Kris Ablan shares long journey in PH politics after PCOO promotion
Presidential Communications Operations Office Undersecretary Kris Ablan shares his long journey to success in public service.
The abogado jumped off his loss to Representative Rudy Farinas and how it brought him to work in NGOs before reentering government service.
A little more than 10 years ago, I chased my lifelong dream and ran for Congress. I lost, by a large margin, to Rudy…
After working in the Private Public Partnership Office and COMELEC, the abogado decided to submit his application to work for Press Secretary Martin Andanar. Ablan mentioned that he was lucky to be appointed Assistant Secretary by President Rodrigo Duterte.
The abogado said he then worked on the Freedom of Information before he went through the Career Executive Service process. Luckily, he received CESO Rank II and was promoted by Andanar and Duterte to Undersecretary.
He wrote, “A promotion tastes sweetest when one works hard for it. And I worked hard for it.”
Congrats, Mr. Abogado!
