President Duterte has named his former Cabinet secretary and campaign manager Leoncio Evasco Jr. as presidential adviser on streamlining of government processes

Presidential spokesman Harry Roque said Duterte signed Evasco’s appointment papers last Nov. 24, paving the way for the return of the President’s trusted adviser to the government after two years. The post was given the rank of secretary.

“PA (presidential adviser) Evasco is not new in the Duterte administration, having served as Cabinet secretary in the early years of the current administration. His familiarity with the present bureaucracy would contribute greatly in his new task of streamlining government processes in the executive. Welcome back, PA Evasco,” Roque said in a statement.

A former Bohol town mayor and rebel priest, Evasco served as Cabinet secretary of Duterte from 2016 to 2018.

He ran for governor of Bohol in 2019 but lost to Arthur Yap, an ally of Duterte and former president Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo.
