Three is a crowd? Duterte appoints Martin Diño as SBMA chief

Sep 30, 2016 @ 17:33

Martin Diño, the former Volunteers Against Crime and Corruption chair and initial PDP-LABAN presidential candidate, has been appointed head of the Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority (SBMA).

Diño’s appointment was dated September 23, 2016. He replaced former SBMA chair Roberto Garcia.

He is also the father of Liza Diño, the partner of singer Aiza Seguerra. Last month, Liza was designated as chairperson of the Film Development Council of the Philippines.
At the same time, Seguerra was appointed National Youth Commission chairperson.

Garcia had earlier announced the appointment of Diño to SBMA employees but said he would hold his office until the appointment paper was released and brought to his office.

The elder Diño’s term will last until June 30, 2022 or a duration of six years.

Diño was the initial PDP-LABAN standard bearer for the May 2016 presidential election but he later withdrew and nominated Duterte as his substitute.
