Andanar out? Veteran Newscaster to replace Andanar as the next PCOO Secretar

Speculations are now brewing as veteran newscaster and talk show host, Jay Sonza may thrive as the ‘NEXT’ Presidential Communications Secretary succeeding the now Presidential Communications Operations Office (PCOO) Secretary Martin Andanar.

This, following some ‘downright humiliation’ that happened during Andanar’s leadership.

Reports said that Sonza showed his interest in the said post and is backed by his close affiliation with Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte despite the number of his possible critics.

Should Sonza’s appointment takes place, Andanar will be transferred to another agency yet it is unclear whether or not he shall ‘retain’ his current Cabinet post or yield to demotion.

Meanwhile, Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) Secretary Silvestre Bello hinted how PCOO Officials wanted to ‘REMOVE’ Assistant Secretary Mocha Uson from her post.

In a Build,Build,Build Conference recently held, it can be heard that Bello mentioned Uson’s fate by recounting conversation with Andanar following the controversial ‘pepedederalismo’ video that drew mixed reactions online.

“Nakiusap sa akin (Sec. Martin Andanar), ‘Pwede ko bang ilipat si Mocha sa ‘yo?’…” Bello said.

It is unclear, however, if that was connected to earlier reports suggesting that several PCOO Officials wanted Mocha to vacate her position after the controversial video surfaced.

PCOO Officials moved to oust Uson from office for allegedly violating Section 4(b) of the Code of Conduct and Ethical Standards for Public Officials and Employees (Republic Act 6713).

Andanar, however, defended that no such intent has reached his desk for evaluation.
