Honasan Appointed as DICT Secretary

Longtime senator Gregorio “Gringo” Honasan II was appointed to the post of Information and Communications Technology Secretary this week, with President Duterte formally signing the papers last November 19.


Honasan will be replacing Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) from acting secretary Eliseo Rio Jr, who held the post for 6 months.


Honasan will be overseeing the process of setting up the third major telco player in the country, as well as responding to complaints raised by several groups that the selection process had favored the Mislatel group.
