The Commission on Appointments (CA) defied popular clamor for Gina Lopez to be DENR Secretary. They failed to do the right thing. Many of them have vested interests with mining companies.

Can the people of the Philippines also defy them? Yes, they can. But only if they spoke loud enough and in numbers large enough to be heard. In this era of the social media this is possible.

One workaround offered is for the President to take over the office of DENR Secretary, and for Gina to act as Undersecretary. This arrangement will be outside CA whims, extraordinary measure for extraordinary times.

THEREFORE, we propose for the President of the Philippines to concurrently hold the position of DENR Secretary, with Gina Lopez holding the post of Undersecretary, until a way can be found for the CA to confirm Gina's appointment as Secretary.

We urge you to sign this petition if you're serious about real change. It is only with Gina Lopez that we have a guardian for our natural resources. Previous DENR secretaries have treated the Department as cash cows for their own or for their political parties. The people's clamor should convince President Duterte if he himself is true to his promise of real change. SIGN THIS PETITION!
