UN Ambassador Teddyboy Locsin Set to Replace Cayetano as Foreign Affairs Secretary


Philippine Permanent Representative to the United Nations (UN) Teodoro "Teddyboy" Locsin Jr. is set to replace former lawmaker and Foreign Affairs Secretary as the country's top diplomat. Teddyboy Locsin is also considered as one of the most vocal supporter of Mayor Duterte on social media during the election campaign period.



UN Ambassador Teddyboy Locsin confirmed his appointment as Secretary of the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) as he tweeted about the earlier news regarding his possible position in the Foreign Affairs Department.



Ambassador Locsin was quoted as saying "I was asked I said ye; but love UN, the many friends & intellectual companions I made. But I didn't say no when asked as I didn't when he told me I was UN ambassador," Locsin said.

According to Ambassador Locsin he can trust President Rody Duterte's decision since his uncle Chito Ayala also trusted him.

President Rody Duterte also confirmed and named former Foreign Affairs Secretary Cayetano's possible replacement upon Duterte's arrival in Davao from Southeast Asian leaders' gathering in Bali, Indonesia hours earlier.

Although the President did not named Cayetano's possible replacement because he claimed that the former DFA Secretary has yet to get his permission.



DFA Secretary Cayetano hinted earlier that he wanted to return to Congress as he stated "I thank the many members of the Senate and the House who as early as last night have welcomed my possible return to Congress and expressed their unconditional support," Cayetano said.

Teddyboy Locsin also noted during an interview with some media that he will be Secretary of Foreign Affairs which includes UN, and he will have a direct hand until the architecture of sovereign independence in all matters of state that his term started to erect is remitted.

Ambassador Locsin is a veteran lawyer, politician and former journalist who also served as Represenatative of the First District of Makati from 2001 to 2010.
