President Ferdinand 'Bongbong' Marcos Jr. has named former Court of Appeals (CA) Associate Justice Melchor Quirino Sadang as the new chairman of the Presidential Commission on Good Governance (PCGG).

In a Facebook post on Monday, the Presidential Communications Office (PCO) said Sadang will be heading the agency that is tasked to recover the ill-gotten wealth of the Marcos family and their associates.

Sadang, who retired from the CA in 2017, will be replacing John Agbayani. He is the fifth appointee and the second justice from the appellate court appointed by Marcos in the agency.

Aside from him, the PCO also announced the appointments of Ethel Agnes Valenzuela as commissioner of the Commission on Higher Education and Asis Perez as undersecretary of the Department of Agriculture.
