The sitting VP Leni Robredo is out of the loop again. She said that the government is still in the process of choosing Covid-19 vaccines. In reality, all countries do not have the privilege to choose. It’s first pay, first served basis on what is available. Only FDA approved in the country of origin which has the emergency use authorization from the Food and Drug Administration of the Philippines can be ordered, according to vaccine czar Carlito Galvez.
Negotiations and Priorities
Negotiations with Pfizer, Moderna, and AstraZeneca are in the finalization stage. This is for the first quarter of 2021 distribution. The Duterte administration aims to vaccinate majority of Filipinos. If not all citizens free of charge. Frontliners, medical workers and the poor are the first priorities. Localize injections fo through the health centers in each barangay. The process is alreadyin place like other existing vaccines. Why does Robredo needs a list?
Imee: Job Recovery Vaccine
Meanwhile, the DOLE announces that some 21,000 jobs here and abroad are up for grabs this week. It celebrates its 87th founding anniversary recently. However, Marcos said that the job vacancies make up less than 1% of the 3.8 million needed for Filipinos who are out of work. Senator Imee Marcos warns that millions of Filipinos will remain jobless if the government fails to craft a national policy for job recovery by the time Covid-19 vaccines are approved for public use.

The Liberal Party’s big loss with Ocho Diretso is the fruit of a “Bikoy” black media propaganda that backfires to the makers. Now, the Senate has the pro-Du30 supporters. In fact, both the majority and the minority are both allies of the Marcos-friendly administration. On top of that, the upper and lower houses are on the verge of voting for the new Senate President and Speaker of the House who can likely influence the Du30-Marcos connivance or vice versa. Watch closely the interview of Senator-elect Imee Marcos regarding the upcoming Presidential elections. Perhaps, not for her but for BBM.

Cannot Answer for the Presidential Plans of BBM
It is understandable that Senator Imee Marcos cannot answer for the presidential plans of her brother, Bongbong Marcos for the 2022 Presidential elections. However, at the rate it is going, there are signs that a Du30 and Marcos bet would be a tandem. The only question is who would run for President and Vice President. Sen. Marcos humbly said that BBM can’t even sit yet as Vice President because of the ongoing electoral protest against the presumptive VP, Leni Robredo. How much more the Presidency? As for her, it is not in her mind at all.
Sara Du30 as the Strongest Presidential Bet
Since most of the administration candidates top the recent 2019 elections, it is safe to say that the Presidential daughter is the strongest presidential bet for the time being. Sen. Marcos added that Mayor Du30 has the important qualities and supporters of a successful national leader. She can also easily nourish her experience in governance in the next 3 years. Needless to say, BBM is ripe for the Presidency but the black media propaganda against their father still haunts them.
Pay Back Time
Recently, President Rodrigo Du30 recommends to the Comelec not to use Smartmatic anymore in the 2022 Presidential elections. This is exactly the advocacy of Atty. Glenn Chong who now urges the Supreme Court to declare BBM as Vice President. Since both the LP and the pro-administration candidates accuse it of fraud, then it’s about time, the President said. Nevertheless, people should know that the poll body is an independent entity from the government.
The Hybrid System
In his recent vlog, BBM suggests the hybrid system for the next elections. The voting and counting must be manual he said. Then, the transmission results from the precincts to the Comelec can be digital. This way, transparency is certain with the use of live stream media.
The Unbeatable Connivance
The Du30-Marcos tandem is definitely unbeatable if the election is held right now. It is just a question of who would run for President and VP. Although Mayor Sara earlier jokes that she would rather run for Vice President. BBM is also more senior than her in politics but still has to make amends to the Du30 supporters who are not pro-Marcos.
