Filipinos need hope. Ferdinand R. Marcos’ greatest fear is dying without making a difference. There’s no other political personality right now who is that able and with all the reasons and capabilities to make his countrymen happy as the namesake of the late President Ferdinand E. Marcos. Now is the time, amidst the pandemic to serve in whichever way possible. The 2022 election is still far behind.
Bongbong Marcos is Ready
It may be true that the people need such a leader that could sacrifice their time away from his family. He had a taste of Covid-19 already. His loved ones understand more than anyone his purpose in life. Can the Filipino people appeal for his services before the elections?
There’s a Life in Making People Happy
Family and his own happiness are not enough for such a man. He needs to fulfill his duty for his people. The right time for him to take part in the government can be unconventional. Given the present condition of the country during the pandemic. As the coronavirus infections and the economic situation worsen, please hear the call of your people!

BBM and Atty. Glenn Chong
To have a clean election is Atty. Glenn Chong’s long-term advocacy. This is long before the Vice Presidential fiasco in 2016. That leads to former Senator Bongbong Marcos’ electoral protest against the current Vice President Leni Robredo. Her camp speculates that Chong is under Marcos’s payroll. His track records show otherwise. This is the first time that BBM announces his support to Chong’s advocacy on a recent video.
Likely Support for an Election Advocacy
The national election in 2022 is fast approaching. BBM is certain to run for the executive office. He did not confirm yet the exact position. Many hope that he will run for President. Despite his alliance with President Rodrigo Duterte, Marcos favors the recommendation of Atty. Chong. He said that his hybrid election recommendation is indeed the right one. This is to discourage any digital manipulation.
The Election Protest Update
The Marcos loyalists urge the Supreme Court to make a decision on the Marcos-Robredo election protest. As per the developments, the verdict can happen only as the VP term comes to an end. The President already assures the opposition that Robredo would definitely finish her term. Nonetheless, he swears to give what is due to Marcos in the next elections. The ABS-CBN shut down and the fate of the oligarchs seem to be in line with this promise. They were instrumental to the downfall of the late President Ferdinand Marcos.
The father of Sinulog in Cebu, David Odilao or Boy as he is fondly called, speaks highly of the late President Ferdinand E. Marcos. He mentions at the 888 New Forum, Marco Polo Hotel that the notable leader was very particular on his appointees. He always looked for someone who did not need to acquire wealth anymore. In fact, as Regional Director of the former Ministry of Sports and Youth Development originally, he started the Sinulog festival. Odilao’s designation then was not directly linked to the late President. General Fabian C. Ver made his recommendation. Odilao shares his insights on Bongbong Marcos’ candidacy for the upcoming election given his experience in dealing with politicians.

Odilao added that during the Marcos regime, there were many projects that made a difference. Initiatives were supported. He then urged the audience to continue contributing to society regarless of who sits as president. When asked about Bongbong Marcos’ running for a national position in 2022, he said that he has learned in his life to look at what a candidate can do for the country and not the family name.
Wait and See for Bongbong Marcos
Odilao might be a fan of the father but he advises to wait and see for the son. One should look at other candidates as well, he explained. As of now, he can only say “no comment” for Bongbong Marcos’ election bid in 2022. It’s better to be neutral for the time being for him. There’s no doubt that he has many friends from the different political parties.
Balik Baroto Regatta
The first “Sinulog sa SRP” on Friday features two events: the colorful “Balik Baroto Regatta” in the morning and a fireworks musical competition in the evening. This takes place in the vicinity of the Il Corso Filinvest Lifestyle malls at South Road Properties. Odilao announces that there are 50 paddle and sailboats in the competition. These are for the two categories of baroto race and the baroto showcase of Sinulog relevance.
Strictly for Fishermen Only
Odilao stresses that only certified fishermen can join the competition. This starts and ends at Il Corso while the participants have until SM Seaside City Cebu before their return to the starting line. For the baroto race, the first placer will get P100,000; second, P75,000; third, P50,000; fourth, P30,000; and fifth, P20,000. The sixth to tenth finishers will get P10,000 each while a consolation prize of P5,000 will be also given out. As for the baroto showcase, the first placer will get P50,000; second, P40,000; third, P30,000; fourth, P20,000; and fifth, P10,000 courtesy of the City of Cebu.
A National Open Eyed Before the Election in 2022
Odilao said when the event is successful, they intend to open the Regatta nationally next year. This is a year prior to 2022 national where Bongbong Marcos contemplates seeking a post. The Sinulog sa SRP was conceptualized by then SRP Management Office head Jose Daluz III. This was before his appointment to the Metropolitan Cebu Water District Board. Upon his resignation, Odilao assumes the responsibility to lead with Councilor Jerry Guardo. The latter oversees the Sinulog sa SRP.
By: Elena Grace Flores The tribunal asks both parties; should the court find basis for Marcos’ other cause – would it mean that to nullify the elections for all elective positions in the ballot is necessary? Or if a call for special election for the position of Vice President is a better solution. If so, who has the competence to call for such elections? the court asked. Since this is a democratic country, the people’s call could have much weight. Therefore, the loyalists may be cooking something at this time. Bongbong Marcos can only be thankful to his tireless supporters.

The SC Exercises Due Process of Law
Don’t undermine the court system, Supreme Court Associate Justice Marvic Leonen warns those who say that the high court, that acts as the Presidential Electoral Tribunal (PET), favors one candidate over the other. Its recent ruling on the poll protestof former Senator Marcos against the presumptive Vice President Leni Robredo may be a factor for this. The court is merely exercising due process and wantes all parties to have their say in the case before the tribunal rules after the 11-2 en banc votes on Marcos’ favor.
Robredo’s Lead Has 2 Interpretations
Lawyers for the Robredo and Marcos camps have different interpretations of the over 15,000 additional votes that Robredo gains in the tribunal’s revision and appreciation of ballots in Iloilo, Camarines Sur and Negros Oriental. These are the three pilot provinces that Marcos had chosen for recount. The PET releases its report which shows that the recount of votes in three pilot provinces chosen by Marcos increases Robredo’s lead by 15,093 votes. But Marcos spokesperson and lawyer Vic Rodriguez said the vote gain was “outrageous” and was the reason why the tribunal voted not to dismiss the Marcos protest outright. It does not answer the questions where do they come from and where are the INC members’ votes?
Deep Throat Informer
The Marcos lawyer also claims that the leak from the Robredo camp indicates that someone from the tribunal offices spies for the Vice President. “It only confirmed our suspicion that Mrs. Robredo’s premature celebration and claim of another fake victory in the tribunal was a product of advance information she’s been receiving all along through a highly placed ‘deep throat,’” he said. He refers to the anonymous source of information that exposes then US President Richard Nixon’s culpability in the Watergate scandal in the late ’70s.
A Special Election for the VP Post May Settle the Dispute
The tribunal said it “will chart a way forward after the initial revision and recount. It allows the parties the fullest opportunity to make their case consistent with due process of law. The resolution is not against the protestant or the protestee. Among the queries that both sides must comment on is whether or not the revision and appreciation of votes in the three pilot provinces renders unnecessary. This is Marcos’ other cause of action. It seeks to annul the election results for the VP post in the provinces of Maguindanao, Lanao del Sur and Basilan which are proven fraudulent in another protest.

While the misunderstanding causes chaos among the Marcos loyalists because of misinterpretations of the President’s comments, Bongbong Marcos praises the President for personally pushing Smartmatic out. This then results to the formation of the electoral reforms senate committee where Senator Imee Marcos is the chairwoman. Changes in the electoral protest proceedings are necessary because they made the plight of the protestants difficult, said Marcos.

Impeachment Does Not Benefit Bongbong Marcos Directly
Bongbong Marcos agrees that he cannot benefit directly from the impeachment of the presumptive Vice President, Leni Robredo if the complaint against her is successful – unless he is nominated and approved by the Senate. In short, nominated by the Senate, appointed by the President for a cabinet position, and confirmed by the Congress.
Sol Gen Calida’s Hand for BBM
Marcos also denies his involvement with Solicitor General Jose Calida’s assisting the filing of the sedition case against Robredo. They are not close friends, he said. It just happens that it’s the mandate of Calida’s office as the lawyer of the government.
The President’s Campaign Promise
Like the Endo, president Du30 himself already discloses his wish to get rid of Smartmatic. Although its removal is not in his hands, the formation of Senator Marcos’ electoral reforms committee arises because of that. As what the lawmaker said, it’s purely constitutional and not presidential. Changes in the election laws are necessary. It’s only Smartmatic that would qualify as the election device provider at the present time.
The Importance of Unity
Former Senator Marcos is confident that if given the chance to be Vice President for just a short time, he can still make a substantial contribution to the government because the two of them are on the same page. The alliance is a powerful bond because this allows the continuity of the President’s projects. Not to mention the possible turnover of the presidency from Du30 to Marcos as promised during the election campaign period.
