Many supporters of Duterte were surprised that he chose Lopez instead of choosing someone from the leftist group who supported him throughout his election campaign. He also promise before that he will choose the DENR secretary where Carlos Isagani Zarate of Bayan Muna was the top choice by the leftist group.
The other government organizations were for Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) , Department of Labor and Employment (DENR) and Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) so, their surely will be someone from the group who will lead the remaining slots.
