A new administration started its six-year term in the Philippines. Last June 30, Pres. Bongbong Marcos officially assumed his post as the country’s Chief Executive during the oath-taking held at the Philippine National Museum.

The presidential inauguration of Marcos Jr. had his family, Cabinet members, important campaign personalities, and several distinguished guests including ex presidents of the Philippines gathered in one venue. He has appointed the secretaries of the different departments under the government prior to it.

Meanwhile, there are still vacant positions and there are also those departments and government agencies that just had the appointment of their secretaries or chairpersons like the Commission on Higher Education (CHED).
