Bongbong Marcos assures his nephew, Matthew Marcos Manotoc that there will be chaos in the election 2019 but there’s nothing to worry about. The whole family will be there beside him every step of the way. Manotoc is set to run as the next governor of Ilocos Norte. His mother, who vacated the position runs for Senator.

Lots of Teasing
Manotoc wants to be known as the sporty government official who loves to eat. He in fact refers to himself as Mr. Gluttony as his brother, Borgy calls him “matakaw.” He surely knows how to laugh at his weaknesses which is a very positive trait.
Dressing Up for the Occasion
The former Senator expresses his admiration to the young Board Member who has shown impressive moves in the past months or weeks. One major decision was to run for governor replacing his grandmother, Cong. Imelda Marcos who is already 89 years old. He is only 30 years old.
Senior Board Member Manotoc led the inaugural ceremonies of the new three-generational (3G) playgrounds and fitness parks recently. This is in the towns of Solsona, Sarrat, Vintar, Nueva Era, Banna, Marcos, Bangui, Burgos and Currimao. These projects are in line with his advocacy for more Ilocanos to adopt healthy and active lifestyles regardless of age.
Any Chance for Fariñas?
The young governor bet for Ilocos Norte runs head on against the greatest critic of his mother, Rep. Rudy Fariñas. The outcome of Imee Marcos’ ordeal brought about by the latter during the detention of the Ilocos 6 shows that Marcos has the power over him not just in their hometown but also in the branches of government. This puts Fariñas into a bad light.
Election 2019 Promise
Bongbong Marcos is another foundation of Manotoc aside from his mother. He swears to give is utmost support to his nephew without failing to warn him that it’s not going to be easy. However, they both have the mechanism and influence to put on the line for him to become the next governor of Ilocos Norte replacing ex-Gov. Marcos.
