Dureza is new press secretary; Esperon assumes Dureza’s post


MANILA — Malacañang announced Sunday the appointments of presidential adviser on the peace process Jesus Dureza and former Armed Forces chief of staff Hermogenes Esperon Jr. as press secretary and peace adviser, respectively.

Dureza and Esperon, who just retired on May 12, will assume their new posts on June 16.

Dureza will replace Press Secretary Ignacio Bunye who was appointed earlier to the Monetary Board while Esperon will assume the post Dureza is vacating.

Bunye will continue to act as presidential spokesman and concurrent political adviser until July 3. It is still uncertain if President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo will name a separate spokesman and political adviser.

Bunye said Dureza, a lawyer and former congressman of Davao, would still wind down his current work before assuming his new post.(SunStar)
