian Reform secretary.

Duterte issued the ad interim appointment on March 22, a day after the Commission on Appointments (CA) deferred action on Castriciones' appointment.

The document, however, was only released to the media Wednesday.

Castriciones was first appointed to the Department of Agrarian Reform in December following the CA's rejection of Duterte’s first appointee to the post, activist Rafael Mariano, last September. - with a report from Dexter Ganibe, ABS-CBN News
