Former Pangasinan representative Rachel Arenas has been appointed chairwoman of the Movie And Television Review And Classification Board.

She is the daughter of socialite and philanthropist Rose Marie “Baby” Arenas

The MTRCB was created in 1985 through Presidential Decree No. 1986 and is mandated to regulate and classify motion pictures, television programs, and publicity materials among others. 

It is composed of a chairman, vice chairman, and 30 board members, all of which are appointed by the President.

Earlier this year, sexy dancer and blogger Margaux "Mocha" Uson was appointed MTRCB board member. She is known to be a staunch supporter of President Rodrigo Duterte.
