Executive Secretary Salvador Medialdea was irked by reports that Communication Assistant Secretary Mocha Uson has become the federalism spokesperson.

This was revealed by Presidential Communications Secretary Martin Andanar during a press conference on Monday.


“Medyo nga na bad trip si ES (Executive Secretary) nung kausap ko siya, kasi nga wala namang official announcements na merong spokespersons,” Anadar said.

“Na bad trip siya dun sa fact na umiikot sa media na si Asec. Mocha nga ang spokesperson na hindi naman,” he said.


Andanar also said Mediadea wanted more “talking heads” who were more informed about the topic of federalism.

“We already agreed last Tuesday na kung merong magsasalita, it’s going to be the members of the Con-Com, it’s going to be advocates of federalism na iaapprove ng federalism,” Andanar said.

Quoting Medialdea, Andanar said former Chief Justice Reynato Puno, former Senate President Aquilino Pimentel Jr, Fr. Ranhilio Aquino could be one of the spokespersons.   /vvp
