Congresswoman Mocha? Duterte backs Uson’s 2019 House bid


Former Presidential Communications Assistant Secretary Mocha Uson has obtained the support of President Duterte in her plan to run for congresswoman in the 2019 elections.

Uson went to Malacañang last Tuesday to meet the President days after she resigned from her post and announced her political plans.

“I will support you,” the President told Uson in a Facebook video.

Uson thanked the President and assured him of her undying support for his administration.

Duterte also made clear that Uson resigned, not fired from her government post. “I never fired Mocha. Siya yung nag-resign. All these years, when she was under heavy criticism, I supported her. Freedom of expression ‘yan,” he said.
