Ma-promote kaya? DDS BFF Pebbles Duque eyes Mocha Uson’s post


An executive within the Presidential Communications Operations Office (PCOO) may soon be promoted to Assistant Secretary with the resignation of Mocha Uson.

Politiko has learned that PCOO Communications Director Pebbles Duque wants to fill the post Uson left behind.

Duque, a niece of Health Secretary Francisco Duque III, is known to be close to Duterte Diehard Supporters (DDS), or online personalities supportive of the administration.

She figured in a controversy last July for allegedly demanding for expensive food items when she and her team from PCOO demanded for expensive food items.

Uson said she resigned as a “sacrifice” amid some lawmakers’ bid to defer the approval of PCOO’s budget until she attends the hearings at the House of Representatives.

A source told Politiko, however, that Uson will be fielded as the first nominee of ACTS-OFW party-list in the 2019 elections.
