He is the last of President Joseph Estrada’s Cabinet to face the Commission on Appointments (CA) and although he says he has the President’s support, Puno is being made to go through what seems to be the eye of a needle.
To be sure, Puno is not the first Cabinet appointee to face objections regarding his confirmation by the Commission, which has so far approved all of Estrada’s nominees.

Puno has since denied the reports.
