Family Perception on Politics
Simon said that he’s glad that his parents let them be as they want. He may be reluctant to enter politics but he is game in all media exposures. At the age of 21, he already knew that there’s simply no other place around the world that offers the best Peking duck but Beijing. Simon just couldn’t get enough of Beijing’s most popular local specialty. Despite distractions like this, he knew in his heart that they belong to politics ever since the start of his existence awareness.
Social Media Bashers
Joseph Simon first went to study in England in 2006. “He was sent to a boarding school when he was 11 years because his elder brother Sandro was already studying there. His younger brother, Vincent. also entered at the age of 11.” Simon then went back to London for his Oxford Brookes schooling. He takes up Business Management Economics. Bongbong Marcos himself went to Oxford where he took up Political Science, Philosophy and Economics from 1975 to 1978. His degree issue has always been revived over the internet. However, social media gives him the edge over the opposition because of their genuine public service efforts.
Tried to be Disciplinarian
Except for his surname, Simon is a regular guy. “He likes playing football. He takes guitar lessons during his free time. He also likes jamming with friends when he’s in Manila,” the father said. The middle son also reveals that his father is trying to be a disciplinarian. He ends up giving in to their choices.
No Baby Talks
The public is now questioning if the three siblings are going to enter the world of politics in which their father desired to do or not. They are given the choice to decide their own path in which they want to succeed in. In fact, Louise Araneta Marcos(mother) prefer her child to be not active in politics and away from the public eye. However, a Marcos is a Marcos and would always do what they are geared for. As for Simon, many people await his plans in the near future.
Sandro Marcos who is the darling of the Filipino millennials is actually already working in London. The Father’s Day video of the Marcos brothers dedicated to their father Bongbong Marcos revealed his status. The people must take this as his preparation for a more fruitful political career in the near future. Meanwhile, Simon and Vinny did not fall short of expectations.

Spotted in London’s Independence Day Event
Sandro Marcos attends the Independence Day celebration in London hosted by the Philippine Embassy. The picture shows him with Philippine Ambassador to the UK, Ambassador Lagdameo, and actress, Dawn Zulueta.
Sandro always speaks highly of his dad. Perseverance, when things are not going your way, is one of the learnings he gets from their patriarch. His decision to study and work in London is based on the principle of working smart. It’s because working hard in a foreign land is a smart thing to do. This is to gain wisdom in improving the country based on his experiences in the first world country.
The Smartest and Kindest Family
Vinny is grateful for his family. They are the smartest and kindest people he knew. Politics for them is just an outlet to reach out to the society. Their intention is only to help out and not to gain anything from the people they served.
The Marcos Thing
Simon manages to take over the video limelight from his father for the Vlog. He explains how his father teaches him how to pull-over a recording like their regular online videos in series. He talks about learning how to make other people’s lives better as the ultimate goal of their family. It was him who spills the beans about Sandro in the introductory part.
Bongbong Marcos reveals that his son, Sandro Marcos plans to work abroad. He does not want to build his career where his name means something. Does this imply that he’s not running at all for the upcoming election? Earlier, his aunt, Gov. Imee Marcos who’s running for Senator wishes that her mother can convince the younger Marcoses especially Sandro to join them in politics. He can feasibly get his place in the Congress or even as governor.

Bloggers Supportive of Marcos’ Election Protest
Marcos speaks highly of some very supportive bloggers for his election protest against Vice President Leni Robredo. The former Senator only has nice words for them. He thinks that ASec Mocha Uson is popular while RJ Nieto of Thinking Pinoy and Sass Rogando Sasot of Mother Earth are both smart. Darwin Canete is influential. Mike Lopez is also a lovely person, said Marcos. He pretends not to know about “Pinoy Ako” blog.
Father is Proud of Son’s Achievement
There might be some awkward moments between father and son but Bongbong stresses the fact that Sandro is doing alright. He got his Master’s Degree in Development Studies from the London School of Economics and Political Science.
Where will Sandro go?
As a supportive parent, the Bongbong asks Sandro where he would like to go. Perhaps they could refer him to some of their friends in their field. However, the latter prefers to do it his way. Maybe, to work abroad for a while will help him learn about his real interests.
Many Filipinos can be Heartbroken
The older Marcos believes that real men wear pink. He is grateful to Oxford for teaching him how to think. There are many things to learn more about the future Vice President. BBM Vlog episode 13 is gold in that aspect. However, as for Sandro, he is still in the stage where he wants to explore the world on his own. For sure, many Filipinos can be heartbroken if that is so.
Governor Imee Marcos discloses earlier that she and her mother try to convince Bongbong Marcos’ son to run for public office. Among the three siblings, it is Sandro Marcos who is in the limelight. He is definitely too young to run for Senator with the age requirement of 35. He ‘s only 24. Besides, Gov. Marcos is likely the clan’s candidate for 2019. However, his supporters already launch the Sandro Marcos for Congressman movement.

Chances in the Congress
A Member of the House of Representatives must be a natural-born citizen of the Philippines. On the day of the election, he is at least twenty-five (25) years of age. A registered voter in the district in which he shall be elected, and also resident. Ferdinand Alexander Araneta Marcos III or Sandro’s birthday is on March 7, 1994. That would make him exactly 25 in 2019. Under the Constitution, elections for the members of Congress occur every second Monday of May every third year after May 1992. So, the next ones would be in 2019 and 2022.
Senator to be, Gov. Imee Marcos’ Replacement
The age requirement for governor is only 23. Since Governor Marcos seems to run for Senator, a candidate from the Marcos family is needed. The rest of the younger Marcoses are reluctant to run for such posts. This can be another option for Sandro.
Sandro Marcos has a master’s degree in Development Studies from the London School of Economics and Political Science. He often joins campaign trails, a substitute speaker for his father and grants TV and video interviews for the sake of his patriarch. This gives people a hint that he might soon seek a public position.
Like his father, Sandro believes in unity. His mother is Louise or Liza Araneta. She is a relative of Mar Roxas. The latter is the 2016 LP Presidential candidate in 2016. He said that relationships must not transcend politics. Like any other profession, he is also open to politics.
Just prior to the PET’s assurance to Bongbong Marcos that the recount pushes through on April 2 regardless of the revisor shortage, his two other sons urge the Comelec to bring out the original ballots if the ones presented by their father in a press conference are fake. This coincides with Gov. Imee Marcos’ disclosure that other members of the family may be forced to run for a national post because of such delays in his brother’s Vice Presidential electoral protest. Sandro for one is a favorite Congressman potential this early. Will Vincent and Simon follow suit?

Signaling the Youthful Marcoses
Ilocos Norte Governor Imee Marcos said that the family talks about other members of the family to run for the national elections due to the uncertainties surrounding her brother’s protest against VP Leni Robredo. She for sure is one major bet for the upcoming Senatorial race in 2019. However, due to the dirty game exhibited by their detractors, it helps to have younger bets that would continue to inspire Filipinos. Luckily, all the sons of Bongbong Marcos got the charm that touches hearts.
The PET’s Incompetence
In the interest of transparency, the Marcos Camp informs their supporters, especially those who anticipate the revision or recounting of votes in the election protest of Marcos at the Supreme Court, that the scheduled event is moved from March 19, 2018, to April 2, 2018, with calmness. This is due to the incomplete staffing requirements of the Presidential Election Tribunal (PET). They cannot handle logistics for that matter.
A challenge to the Comelec
Vincent and Simon react to the previous comment of Robredo’s lawyers that their copies are fake. The two brothers take it upon themselves as private citizens to call on the Comelec. This is to reveal the original ballots for comparison with what they have.
Public’s Fascination with the Marcos Siblings
The new delay may be a setback in the proceedings for Marcos. However, this is taken as an opportunity for the other Marcoses to shine. The tireless support of the Marcos loyalists even grows stronger, as the younger Marcoses display their wit and good looks to the public via social media.
