Senator Grace Poe is demanding an explanation from Presidential Communications Secretary Martin Andanar about the department’s proposed higher budget for 2019.

Poe said PCOO was getting a P100 million increase in the proposed 2019 budget while other government agencies were incurring budget cuts.

“What are the deliverables? Are memes and blogs also hit by inflationary spikes? Is the cost of feeding the nation with government information adversely affected by TRAIN, too? Will the PCOO be hiring campaigners to explain federalism?” Poe asked the PCOO.

Under the 2019 budget proposal, the PCOO will receive a P1.41-billion budget, higher than this year’s P1.38 billion budget.
