CA rejects Ubial as DOH secretary
"We are deeply grateful for Secretary Ubial's service to the Health Department and for epitomizing the President's compassion through her "All for Health, towards Health for All" Philippine Health Agenda", Abella added.
"We have a rule that if we reach 13, (whether to) reject or confirm, we stop the counting", Honasan said in a chance interview after the appointments body's vote.
Rappler says 150 employees of the Philippine Health Insurance Corporation signed a manifesto opposing Ubial's appointment.
Ubial did not attend the plenary session where her rejection was announced by Sen.
Senator Gregorio Honasan II (second from left), chair of the Commission on Appointments (CA) Committee on Health, fields questions to Health Secretary Paulyn Jean Ubial during the CA hearing on Ubial's ad-interim appointment Tuesday, October 10, 2017.
"We wish Secretary Ubial well in all her future endeavors", Abella said.
Ubial was bypassed late previous year after Roque raised concerns over her qualifications for the post.
Aside from Ubial, other cabinet secretaries who were rejected by the CA include former Environment Secretary Gina Lopez, Agrarian Reform Secretary Rafael Mariano, Social Welfare Secretary Judy Taguiwalo, and Foreign Affairs Secretary Perfecto Yasay Jr.
Rep. Henry Roque called on Duterte to appoint a doctor with "proven managerial skills".
"The success of universal health care and all other health reforms of the administration lies in the hands of the next DoH secretary".
