Oath-taking as Member and Chairman of Partido Federal ng Pilipinas
Bongbong Marcos takes his oath as a member of the Partido Federal ng Pilipinas. He is also now its chairman. PFP is a pro-Duterte party. It seeks alliance with Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio’s. This is through Hugpong ng Pagbabago. However, it is not clear if he runs as its standard-bearer. So, the guessing game continues. The deadline for the Certificate of Candidacy filing is October 8, 2021. Therefore, the excitement begins.
Standard Bearer Nominations
Marcos now has at least 2 standard-bearer nominations. The PFP did it first. Then the KBL which is his father’s original party. He also has a silent endorsement from the Nacionalista Party. Plus the ongoing talks with the PDP-Laban.
The deadline is fast approaching. But Marcos still has no VP if he runs for president. Whereas, Bong Go remains the only bet for the PDP-Laban Cusi faction. He runs for VP. Perhaps they can merge as they run from their respective parties. But speculations say that Go is due for substitution.
