The Marcos loyalists movement in Dapitan like any chapters nationwide aims to help local officials for the progress of the nation. All these initiatives are moving forward together with Inday’s Sara’s Hugpong political party, This is vital for the mid-term election in 2019 for a better and safer Philippines with more opportunities for an improved lifestyle, said Bongbong Marcos. Meanwhile, the PET denies Marcos’ motion asking for Supreme Court Associate Justice Alfredo Benjamin Caguioa’s inhibition from the case for utter lack of merit. It justifies by saying that being a Pnoy appointee does not make him bias. This is actually fair enough for as long as any future rulings in favor of Marcos won’t be blamed to the new SC Chief Justice Teresita de Castro.

[VIDEO]: It’s always humbling to meet the people who were there for us during our toughest battles. It’s even more humbling to learn that they’re still there for us. Thank you for this humbling surprise, Marcos Loyalist Movement — Dapitan chapter!
Bongbong Marcos was filled with joy when he was invited to an induction ceremony of the Marcos Loyalist Movement. Moreover, it is the first batch of officers who are being inducted. To quote Marcos, “I was honored to join the Marcos Loyalist Movement during the induction of their inaugural batch of officers in Dapitan City, Zamboanga Del Norte,”. He also adds, “Knowing there’s a family I can count on inspires me to continue my fight for truth and genuine public service. Thank you very much for the trust!”.
Du30 – Marcos Alliance for the Mid-term Election
For the 2019 Mid-term elections, Sara Duterte is endorsing Sen, Cynthia Villar, Gov. Imee Marcos and Rep. Zajid Mangudadatu. They are among those who are also endorsed by her regional party, Hugpong ng Pagbabago. Imee Marcos believes that the Hugpong ng Pagbabago will be the voice of Mindanao. On Monday, she had formally formed an alliance with the HnP. She compares the HnP to the Solid North, the regional alliance of the Marcos Family. Like the Solid North, HnP’s approach is very local, unlike that of a traditional party.
The PET’s Neutrality
In a 14-page resolution dated Aug. 28, the SC, sitting as the Presidential Electoral Tribunal (PET), denied Marcos’ motion asking for Caguioa’s inhibition from the case for utter lack of merit. “The foregoing shows that Justice Caguioa’s conduct of the matters in this protest has been nothing but impartial. Further, it bears reiterating that all decisions of the Tribunal have been arrived at through majority vote of all the members of the Court sitting en banc. As provided under Rule 66 of the 2010 PET Rule,” the PET said.
En Banc Process of the Election Tribunal
Marcos earlier accused Caguioa of “evident bias and manifest partiality” in favor of Robredo. In his extremely urgent motion to inhibit, Marcos accused Caguioa of bias towards the “yellow brigade” as he took note that the magistrate has close ties with former President Benigno Aquino III. The PET, however, rejected the motion and sternly warned” Marcos and his lawyers that “any unfounded and inappropriate accusation made in the future will be dealt with more severely.” It said that Caguioa “has been nothing but impartial” in his conduct of matters involved in Marcos’ protest against Robredo, and explained that all decisions have been reached through a majority vote of the Court en banc.
Constitutional Transition towards the New Golden Age
The current action of the PET is part of the constitutional process. This is necessary to assure the public that the decisions they make are from the en banc. Not just from a single magistrate. Since the alliance between President Du30 and Bongbong Marcos is already proven to be formidable, the Filipinos are certain that a favorable ruling on Marcos’ protest against Robredo can happen soon. It only takes time because of the constitutional processes necessary. With the emerging alliance between Imee Marcos and Sara Du30-Carpio for the upcoming election, there’s no stopping to moving forward towards the new golden age phenomenon. This growing alliance is the cause of optimism to some, and bouts of sleepless nights to others.
