Mayor Sara Duterte, VP Robredo among possible presidential candidates: OCTA
Other than Bongbong Marcos for the Election of 2022
Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio and VP Leni Robredo are among the named presidentiables for the election of 2022. Manny Pacquiao and Mayor Isko Moreno have their own publicity stunts. Senators Bong Go and Tito Sotto are also active in their own jurisdictions. However, the Marcos loyalists noticed that Bongbong Marcos is the quietest. They even urged him to continue questioning the unfavorable outcome of his electoral protest with a bit of toughness.
Inheriting Major Headaches
Analysts said that the next president would inherit the major headaches brought about by the pandemic. His or her character can be judged by how he or she answers strategic questions on how to solve the current crisis. Nonetheless, Robredo continues to attack the president, and the presidential daughter, Mayor Sara can only retaliate by commenting on her fake courage.
Bongbong Marcos is Still
Character-wise, Bongbong Marcos remained still amidst the big blow on his election protest. He only presents fraud evidence during the 2016 elections at the bar of public opinion. This is after those proofs were not shown to the magistrates before the en banc. He blamed former President Noynoy Aquino’s ally, Associate Marvic Leonen who is the ponente of his case for blocking them. His moves may be invisible right now but one thing is certain. The President’s allies are definitely doing something to protect his interest. He clearly chooses his battles.
