Supreme Court
By: Elena Grace Flores

Candidate for Senator, Imee Marcos recently reveals that her mother, Imelda Marcos’ initial gubernatorial candidacy and withdrawal is actually in the plan. They know that it is ridiculous for her to seek another elective office considering her age. They just need more time to convince the younger family members to run for the position as outgoing Gov. Marcos vies for the national position. This strategy is actually well-thought of as the Supreme Court starts to process the former First Lady’s cases. z

Substitution Strategy

The fight for the post of Ilocos Norte governor goes down between a Rodolfo Fariñas and Matthew Marcos Manotoc, Imelda Marcos’ grandson. Farinas, who is Ilocos Norte 1st District representative runs for governor in his home province as a substitute for Jesus Arimboyutan under the PDP-Laban political party. The 67-year-old Fariñas faces Manotoc, Marcos’ grandson and son of incumbent Ilocos Norte Governor and senatorial candidate Imee Marcos.

Due Course for the Iron Butterfly

The Sandiganbayan 5th Division starts proceedings for the transmittal of records of graft cases of Ilocos Norte Rep. Imelda Marcos. The anti-graft court said that they now prepare copies of the documents. The original records would be sent to the high court. The court also discloses that the notice of appeal that Marcos filed is “given due course.”

The Marcos Matriarch’s Request

In her notice of appeal, Marcos requests for the record transmission to the Supreme Court where she plans to challenge the Sandiganbayan decision. The Sandiganbayan convicts Marcos of 7 counts of graft last November 9. Her sentence of 6 to 11 years in jail for each count is pending as she is about to make an appeal to the high court.

Free on Bail

Rep. Marcos posts Php 300,000 bail as she appeals her conviction. Nonetheless, most mainstream media under the control of the opposition and their allies are quick enough to circulate massive negativity to malign her. Manotoc’s takeover neutralizes the black media propaganda. The move even made him look even much better.

Manotoc is Hot

It turns out that Manotoc is not only appealing to the millennials but also to all ages. Fariñas can’t stand a chance after his rudeness to the Ilocos 6. Now, it would be a big challenge for the Marcoses’ detractors to launch a character assassination stunt against the younger bet because it would be very obvious.

Bongbong Marcos’ Promise to Matt for the Election 2019

Election 2019
By: Elena Grace Flores

Bongbong Marcos assures his nephew, Matthew Marcos Manotoc that there will be chaos in the election 2019 but there’s nothing to worry about. The whole family will be there beside him every step of the way. Manotoc is set to run as the next governor of Ilocos Norte. His mother, who vacated the position runs for Senator.

[VIDEO]: Happy Birthday Matt! You cannot know how proud you have made us all. Onward and upward mattie!

Lots of Teasing

Manotoc wants to be known as the sporty government official who loves to eat. He in fact refers to himself as Mr. Gluttony as his brother, Borgy calls him “matakaw.” He surely knows how to laugh at his weaknesses which is a very positive trait.

Dressing Up for the Occasion

The former Senator expresses his admiration to the young Board Member who has shown impressive moves in the past months or weeks. One major decision was to run for governor replacing his grandmother, Cong. Imelda Marcos who is already 89 years old. He is only 30 years old.

Healthy Advocacy

Senior Board Member Manotoc led the inaugural ceremonies of the new three-generational (3G) playgrounds and fitness parks recently. This is in the towns of Solsona, Sarrat, Vintar, Nueva Era, Banna, Marcos, Bangui, Burgos and Currimao. These projects are in line with his advocacy for more Ilocanos to adopt healthy and active lifestyles regardless of age.

Any Chance for Fariñas?

The young governor bet for Ilocos Norte runs head on against the greatest critic of his mother, Rep. Rudy Fariñas. The outcome of Imee Marcos’ ordeal brought about by the latter during the detention of the Ilocos 6 shows that Marcos has the power over him not just in their hometown but also in the branches of government. This puts Fariñas into a bad light.

Election 2019 Promise

Bongbong Marcos is another foundation of Manotoc aside from his mother. He swears to give is utmost support to his nephew without failing to warn him that it’s not going to be easy. However, they both have the mechanism and influence to put on the line for him to become the next governor of Ilocos Norte replacing ex-Gov. Marcos.

Election 2019 Substitution: Imee Marcos’ Son Matthew Runs for Governor Opposite Rudy Fariñas

election 2019


By: Elena Grace Flores

Imelda Marcos’ grandson, Ilocos Norte 2nd District Senior Board Member Matthew Marcos Manotoc, will run for governor instead of her. Manotoc, the son of Ilocos Norte Governor and bet for Senator, Imee Marcos, originally filed his candidacy for vice governor. This makes the previous politicizing in the Congress launched by Rep. Rodolfo “Rudy” Fariñas against his mother clearer than ever. The Ilocos 6 suffered a great deal just for Fariñas to get an edge over Manotoc-Marcos for the election 2019. How could Ilocos Norte forget?

Substituting Imelda Marcos

Matthew Marcos Manotoc, incumbent Senior Provincial Board Member, will run for Governor of Ilocos Norte. Previously, he had filed his certificate of candidacy (COC) for Vice Governor of the province but decided to finally substitute his grandmother, 2nd District Rep. Imelda R. Marcos, in the 2019 gubernatorial race.


Opposing the No. 1 Detractor

Manotoc will be running against Ilocos Norte 1st District Representative Rodolfo “Rudy”  Fariñas, who substituted for former Barangay Bengcag, Laoag City Jesus Arimbuyotan as the gubernatorial bet recently. Fariñas strategy seems to boomerang to him. He is now opposed by the more younger and charming Marcos. Manotoc’s mother, Imee’s ordeal in the Congress definitely failed. Imelda Marcos is also smart enough to pretend that she is really running despite her old age.


Ferdinand Marcos’ Kin Runs for Vice Governor

Board Member Mariano “Nonong” Marcos has substituted Manotoc for the vice gubernatorial race as well. Nonong Marcos is the son of Pacifico, the younger brother of Imelda’s husband and former President, the late Ferdinand Marcos whose works still exist at the present time in service to the Filipino people.



Politics in the Congress

The House of Representatives allowed majority leader Rodolfo Fariñas and House accountability committee chairman Johnny Pimentel to harass Gov. Imee Marcos. It detained six officials of the Ilocos Norte provincial government on the strength of what it construes as “contempt of the House” or “obstruction of justice”. The six detained officials, who are known as “Ilocos 6,” are Pedro Agcaoili, chairman of the planning and development office; Josephine Calajate, provincial treasurer; Eden Battulayan, Encarnacion Gaor and Genedine Jambaro, staff at the treasurer’s office; and Evangeline Tabulog, provincial budget officer.

The North Remembers in the Election 2019

It is a sure win for Manotoc, a champion amateur golfer like his dad, Tommy Manotoc is a viral comment over social media. Given the stunts of Fariñas, it is likely that most Ilocos Norte voters would go for a Marcos whose family is known to prioritize their people than their position. Surely, Imee Marcos is right that the North indeed remembers.

Is Matthew Marcos Manotoc Taking Over Mom’s Role as Governor?

governor





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Ilocos Norte Governor Imee Marcos of the Nacionalista Party and Vice Governor Eugenio Angelo Marcos Barba had no opposition when they sought their reelection bids in 2016. Cousins, Marcos and Barba are on their third straight term. When Marcos runs for Senator in 2019, Barba may run for the next higher position. However, he can also vie for a national post. Therefore, leaving the governor slot vacant as far as the Marcoses are concerned. Could the governor’s son, Matthew Marcos Manotoc be the next contender?

The Promising Senior Board Member

Senior Board Member Matthew Marcos Manotoc leads the Capitol Express last June 21, 2018, in Bacarra, Ilocos Norte.  He then urges the crowd to continue their support for the 2019 election on behalf of his mother at the Auditorium of Dingras. Does this mean that he is taking over the role of his mother as Governor of Ilocos Norte?




Possible Bet for the National Election

Vice Governor Angelo Barba is the son of Fortuna Marcos, youngest sister of former President Ferdinand Marcos. Since he’s already in his final term in the current position, he can only move up to the next ladder or seek for a national post as a Congressman. Former First Lady Imelda Marcos is the District Representative of Ilocos Norte’s 2nd District in the House of Representatives.




Still Going Strong at 90

Congresswoman Marcos was born on July 2, 1929. That makes her 90 years old on July 2, 2018. Governor Marcos earlier said that since it’s her mother who is the real politician among them, she’s responsible for convincing the members of the younger generation to follow in their footsteps.









Relevant Duty

The Marcos name in politics can never die especially now that the status of the Marcos gold starts to become clearer. Although it is noted that most people are reactive to the candidacy of the late Ferdinand Marcos’ children and grandchildren than to their cousins. It does not matter what position Board Member Manotoc decides on. Governor or other posts can be his stepping stone for a more relevant duty in the near future.
