Lingayen-Dagupan Archbishop Socrates Villegas is the new head of the Catholic Bishops' Conference of the Philippines (CBCP). The 53-year-old prelate was elected at the 107th Plenary Assembly of the CBCP being held at the Pope Pius XII Catholic Center in Paco, Manila. Villegas is currently serving his first term as CBCP vice president together with CBCP president Cebu Archbishop Jose Palma.

Villegas elected CBCP president - Yahoo! News Philippines: "Villegas is a known protégé and confidante of the late Manila Archbishop Jaime Cardinal Sin, having served as Cardinal Sin's private secretary and spokesperson for nearly two decades.
The president and the vice-president are elected for two-year terms and can serve for a minimum of two terms. By tradition, they are reelected for their second and last term.
In CBCP history also, members of the permanent council enjoy two terms in office, with the vice president normally succeeding the president when his term expires." CLICK LINK TO READ MORE
