Sponsorship Speech for DFA Sec. Alan Peter Cayetano, before the Commission of Appointments

Mr. Chairman, this morning, this Representation, being the Chairman of your Committee on Foreign Affairs, presided over probably the shortest public hearing to recommend to this honorable commission to give its consent to the nomination of Senator Alan Peter S. Cayetano as the Secretary of Department of Foreign Affairs.

In the spirit of consistency, I will now deliver the shortest sponsorship speech.

I so move, Mr. Chairman.
