Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) Secretary Ronaldo Puno swore in Adiong as acting governor of the ARMM in December 2009. As Vice Governor, Adiong moved up to replace Zaldy Ampatuan, who was taken into military custody for his alleged involvement in the November 2009 massacre of 57 civilians in Maguindanao.[1]

Congress[edit]

Along with three other Liberal Party members, Alonto left in May 2017 and transferred to PDP–Laban, the current ruling political party of the Philippines.[2]
