Will Mark Leviste get appointed to a gov’t post?

Jan 11, 2017 @ 18:50

The former Batangas vice-governor joined happy appointees of President Rodrigo Duterte in a ceremony in Malacañang. Is he preparing for a post himself?

Mark Leviste turned into a fanboy of sorts as he joined the mass oath-taking ceremonies for Duterte’s latest batch of appointees on Tuesday, Jan. 10. The politiko flitted across the historic Rizal Hall as he took selfies with the appointees, among them his friend Frisco San Juan as deputy chairman of the Metro Manila Development Authority, and actor Cesar Montano as head of the Tourism Promotions Board.

But what was more intriguing was his presence there, coupled with a hint that he dropped at the comments section where he just might get his own oath-taking before Duterte by May.

Under the law, politikos who lost the elections cannot be appointed to a public post until a year after the polls. With his defeat to Batangas Gov. Dodo Mandanas last year, Leviste is free to go by May 9, 2017.

What post, you ask? Stay tuned!
