He was also the chairman of the Central Luzon Congressional Caucus and Party Whip Representative of Lakas-CMD in Region III. He is currently the Chairman of Lakas-CMD in Nueva Ecija.

Prior to his entry in politics in 2001, Gov. Oyie served as deputy commissioner of the National Telecommunications Commission. Prior to that, he was procurement and sub-contract director of Lucent Technologies. He was also senior partner of the Westwood Law Office, trust attorney of the Asset Privatization Trust, professor at the San Beda College, company lawyer of Eastern Shipping Lines, associate attorney at the Castro Law Office and legislative liaison officer at the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Legal Affairs of the Department of Education Culture and Sports.
