Will Mocha Uson run in the 2019 Senatorial race?

  • Mocha Uson states that the possibility of her running as Senator depends on her page’s Facebook comments.
  • She added that the reason for her resignation was to sacrifice her position in order to obtain PCOO’s proposed budget for 2019.

Mocha Uson recently shocked everyone when she resigned from her position at the Presidential Communications Operations Office (PCOO).

The move made people think about the reason behind the sudden turn of events. One question that is commonly asked regarding Uson’s resignation is “will she run in the 2019 senatorial race?”

On a budget hearing at the Senate on Wednesday, October 3, the former assistant secretary said that it will depend on her Facebook followers.

“Let the people decide. Mga kababayan naman natin nasa Facebook na, malalaman natin ‘yung sentimyento nila doon.

“Kung ano po ang mababasa kong comments sa Facebook, kung ano po ang sasabihin ng supporters doon, dun ko titignan.”

Uson added that her resignation was a “sacrifice” for the proposed ₱1 Billion budget for the PCOO for next year to be approved immediately by Congress as many do not approve of her. 

“Tila mayroon pong mga kongresista na iniipit ang budget ng PCOO. Ito pong mga makakaliwang kongresista, galit na galit po sa akin.”

“Taon-taon ay sinasabihan ako na huwag punahin ang ilang mga mababatas para hindi ipitin ang budget ng PCOO. Nakakagalit man ngunit ganyan ang sistema natin sa kasalukuyan. Bulok man ngunit ito kelangang sundin.

At dahil dyan, ako na ang magsasakripisyo para maipasa na ang budget ng PCOO. Ako ay nagdesisyon nang magresign.”

She also gave a message to her critics, saying that they haven’t won yet.


“Para sa mga bumabatikos sa akin, huwag kayong magkakamaling isipin na nagtagumay kayo. Hindi ako nagbitiw sa position dahil takot akong harapin kayo. Gusto ko lang na pag nagkaharap tayo patas ang laban.”
