Imee Marcos and Sara Du30’s Alliance Secures the Marcos-Du30 Tandem in 2019 or 2022


By: Elena Grace Flores

It was in the news that Mayor Sara Du30 was at the wedding of Atty. Michael Manotoc, Gov. Imee Marcos’s son with Cara Manglapus. However, it seems like the alliance did not stop there. There are seen in various occasions and have fought their own fights adjacent to each other. The governor is a staunch supporter of Inday Sara’s political party that Congressman Pantaleon Alvarez is not happy with. Gov. Marcos also had a separate issue with Majority Floor Leader  Rodolfo Fariñas. They are prominent proofs that the President is not anti-women. In fact, they are the foundation of the Marcos-Du30 executive tandem for 2019 transitory government election or the 2022 national elections. Take note that both are daughters of the country’s popular Presidents.

The Imee Marcos-Sara Du30 alliance creates a strong north-south partnership that cultivates the already well-grounded constituency. These are composed of the millions of Du30-Marcos voters and supporters. Mayor Du30 appears to be at odds with the two leaders of the House of Representatives. It is also not a secret that Gov. Marcos had a spat with Majority Leader Rudy Fariñas. The Presidential daughter also had a conflict with Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez.

Empowered Female Politicians

Anti-Du30 women campaigners, who are also anti-Marcos, have painted an inclusive discourse of standing up for women. However. Imee Marcos-Sara Du30’s alliance can only force them to give the benefit of a doubt to the men they hate and demonize. This is where those groups can be tested if they are indeed pro-women. Another possibility is that – they are merely partisan feminist. It is not basically the gender of Imee and Sara that matters to them but their fathers’.

The Promise

In the end, an Imee Marcos-Sara Du30 alliance is an exciting political development. It can happen as early as 2019 if the transitory election during the Federalism shift can pass through the Congress. If not, the alliance may just plant the seed of a Marcos-Du30 tandem in 2022. If it does develop into such a thing, and regardless of who ends up on top of the ticket, this will certainly be a great challenge to any parties that are ambitious enough to block their quest. Needless to say, it is evident that Gov. Marcos is the groups’ senator bet whereas Bongbong Marcos is for President and Mayor Du30 is his running mate as VP.

Fariñas’ Bitterness on Imee Marcos Shows when he Questioned P66.45M Cash Advance


welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Imee Marcos’ lawyer, Joseph Cadiz slams the allegations of House Majority Leader Rodolfo Fariñas who allegedly uncovered cash advance checks amounting to P66,450,000 in tobacco funds as premature politicking.

[VIDEO]: Majority Leader Rodolfo Fariñas and two of his deputies initiate a House probe into P66.45 million worth of allegedly misused tobacco funds in Ilocos Norte.

Cash Advance Checks

The tobacco funds questioned were used by the Ilocos Norte provincial government to buy the following motor vehicles, said Fariñas:

  • P18,600,000 on December 1, 2011 for 40 barangay mini-cabs
  • P15,300,000 on May 25, 2012, for 5 secondhand buses
  • P32,550,000 on September 12, 2012, for 70 Municipality Foton mini trucks

Barangay Complaints

Fariñas, incumbent Ilocos Norte 1st District representative, and former governor said barangay captains in his district were complaining they were given mini-cabs that did not have documents.  They could not use their budget in the barangay for fuel because these vehicles are not booked or documented as owned by the barangays


Fariñas seems to put all the blame on the governor, Imee Marcos. This is just because she signed the requests and approved the checks which are the protocol.  Since 1998, the Fariñas and Marcos families political relationship is on and off in Ilocos Norte after the late president Ferdinand Marcos died in 1989.

Finally Cut

In 2015, the Marcoses finally cut ties with Fariñas. They dropped him from their “One-Ilocos Norte” line-up which could cause the bitterness he felt. The situation can easily be handled properly if his intention is to ease the burden of the barangay captains. A discrete dialogue with the governor can certainly help. Since he opted to announce this to the media as immediate accusations, then he has his own political motive.
