Law-making is not a stranger to the new Senator Imee Marcos. She was in Congress before. She is definitely not keen on vying for the Senate Presidency but hopes for the chairmanship in social welfare or local government – just like her brother, Bongbong Marcos. Bullying was evident during the campaign period. Many factions call her names. Robber, lier, and many more. However, Marcos remains forgiving. She even assures her detractors not to worry because of her disbelief in vengeance.

[VIDEO]: Senator-elect Imee Marcos talks about her plans in the Senate to fulfill her campaign promises
First Time Win of a Marcos in Cebu
Senator Marcos said that it was a shocker to win the votes of Cebuanos. Cebu is known to be a bailiwick of the opposition but many people disagree with this. In fact, a reliable source said that a pro-Marcos priest arranges many campaign sorties of President Du30 who backs Marcos because of his admiration to the former first lady, Imelda Marcos. Sure enough, the Marcos matriarch considers her daughter’s win as her early 90th birthday gift.
Inday Sara Delivers in Davao
On top of the surprising votes, Inday Sara, the presidential daughter also delivers in Davao and other territories of the Du30’s and other Hugpong ng Pagbabago candidates. The Marcos-Du30 votes really prove to be unbeatable these days. This is a good hint for the tandem for 2022.
The North Remembers and Ignores the Bullying
The new senator is happy with the outcome of the North. They really remembered, she added. The bullying has no effect on them because they know the real score as far as the Marcoses are concerned. Most of them are even fed up with the repeated accusations against her.
Touching on the Issues Thrown
Marcos firmly says that although Princeton denies that she is a graduate of the school, she is officially a member of the alumni. She just does not want to make speculations on how that happens. All she knows that she completes the curriculum just like her peers. There was also no problem in her admission to the UP until their negative statement just prior to the campaign period. After her victory, she wants to address poverty after profiling those who need help that can be productive and the one who need proper care.
Affordable Foods on the Table through Agriculture
Imports for the basic commodities must only be for emergency situations only. Boosting agricultural production is really the key to putting quality affordable food on the table daily. Her previous case in Ilocos Norte only proves that she is willing to go out of her way to help the farmers. She also warns her son, the successor of her gubernatorial task – not to approve almost all requests of his constituents to balance the province’s funds.
