Malungkot ang mga taong nagnanais ng matinong gobyerno sa pag-reject ng Commission on Appointments kay ka Judy Taguiwalo bilang Social Welfare an Development Secretary.
 
Marami ang nalungkot na na-reject si Environment and Natural Resources Secretary Gina Lopez ng Commission on Appointments.
 
Ang ginawa lang naman ni Sec Gina ay binangga niya ang mga dambuhalang minahan na sumira sa kalikasan.
 
Ipinasara ni Sec Gina ang mga minahan na malaki na ang kinita sa yaman mula sa ilalim ng lupa.
 
Hindi naman siya  corrupt, hindi naman siya inefficient…nagsilbi lang siya sa bayan. Kaya ayon.. rejected ng Commision on Appointments.
 
Sa loob ng panunungkulan ni Sec Judy ay walang iskandalao na yumanig sa kanya o sa DSWD.
 
Sa mga sakuna na dulto ng bagyo oa sa sakuna ng Marawi ay tahimik na ginagampanan ni Sec Judy ang kanyang tungkulin na magsilbi sa bayan.
 
Ang isang dahilan sa rejection ni Sec Judy ay ang kanyang inilabas na Memorandum Circular No. 9 kung saan sinunod niya ng sabi ng Korte Suprema na iligal ang PDAF o pork barrel.
 
Narito po ang mga rason kung bakit nag-issue si Sec Judy ng Memo Circular No 9 (hindi ko na translate para para hindi ma-dilute):
 
Guide the DSWD Field Offices (FOs) nationwide in the implementation of the Protective Services Program (PSP), particularly their treatment of referral letters from individuals, groups of individuals, or organization, including public officials whether national or local executives, legislators, members of the judiciary, or constitutional commission;
 
To ensure adherence to the decision of the Supreme Court which declared the PDAF unconstitutional and the Commission on Audit Memorandum;
To enhance the DSWD’s performance of its mandate as the government’s frontline agency in social protection;
To uphold the dignity of DSWD social workers and personnel involved in the implementation of the PSP, as well as ensure their physical safety; and
To promote the fair and equitable implementation of the PSP.
Sec. Taguiwalo explained that MC9 covers the implementation of PSP by all FOs and offices, bureaus, services, and units (OBSUs) that are, or in the future may be tasked to implement the PSP.

 
In the MC9, it is clarified once and for all that:
Referral letters from individuals, groups of individuals, or organization, including public officials whether national or local executives, legislators, members of the judiciary, or constitutional commission are NOT integral to the implementation of the PSP;
 
While referral letters may be considered, they are NOT binding on DSWD social workers or personnel tasked to evaluate the qualifications of beneficiaries; and
 
The DSWD retains SOLE AUTHORITY to determine the beneficiaries of the program pursuant to existing guidelines. As such, DSWD social workers or personnel tasked to evaluate the qualification of beneficiaries are enjoined to strictly adhere to MC9 and to existing circulars prescribing guidelines for the implementation of the PSP.
 
To ensure the safety of DSWD workers and personnel, cash disbursements shall be conducted only within the premises of the DSWD offices.
 
Order din ni Sec Judy na“There will be special guidelines issued when and how payment outside DSWD offices/premises may be made.  Also, those DSWD staff involved in implementing the PSP are required to report to the Office of the Secretary any threat or attempt to pressure or circumvent the provisions of MC9 so I and the appropriate DSWD office can take the necessary action and provide support to the DSWD social worker or personnel under threat.”
 
Maliwanag na masunurin sa batas si Sec Judy. Sinunod niya ang desisyon ng Korte Suprema.
 
Maliwanag na ayaw ni Sec Judy sa patronage politics. Hindi na kailangan ng recommendation letter para makatikim ng serbisyo mula sa DSWD.
 
Inalis ni Ka Judy ang kalakaran na pumupunta pa ang mahihirap kay congressman para kumuha ng recommendation letter.
 
Inalis ni Ka Judy ang pakikialam ng congressman sa budget ng DSWD.
 
Maliwanag na ang kapakanan ng mangagawa sa gobyerno ay pinahahalagahan ni Sec Judy. Hindi niya inilalagay sa lalanganin ng mga taga-DSWD.
 
Ano po ba ang naging batayan ng Commission on Appointments sa rejection kay Sec Judy?
 
Not qualified po ba si Ka Judy? Grossly inefficient po ba si Ka Judy? Corrupt po ba si Ka Judy?
 
Ano po bang klaseng hayop ang Commission on Appointments?
 
The Commission on Appointments (CA) is a body of the Congress of the Philippines as provided by the Constitution. It confirms certain appointments made by the President of the Philippines. Article VII, Section 16 of the 1987 Constitution reads:
 
“The President shall nominate and, with the consent of the Commission on Appointments, appoint the heads of the executive departments, ambassadors, other public ministers and consuls, or officers of the armed forces from the rank of colonel or naval captain, and other officers whose appointments are vested in him in this Constitution. He shall also appoint all other officers of the Government whose appointments are not otherwise provided for by law, and those whom he may be authorized by law to appoint. The Congress may, by law, vest the appointment of other officers lower in rank in the President alone, in the courts, or in the heads of departments, agencies, commissions, or boards.”
 
Sa present na CA ay may 13 na senador at 12 na members ng House of Representatives for total of 25.
 
Ang mga nasa CA na mula sa Senado ay sina: Koko Pimentel (boboto lang to break tie), Migs Zubiri, Franklin Drilon, Kiko Pangilinan, Bam Aquino, Gringo Honasan, Ping Lacson, Loren Legarda, Tito Sotto III, Manny Pacquiao, Ralph Recto, Sonny Angara, at Cynthia Villar                 
 
Ang mga nasa CA na mula sa House of Representatives ay sina: Ronny Zamora, Jerry Treñas, Rodolfo T. Albano III, Benhur Salimbangon, Josephine Y. Ramirez-Sato, Julieta Cortuna, Roy Loyola, Abraham Tolentino, Weslie Gatchalian, Sandy Ocampo, Joel Mayo Almario, at Seth Frederick Jalosjos
 
Ayon sa isang source ang mga nag-reject kay Ka Judy ay ang mga sumusunod na members on Commission on Appointments:
 
1. 7th District of Cavite Rep. Abraham Tolentino
2. Davao Del Norte, 2nd District Rep. Antonio Floirendo Jr.
