Presidential Bid with Unifying Leadership
Bongbong Marcos announces his presidential bid in the 2022 elections. It comes with a unifying leadership promise. He wants to face future challenges with the Filipino people. He said the Philippines will rise up again. Marcos may file his candidacy any time soon. No party details are available but the alliance with many parties is obvious.
Mark Villar with the Nacionalista Party
Rumors float that Mark Villar may be the VP tandem of Marcos. This is after the party endorses him. They intend to promote Marcos to as many voters as they can. However, this serves as a silent gesture. Since he is now the PFP chairman. Therefore, if that happens, they would run from different parties of the alliance.
Alliance with Bong Go and the President’s Daughter
Now that Marcos identifies himself with the PFP, Bong Go stands alone so far as VP under the PDP-Laban. Mayor Sara however does not have plans to move to that party. But Marcos’ party already seeks an alliance with Inday Sara’s Hugpong ng Pagbabago. So, the scenario might be for Marcos to run with Go under different parties or with the president’s daughter under the same Duterte alliance.
