Like a lapdog! Mocha Uson running in 2019 on Cayetano’s prodding
Former sexy starlet Mocha Uson may be a Diehard Duterte Supporter (DDS), but her true master is none other than Foreign Affairs Secretary Alan Peter Cayetano.
A source told Politiko that Uson will be running in the 2019 party-list race on Cayetano’s prodding.
The source said Uson was open to running for either the Senate or House, but it was decided that she will become a party-list nominee instead since there’s a higher chance for her to win a seat at the House of Representatives that way.
Under the law, 20 percent of the seats in the House is reserved for party-list representatives.
Uson, who announced her resignation as Communications Assistant Secretary Wednesday (October 3), is being eyed as the first nominee of ACTS-OFW party-list. The group is currently represented in the House by Rep. John Bertiz.
However, it’s not just Uson who Cayetano is goading to run.
Politiko’s source said the Foreign Affairs Secretary wants Special Assistant to the President Christopher “Bong” Go and Bureau of Corrections chief Ronald “Bato” Dela Rosa for senator.
The source said Cayetano sees the 2019 elections as a proxy war for those who want to run for national posts in 2022.
Thus, he believes having minions– allies, rather– in both Houses of Congress will serve him well in his bid to run for president four years from now.
