President Rodrigo Roa Duterte previously said that he wished for a lawyer-President as his successor. However, his political party endorsed Bongbong Marcos for president recently. He’s not a lawyer but his wife, Liza Araneta Marcos is.
Advising in Private
However, recent developments seem to support that the president’s anointed successor is no other than Bongbong Marcos. Bong Go reveals anew that the president is advising BBM in private. They talk about how to be president of the country. Now, it looks like the outgoing Filipino leader will simply be an adviser to the BBM-Sara government. Besides, Marcos’ running mate and the president’s daughter is also a lawyer. So, Marcos will never go astray with regards to laws here and abroad.
Future Senior Adviser to the President BBM
President Duterte simply fits well to the job of Senior Adviser to President BBM. Senator Go refuses to confirm President Duterte’s endorsement of Marcos. But for most people, this is a done deal, even if he’s not a lawyer.
