Mocha open to run for 2019 Senatorial elections
Former Presidential Communications Operations Office (PCOO) Assistant Secretary Mocha Uson said
she is open to run for the 2019 midterm elections, but is not yet sure whether to seek a seat at the Senate or the House of Representatives.
Senator, Congress, hindi ko po alam, pero open po tayo (I don’t know, but I am open for that),” she said in
an ambush interview on Wednesday when asked if she plans to enter politics, shortly after announcing her
resignation from the PCOO during a Senate hearing.
She said her candidacy still depends on the pulse of the voting public.
“Kasunod po ng sinabi ni Pangulo na let the people decide (I will follow what the President said, that we should
let the people decide),” she said, besides noting that she will proceed with her possible bid based on the comments of her supporters in her Facebook page.
Commanding legislative issues
Uson said she is “frustrated” over how the “same faces” have been dominating politics, and stressed that ordinary
Filipinos should have a voice in the government.
Uson said she is “baffled” over how “similar appearances” have been commanding legislative issues, and focused
on that conventional Filipinos ought to have a voice in the administration.
Approached if running for legislative issues is one of her alternatives in giving Filipinos that voice in government,
she stated: “Siguro po (maybe).”
“Mahiya naman kayo. Matagal nang pare-parehong mukha ang nandiyan (You ought to be embarrassed.
You with same countenances have for some time been there),” she said.
Uson likewise regretted that congresspersons have been hindering the financial plan of the PCOO in light
of her situation in the office. She said this was the motivation behind why she surrendered.
Meanwhile, Uson, a savage supporter of President Rodrigo Duterte, said that she will take the battle to the House of Representatives or the Senate, and included that she will now be fiercer in web based life after her renunciation.
