The island Senate approved by voice vote on Monday the appointment of Nino Correa Filomeno as commissioner of the Bureau for Emergency Management and Disaster Administration (NMEAD).


“Before the consideration of the body, the appointment of Mr. Nino Correa Filomeno as commissioner of the Bureau for Emergency Management and Disaster Administration,” Senate Vice President Marially González Huertas announced in the upper chamber before the vote. “Those senators who are in favor, say yes.”


“Yes,” the senators shouted in unison. “Those who are against say no,” González Huertas said, followed by silence. “Approved.”


On Feb. 7, the Appointments Committee chaired by Senate President José Luis Dalmau Santiago reviewed the appointment of Correa Filomeno, on which it noted that it had a positive report.


Correa Filomeno, despite receiving Honoris Causa doctoral degrees, completed his master’s degree as a requirement for holding the position.


Correa Filomeno has 23 years of experience in the agency and has served for the past three of those years as interim commissioner.
