Poe wants probe of P90-M federalism info campaign

Sen. Grace Poe has filed a resolution calling for an inquiry into the government’s P90-million information drive on the proposed shift to a federal form of government, following the controversial “pepe-dederalismo” video by President Communications Operation Office Assistant Secretary Margaux “Mocha” Uson.

Poe, chairperson of the Senate Committee on Public Information and Mass Media, filed Senate Resolution 821 seeking a “transparency guide” from President Duterte’s Consultative Committee and the PCOO on their information campaign about federalism.

Poe noted Uson’s participation in the government’s information dissemination drive and her recent video with a blogger who danced a lewd jingle on federalism.

Uson’s video, Poe said, “reeks of impropriety to the Con-com nor it helps elevate public discourse” on the government’s push for Charter change and transition towards a federal system. (Vanne Elaine P. Terrazola)
