MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – This may be a case of Musical Chairs (or, as Senator Grace Poe puts it, Trip to Jerusalem), except that we still don’t know who will lose his or her chair.
Philippine Information Agency (PIA) director-general Harold Clavite has publicly called on PCOO Asec Mocha Uson to go on leave, following that infamous ‘Pepedederalismo’ video with blogger Drew Olivar.
Uson has refused to apologize over the video but instead defended what critics have described as “offensive and in poor taste.”
But now, an overwhelming number of netizens want PCOO Secretary Martin Andanar to step down instead. (PIA is an agency under PCOO)
This, according to a non-scientific poll conducted on Facebook.
In the first 24 hours of what was supposed to be a six-day survey, 92.6% (after 312 votes and counting) of respondents chose Andanar over Uson on the question: ‘If only one of these PCOO officials will resign, who do you want it to be?”
So, let the music begin. Who’s going to be the last man or woman standing — or sitting — in this game of Musical Chairs?
