On Sept. 28, the Commission on Appointments (CA) bypassed the ad interim appointments of 12 Cabinet secretaries because of lack of time.

Uy and Trixie Cruz-Angeles of the Office of the Press Secretary (OPS) were not in the roster of reappointed Cabinet secretaries which was released by the OPS. Cruz-Angeles has resigned from her post, citing health reasons.
