Like a real statesman, Bongbong Marcos supports the President on building closer ties with ASEAN member nations and China. On the other hand, sister Gov. Imee plans for the elderly and wishes to continue the pension welfare for the senior public servants. These happen as the country gears up for the 2019 election. It is observed however that the political tide has now switched in favor of the Marcoses in the most branches of the government.

Gov. Imee Marcos’ Senate Bid Political Platform for the 2019 Election

Gov. Imee Marcos said she wishes to continue the momentum of the Du30 administration’s ‘Build, Build, Build’ infrastructure program. The transportation and the improvement of telecommunication facilities in the country are some of the priorities. Secondly, she wishes to improve the prices of commodities. This is to soften the impact of the tax reform law on consumers and the global gasoline crises. Finally, Marcos plans to create jobs for women living in remote areas as well as provide a  livelihood to elderly Filipinos who could still work. She also stresses to sustainably provide pensions to senior government retirees. These serve as her political platform for the upcoming election in 2019.

People’s Welfare

The DND Public Information Office confirms that President Ferdinand E. Marcos is a Usaffe veteran.” Usaffe is short for US Armed Forces in the Far East, which was active from 1941 to 1946 and headed by Gen. Douglas MacArthur. The previous administration even honored a list of veterans with Marcos’ name on it. The late President’s love for the country drove him to provide benefits for public servants through GSIS. As a war veteran, his widow, the former first lady and now Congresswoman Imelda R. Marcos, receives old age pension from the Philippine Veterans Affairs Office despite the denial of his opponents.


On the other hand, Bongbong Marcos explains the good in fostering an alliance with the ASEAN countries. The international agreements must not be sidelined because of a change of administration. As for President Rodrigo Du30’s perceived close ties with China, Marcos said it is good to see that the Philippines now has a better line of communication with the Asian superpower.

SONA Understanding

On his State of the Nation Address (SONA) several days ago, the President mentioned maintaining an independent foreign policy. Marcos thinks that it’s about being a little less dependent on the United States. Marcos reiterates that the Philippines could benefit greatly from welcoming foreign investors interested in improving infrastructure, agriculture, large-scale engineering, and power development. However, this does not mean that the country will abandon its territorial claims, particularly against China.

All for the Welfare of the Country and People

The great leaders’ ultimate achievement always boils down to providing for the welfare of the country and its people. The Marcoses have already mastered the art of sustaining the projects they initiated to last even after death – as per the case of the Marcos patriarch on the GSIS policies. This is the reason why they are the best top officials that can lead the country to greatness again.
