MANILA - There will be no reshuffle among members of President Rodrigo Duterte's Cabinet, his spokesperson said Monday.

This, after Communication Secretary Martin Andanar earlier hinted at a “minor” Cabinet revamp, saying the change may be announced during the President’s State of the Nation Address. 

But Presidential Spokesperson Salvador Panelo said he has not heard from the President regarding the revamp.

"As far as I know, there’s none. Baka (maybe) in reference to new cabinet members kasi (because) he’s going to create 2 departments," he told ANC.

The President earlier said he would like separate departments for disaster resilience and Filipino migrant workers.
