[VIDEO]: People in the Philippines head to the polls Monday to choose their next president as the country’s controversial populist president’s six-year term comes to an end.
Bongbong Marcos is the Likely Successor Of President Duterte
Bongbong Marcos retains a strong lead during the polls today. Despite the bad reputation of his family due to the black media propaganda against them for more than 3 decades, he’s definitely well-loved by the people. Most people are looking forward to his reign even better than his father’s.
Two Sides of the Story
Most international media focuses on the dark side of the martial law regime. However, many witnesses have come forward that their lives were better then. They claim that the Marcoses did not do history revisionism. They were the truths. Only sensationalized by the media. Many activists and rebels suffered then but the law-abiding citizens lived well.
Bongbong Marcos as President
The detractors of Bongbong Marcos fear that he may be as brutal as the biased media painted the image of his father to be. But to the majority of the Filipinos, see hope, progress, and vital changes in the country with him as president. Therefore, foreigners must look at the sentiments of the majority of the Filipinos before calling him the son of a dictator.
