Mocha Uson finds it ‘exciting’ to study about federalism
Former sexy star and now Communications Assistant Secretary Mocha Uson finds it “exciting” to study about how federalism works.
In an ambush interview on Friday, Uson said she was excited for her new role as the government’s social media influencer in campaigning for a shift to a federal form of government.
“Sa pag-uusap namin kanina, napaka-exciting, napakaganda ng pederalismo. Kailangan malaman ng ordinaryong tao na mas giginhawa pala ang kanilang buhay,” Uson told reporters.
Uson met with officials from the Presidential Communications Operations Office (PCOO) and Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) to discuss how to orchestrate a nationwide campaign for federalism.
The Communications official also met with Ding Generoso, spokesperson of the Consultative Committee (Con-com) that drafted the proposed federal Constitution.
“Ang gagawin ko po ngayon ay isisimplify ko po itong pederalismo sa social media para maintindihan ng ordinaryong tao kung ano ito,” Uson said.
While some members of the Con-com were lukewarm to the idea of giving Uson a role in the information drive, the former starlet said she saw it as a challenge to study harder about federalism.
“Sa akin, challenge iyon na pag-aralan mabuti itong pederalismo, at ang magandang nangyayari ngayon, merong pagbabatikos. Ang importante, napapag-usapan na. Panahon na para pag-usapan itong pederalismo na tinutulak ni Pangulong Duterte,” Uson said. /vvp
