DILG XI welcomes new Undersecretary – Usec. Jonathan Malaya

The Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) Regional Office XI headed by Regional Director Alex C. Roldan, CESO V warmly welcomes the appointment of former DILG Assistant Secretary and Spokesperson Jonathan E. Malaya as the new Undersecretary of the Department.

Usec. Malaya formerly served as Assistant Secretary of the DILG Central Office in October 2017, Department of Education, Office of the Chief Presidential Legal Counsel and Office of the Solicitor General (on-detail).
He started his government service as a Supervising Legislative Staff Officer in the House of Representatives in 1998. His government service has brought him to the Supreme Court as Judicial Staff Head, Philippine Senate as Director II, and to the Pasay City Government as Public Information Officer.

RD Roldan says “this development is beneficial to us “Mindanaoans” because Usec. Malaya, as the head of DILG Center for Federalism and Constitutional Reform is a fervent advocate of Federalism. He is tireless in his efforts to show all Filipinos how Federalism can positively change governance for the better.”

“He can be assured of the support from the men and women of DILG XI,” he added.
