Ilocos Norte Governor Imee Marcos seems to be touring these days. That gives a hint to the press people that she is indeed preparing for the Senatorial race in 2019. She does not dispute that either. It is likely that she will run under the President’s umbrella because of the obvious alliance between them. The latest indication is the recent press conference where she and Presidential spokesperson Atty. Harry Roque answers questions about the current national issues. The Marcoses and the Filipino leader’s popularity remain despite the black media propaganda against them.

Roque Defended the President
Sensitive issues like the Dengvaxia case that hunts the previous administration are thrown at the Presidential spokesperson Roque. He constantly denies ill intention against ex-President Noynoy Aquino. The President is not into jailing previous presidents that came before him. It’s not just his style, Roque added.
Comelec’s Move against ex-Pnoy
The Commission on Elections’ (Comelec) Law Department summons former President Benigno Aquino III and two of his former cabinet members over a complaint of election law violation. This has links to the controversial dengue vaccination program. Aquino, former Budget Secretary Florencio Abad, and former Health Secretary Janet Garin have to appear at a preliminary hearing on March 15. The three face a complaint filed by the Volunteers Against Crime and Corruption for the implementation of the immunization program on April 4, 2016. This falls within the 45-day election ban on government projects ahead of the May 2016 elections.
Own Supporters Put ex-Pnoy into Trouble
Roque explains the President’s stand on the Comelec’s complaint against ex-Pnoy and others. What can Du30 do if it is ex-Pnoy’s own supporters who can see such problem in the Dengvaxia case? He has to allow the rule of law to run smoothly and fairly, he said.
The Popularity of the Marcoses Never Dies
Mayor Mauricio Domogan tags the appearance of the Marcos siblings during the weekend Panagbenga parades as unfortunate after critics loomed over social media. It turns out that Bongbong and Gov. Imee Marcos were not formally invited. They asked permission to participate even if they do not have to since all Filipinos can join any festivals. However, they were allowed to join with officials of the city and the Baguio Flower Festival Foundation Incorporated. They also engaged the crowd on the parade route. They spoke to the crowd at the Athletic Bowl. Imee introduces Bongbong as the vice president of the Philippines. Perhaps the mayor did not expect that the popular siblings can overpower the crowd.
