[VIDEO]: Former Senator Bongbong Marcos downplayed President Rodrigo Du30’s comment for him to succeed the president.
Du30 wants a better-qualified person to be able to succeed him. This is according to Harry Roque, the presidential spokesperson. Quoting Roque, “If there’s a better leader or if there’s a qualified leader to take over and he has said that Senator Bongbong Marcos is one of the better-qualified leaders to succeed him, if there are developments and he will win the protest and he becomes vice president, yes, he will make true on his word.”
The economy is the Priority
The improvement of our economy is one of the objectives, as Marcos says. We must also prioritize the interests of the consumers as we improve on the economy. Marcos believes that Du30 is doing good on the economy right now. But still, the President is remarking that if Marcos would only be guaranteed as a successor, he would like to give up the presidency.
Top 3 Not Needed
Being asked about three top priorities, Marcos answers that we only need to think of the “return of good governance.”. This is despite the issues his father faced from his term that is historically known for graft and corruption. It’s been more than 30 years after the late Marcos’ removal from power. Not anyone court can pin him down on the alleged corruption cases. The only evidence that is still in use until the current time is the massive infrastructure project. These are from bridges to hospitals that the masses continue to enjoy.
Democracy Moves On
The PCGG was created by Cory Aquino with the purpose of recovering the wealth allegedly amassed by Marcos through the government. However, Bongbong explains that with the cases filed by the PCGG nothing have prospered. Furthermore, Congress is forwarding a bill that would abolish the PCGG. Bongbong is interpreting this as a hint for the country to move on from these already resolved issues and focus on the issues we are facing now.
The Masses are the Priority
Marcos is stressing that consumer interest will be at the forefront of his administration. He is citing the concern House Speaker Gloria Macapagal Arroyo has on the issues the economy is facing. Immediately, on her first week as leader of the House of Representatives, she held dialogues with the economic managers of the country. Marcos praises her on that move. Obviously, the changes in the government are now leaning towards his future takeover. The President also did not fail to warn people about this upcoming big change.
