CA panel suspends deliberations on Lotilla’s appointment as DOE chief anew

For the second time, the Commission on Appointments Committee on Energy has suspended the deliberations on the  ad interim appointment of Energy Secretary Raphael Lotilla.

It was SAGIP Rep. Rodante Marcoleta who suggested to the CA panel to continue the deliberations on Lotilla's appointment on Wednesday as he would still raise more policy questions with the Energy chief.

"There's still a length of policy questions that's why I am conferring with the chairman kung puwedeng bumalik na lang si Secretary bukas kung puwede siyang ma-accommodate [if the Secretary can return tomorrow if he can be accommodated]," Marcoleta said.

CA Majority Leader Luis Raymund Villafuerte made the official motion to suspend the hearing which was approved by the CA panel.

Last week, the CA Committee on Energy suspended the hearing on Lotilla's appointment due to lack of material time— RSJ, GMA Integrated News
