MANILA — President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. is considering several people to be the Department of Agriculture (DA) Secretary, Executive Secretary Bersamin said Wednesday.

Bersamin was asked whether he agree with requests for the President to name a permanent DA head in light of the rising cost of food and other essentials.

“Actually, the President is seriously considering several people to appoint on a permanent basis or regular basis to represent or minister the DA portfolio. But, he has not yet signified to us that he is ready to announce his decision,” he said.

According to Bersamin, Marcos and an accomplished Undersecretary manage the DA on a daily basis.

He claimed that the President is working with his Cabinet to solve the problem of rising costs, particularly those that are connected to food production and food security.
