President Rodrigo Duterte has tapped one of his presidential advisers, Ramon “RJ” Jacinto, as the new undersecretary of the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT), Malacañang announced on Tuesday.

In a press statement, Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque said Jacinto’s appointment paper was signed on May 22.

Roque said Jacinto’s new designation was “co-terminus with the appointing authority”.

Jacinto’s appointment came after Duterte recently accepted the resignation of DICT Undersecretary Eliseo Rio Jr. who resigned on January 31 this year.

Roque said the Palace was confident that Jacinto would be able to fulfill his job as the new DICT official.

“We are confident that Usec. Jacinto will serve DICT with dedication and integrity and will contribute to achieving the Department’s mandate under the current administration,” he said.

Before his new stint, Jacinto served as the Presidential Adviser on Economic Affairs and Information Communications Technology, with the rank of undersecretary.

Jacinto, a musician, and businessman campaigned for Duterte in the 2016 presidential elections. He also composed a campaign jingle for Duterte.

Jacinto graduated with honors from the Ateneo de Manila with a degree in Economics.

Jacinto continued his studies by taking up law at the University of Santo Tomas in Manila. (PNA)
