Foreign Affairs Secretary Alan Peter Cayetano on Wednesday thanked his colleagues at the Senate and apologized to some on his last day as a senator.
In a speech at the Senate on Wednesday, Cayetano thanked his colleagues for making him a better person, debater, legislator and policy maker and, he said he hoped, a better diplomat, by “working together, working against each other, working for each other and everything that is in between all of that.”
“I don’t know the right words, but this isn’t goodbye, maybe farewell in the meantime,” Cayetano said.
“Kung meron man akong nasaktan o napersonal sa mga debate, please accept my apologies, I don’t promise not to do it again, but this time around I’ll do it as a diplomat so I’ll do it much kinder,” he added.
President Rodrigo Duterte last week announced the appointment of his former running mate as soon as the one-year ban on the appointment of losing candidates in the May 9, 2016 elections was lifted.
Cayetano replaces acting Secretary Enrique Manalo who, in turn, replaced Perfecto Yasay, whose appointment was rejected by the commission.
