MANILA - Singer Margaux "Mocha" Uson has been appointed as a board member of the Movie And Television Review And Classification Board (MTRCB), Executive Secretary Salvador Medialdea said Thursday.

MTRCB regulates and classifies motion pictures, television programs, and publicity materials.

Uson's appointement was made on January 3, officials said.

When asked why the sexy dance group leader was given a government post, Communications Secretary Martin Andanar said, "Why not?"

Uson has been supporting President Rodrigo Duterte since the campaign season through her Facebook page "Mocha Uson blog."
