President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos has tapped Diorella Maria “Lala” Sotto-Antonio, daughter of former Senate president Vicente Sotto III, as the new chairperson of the Movie and Television Review and Classification Board (MTRCB).
Antonio took her oath of office on Thursday, July 7.
In a post on her Facebook page, Antonio thanked the President for trusting in her and naming her as the new MTRCB chairperson.
The former Senate president also expressed his gratitude for appointing his daughter in the post.
“Thanking the President for the trust and confidence. I believe she will do well given her background. Besides, she has two excellent women former chairpersons to emulate, Senator Grace Poe and Congresswoman Rachel Arenas,” Sotto said.
Antonio has served three terms as a councilor in Quezon City’s third district and another three terms in the city’s sixth district.
