Vice President Leni Robredo is grateful to Presidential Communication Assistant Secretary Mocha Uson for sharing a Twitter poll in which she garnered the most votes as possible next Department of Social Welfare and Development Secretary.

In her weekly radio show Biserbisyong Leni at RMN, Robredo said she was surprised that Uson, a solid supporter of President Rodrigo Duterte included her among the choices.

"Unang-una, medyonnagulat ako na sinama niya iyong pangalan ko. Nagpapasalamat na din tayo kay Asec. Mocha Uson na nagpapkita siguro na may tiwala na pwede tayong humawak ng ganitang kabugat na puwesto," said Leni.

She furter said that she is more grateful to the people who showed their trust by voting her in the poll.

"Mas malaki sigurong pagpapasalamat sa mga nagpagay na ako iyong preference bila, kasi pagpapakita na tinitiwalaan tayo sa ganitong larangan," she said.

Robredo was appointed as the Housing and Urban Development Coordinating Council chief however resigned due to irreconcilable differences with the President.
