Bloggers and different social media practioners can now apply for accreditation to cowl President Duterte and different actions in Malacañang.
President Communications Secretary Martin Andanar has issued Department No. 15 on the “interim social media practioner accreditation” within the Palace.
“Social media accreditation shall be issued to a Filipino Citizen who is at least 18 years of age with not less than 5,000 followers in any social media platform,” the order learn.
Under Andanar’s directive, the accreditation shall be free and voluntary. Interested events might file functions with the Social Media Office led by PCO Assistant Secretary Mocha Uson.
“Unless expressly specified, accreditation is understood to be on a per event/activity only,” it mentioned.
The press credentials could also be suspended or cancelled if there’s abuse of rights and privileges prolonged by the PCOO and such accreditation just isn’t used correctly.
