President Ferdinand Marcos Jr. has designated a member of the Supreme Court to serve as a commissioner in the Governance Commission for Government-Owned or Controlled Corporations (GOCCs), also known as GCG.

Brian Keith Hosaka, who holds the position of assistant court administrator and Chief of the Public Information Office, is set to take on the role of commissioner, as stated in a release on the High Court’s official website on Friday.

Hosaka has notably fulfilled the role of spokesperson for the High Court during the tenures of three chief justices: the now-retired Chief Justice and current Executive Secretary Lucas Bersamin, retired Chief Justice Diosdado Peralta, and the present Chief Justice Alexander Gesmundo.

The High Court remarked, “[Hosaka] played a crucial role in introducing numerous initiatives that have further improved the dissemination of information about the Court and its endeavors, thus bridging the gap between the Courts and the public.”

The GCG is committed to “ensuring a transparent and responsive government-owned and -controlled sector for the Filipino populace,” according to the agency’s official website. (AI/MNM)
