MANILA, Philippines — President Marcos has named a former lawmaker as chief of the Presidential Legislative Liaison Office (PLLO), which collaborates with Congress to promote the administration’s priority bills.

Former Batangas representative Mark Llandro Mendoza is now the presidential adviser on legislative affairs and PLLO head, the website of the agency showed.

Mendoza represented Batangas’ fourth district for three terms from 2007 to 2016. He served as secretary general of the House of Representatives under former speaker Lord Allan Velasco from November 2020 to July this year.

Other key officials of the PLLO include Undersecretaries Bernardino Sayo and Agapito Guanlao, who have been designated as presidential legislative assistants; Assistant Secretaries Rose Virginie Iñigo and Roberto Martin del Rosario, and Directors Rickee Gerald Brieva and Glenn Albano.
