Internet stars Ethel Booba and Mae Paner also known as Juana Change can have an opportunity to get access to President Duterte’s events under the new social media accreditation rules.
The social media personalities however must first pass the accreditation requirements including Presidential Security Group clearance, said Presidential Communications Assistant Secretary Kris Ablan.
“If Ethel Booba and Juana Change have at least 5,000 followers, that they can prove that they publish regular content, original or news content, and they’re Filipino citizens, and they’re at least 18 years of age, and they passed PSG clearance, then yes, they can cover the President,” Ablan said during a press confernce in Malacañang.
Reacting to the reports, Ethel appeared not interested in covering Duterte’s activities unless money was involved.
“However, I am not a legitimate blogger and I don’t have enough knowledge regarding that. How much the offer? Charot!” she said in jest.
