MANILA — The Commission on Appointments (CA) has confirmed the ad interim appointment of Manuel Bonoan as secretary of the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH).

Before this, there was a deliberation in the CA committee on public works and highways and later his confirmation was recommended to the plenary.

Since there was no objection, Bonoan’s CA appointment was immediately confirmed.

During the committee hearing, Senator Imee Marcos asked about the P32 million received by Bonoan between June 30, 2021 and June 30, 2022 based on what was stated in his statement of assets, liabilities, and net worth.

Bonoan replied that it was part of the retirement pay he received from San Miguel Corporation.

“I believe these receivables, if I have to look into the details of it, are, actually some of them, are part of the retirement pay that I receive from my private practice in San Miguel Corporation. Mostly, I think came from there,” Bonoan said.

“I could imagine that there have been some also that came from the other business that we have been into,” he added.
