Rehabilitation Efforts by Mayor Sara and Senator Marcos
Typhoon Rolly’s rehabilitation efforts of Mayor Sara and Senator Imee Marcos are not anymore surprising. These two public servants often make public appearances since the 2016 election campaign. This should give a strong hint to the opposition as to who’s running for the executive office’s top positions in 2022. Inday Sara already rejects the idea of her running for the presidency. Despite topping the recent Pulse Asia survey. Then, she jokes about doing it for the VP post. So, with Senator Marcos as a constant companion, Bongbong Marcos is just around the corner.
The Duterte Popularity
The President’s approval rating remains at 91%. If the election is done today, the presidential daughter could replace him easily. Analysts say that popularity is not transferable. It’s the character that could make a candidate hot enough to win. From the start, Senator Marcos and Inday Sara are already buddies. This does not happen as a coincidence but a mere strategy for the alliance.
Bongbong Marcos is Definitely Running
The recent survey also shows that Bongbong Marcos is not far behind Mayor Sara. His persona displays an aura that is ready to be a leader at any time. Therefore, it’s more likely that the Duterte-Marcos tandem is in the loop. The namesake of Ferdinand Marcos can certainly make use of his life experience for the country’s rehabilitation.
