The international headline of Reuters is indeed very catchy especially to the detractors of the late President Ferdinand E. Marcos. Alarms are raised like Marcos is coming back from the dead to get back to those who accused him of crimes he did not commit. It is actually referring to the son who has the same name, Ferdinand Marcos, Jr. He is better known as Bongbong Marcos.

[VIDEO]: LENI ROBREDO BUONG LAKAS NA IPAPABASURA ANG PROTESTA NI BONGBONG MARCOS SA VOTE RECOUNT
Robbed of Victory
Bongbong Marcos is keen to do the necessary steps towards securing a recount of votes in the Vice Presidential election last year in which he says he was unfairly robbed of victory. This is despite the high cost of the recount.
Robredo’s relationship with the Philippine President is far from close and he frequently jokes about her in public. Du30’s father, who is a former Mindanao province governor, served under the Marcos regime when he was first elected president in 1965. He himself speaks highly of the younger Marcos and is very fond od his sister, Imee Marcos. There was a time in China that Du30 introduces Marcos as the new Vice President if he wins the electoral protest against Leni Robredo.
Recount is Near
Five days before June 21, both Marcos and Robredo camps must submit their manifestations for the preliminary conference as scheduled. The Protestant must submit three priority areas for the initial recount. This would determine if there’s a basis to continue it to the fullest. Most Filipinos are confident that this time, the real winner for the VP post will soon be revealed.
