Sen Nancy Binay today said she would recommend to Sen Kiko Pangilinan to invite Communucations Group Asst. Sec. Mocha Uson as one of the resource persons in the subsequent hearings of the Senate on the proposed charter change.

According to Binay, since Uson has been designated as one of the lead spokespersons in charge of raising public awareness about federalism, it would be best if she can present to the Senate the content of her campaign on federalism and the plan to change the 1987 Constitution.

Binay said Uson will be utilizing the P90-million earmarked by the Department of Interior and Local Government and Consultative Committe for the information campaign to educate the public about the Administration's plan to change the country's form of government.

"In light of the plans of DILG and the Consultative Committee to have Asec Mocha Uson as the lead evangelist of the Federalism Caravan, siguro mas maganda kung mai-invite ni Sen Kiko si Asec Mocha as one of the resource persons sa kanyang committee para mag-present sa Senado. Being the designated messenger, we also wanted to hear how she would articulate or interpret the salient points of the proposed federal charter and explain to the people how a shift in the form of government could move the country forward. Dagdag na rin ang kanyang iba pang concept or idea sa information campaign using social media," she pointed out.

"How the messenger relays the message is important. Clarity and knowledge about the subject are equally important elements. It is also a matter of providing the people of options, or an informed choice for them to genuinely know what's good and bad about changing the form of government. Kailangan ng bawat Pilipino na maintindihan at maunawaan kung kailangan nga ba federalismo. Kailangan ay mas palalimin at palawigin pa ang debate tungkol dito," she said.
