MANILA, Feb. 11 – President Benigno S. Aquino III has appointed Deputy Ombudsman for Luzon Francis H. Jardeleza as the new Solicitor General following the resignation of Jose Anselmo Cadiz.

The Office of Executive Secretary Paquito N. Ochoa Jr. announced the appointment of Jardeleza on Saturday.

The newly-installed Solicitor General Jardeleza was formerly senior vice president and general counsel of the food and beverage giant San Miguel Corporation.

A graduate from the University of the Philippines (UP) College of Law, Jardeleza placed third in the 1974 Bar exams and completed his master of laws in Harvard University in the United States.

Last Feb. 6, President Aquino expressed his profound thanks and appreciation to outgoing Solicitor General Cadiz. He recognized Cadiz’s work that considerably contributed in achieving a reinvigorated Office of the Solicitor General. (PNA) scs/PCOO/js/utb
