Bongbong Marcos confident of beating Robredo in 2022 election scenario
Former Senator Bongbong Marcos is gunning for a national post next year. He believes he can finally win against Vice President Leni Robredo in another face-off. His camp spent P72 million for the recount in his electoral protest against the sitting VP. But he’s confident he can beat her one-on-one in another face off challenge. Money is not a question.
Another Face Off
He can win over Robredo in the 2022 election, Bongbong Marcos said confidently. Both Marcos and Robredo have yet to finalize their political plans for the upcoming polls. Nonetheless, Marcos already travels around to get his winning numbers. While Robredo continues to criticize the Duterte administration.
Securing the VP Post
Meanwhile, President Rodrigo Duterte accepts the nomination of his party to run for Vice President. He wants continuity of his projects. He can help even if he does not lead, he said. On the other hand, Senator Bong Go already declines to run as President. So, that leaves Bongbong Marcos for President and Duterte for Vice President. A substitution could happen still at the last minute, with perhaps, Mayor Sara Duterte.
Bongbong Marcos’ Presidential Plan
There are many groups that endorse Bongbong Marcos for President. However, this support is not going to happen if he slides down to the VP post. Marcos agrees with them because even surveys say so. He is using the maximum time available to finally announce his presidential bid.
The Filing of Candidacy
Bongbong Marcos only announces the position that he would vie for during the filing of candidacy in October. This way, he can have more time to reflect for a sound decision. Notheless, he is in talks with many possible supporters for the presidency. It looks like, he has the number, he said.
NP or KBL?
Another decision he has to make is to run under his current party which is the NP or Nacionalista Party. He can also revive his late father’s party which is the Kilusang Bagong Lipunan. The scenario boils down to what the NP would do. If he is not the frontrunner for the party then, the other choice is an alternative. This is if he finally decides to run for president in the 2022 elections, Bongbong Marcos added.
Bongbong Marcos: Faith can Ease Broken Hearts
Likely presidential candidate Bongbong Marcos calls on the IATF to open places of worship. Proper protocol is already followed in these areas. The churches are huge. 50% capacity could be safe enough from Covid-19, he said. Filipinos need to practice their faith. Especially in the midsts of the sorrowful experiences during the pandemic. This way, broken hearts are mended, he added. So, very helpful to retain mental health.
Fully Vaccinated Church Servants
It is crucial for the church goers to be fully vaccinated. However, if this is not possible yet, church servants like the priests and altar boys must have full vaccinations first. This would ensure that the spread of Coronavirus in churches is unlikely, Bongbong Marcos explained.
His mother, former First Lady, Imelda Marcos does visits to churches called “Visita Inglesia.” She’s happy enough to do it in the car. But how many more are like her? For as long as they can pray or visit the churches, it’s good enough. This is if masses are not acceptable by the IATF yet. Such is also a component of a healthy lifestyle. The crucial goal is to beat the infection by having a strong immune system. Plus healthy mind and well-being, Bogbong Marcos stated.
Take it from the late senator Miriam Defensor-Santiago
The late senator Miriam Defensor Santiago was certain about the capability of Bongbong Marcos. Her Vice President is an able leader of the country. Just in case she dies, she said. Santiago was Marcos’s presidential running mate in 2016. However, both did not win. Therefore, President Rodrigo Duterte’s plan comes next. This is to have a winning alliance. The goal is to bring Marcos back to the executive office. So, this is possible given the popularity of the president. Marcos also is next to Sara Duterte-Carpio in presidential surveys. Therefore, it’s a possibility that they would run together in tandem.
President Duterte’s Endorsement
President Duterte is very vocal about finding another Marcos to lead the country for progress. He said, he can’t do it. Even if he is given another term. There’s something about the son of the former president Ferdinand Marcos that both Santiago and Duterte knew – wealth?
Distribution of Wealth
The distribution of wealth especially to the most vulnerable is the government’s job, Bongbong Marcos believes. Former first lady Imelda Marcos also confirms that the Marcos Foundation’s wealth is for the people. This does not mean that her son would literally give money to the people. To teach people how to fish is Marcos’s motto. Education is crucial to help ease poverty. To have faith in one’s economy is the key to unlocking a progressive country. So, the internet infrastructure is a necessity to make all these happen, he said. Most of all, he wants the Filipino people to be independent of him.
Can America Put Bongbong Marcos in Prison?
Bongbong Marcos admits that there are rumors that the US will put him in prison if he runs for President. However, there’s no criminal case on his side that can put him on such position. He’s actually not banned to enter the US. It’s just the complication that discourages him to do so. Therefore, his family prefers to do their business in England instead. Like his children’s education.
Not Banned in America
Around 2005 was the last time Bongbong Marcos set foot in America. He said it’s very complicated to get a visa in the US. He has to get permission to enter because of the many cases of his family. But to clarify, he’s not banned to enter the country.
Sandro Marcos as Congressman
His son, Sandro may also run for Congressman in 2022. This is for the first district of Ilocos Norte. The father is very confident to say that he’s very qualified with his Masters Degree in Developmental Economics. Truly, the pro-Marcos Americans would really find it hard to interfere in the local affairs next elections. With Sandro’s charm, most Filipinos would surely defend them in any way they can.
Destined to be President
Bongbong Marcos feels that he has the number in different localities nationwide to win as president. His long-time alliances are still intact. But there are many that want to come on board. Most Filipinos believe that it’s his destiny to lead the country to greatness. Therefore, he made concrete plans.
To continue the vaccination programs is essential to solving the pandemic, said Bongbong Marcos. Improving the medical facilities is also a priority. There should not be a case where hospitals cannot accommodate patients anymore. Let alone overflow with emergency cases. Proper planning must start even without the pandemic. So, the country can be ready for any situation.
Aside from the Build Build Build project, the internet infrastructure is the key to progress during the pandemic or even after. The education sector also needs another strategy to ease the burden of the teachers and students with online learning. Foreign direct investments are not necessary if the private manufacturing industry can play a fair price. However overseas funding is welcome once fixers are under control. That if they cannot stop since it’s always a problem with the money sector. Bongbong Marcos seems like he’s ready to rule.
Bongbong Marcos to Run as President
Bongbong Marcos said that he is ready to run for president if he has the chance to win. Alliances can help a lot, he added. That’s why he’s feeling his way through if he can win. This is by visiting the entities that supported him in the past. Does he have the number?
Duterte for the VP Post
As of this time of writing, it is not yet certain which Duterte is running for Vice President. The president floats the idea himself that he might run as Vice President but it is unlikely. Meanwhile, his daughter is talking with Bongbong Marcos regarding campaign strategies. So, just guess.
Bongbong Marcos is second to Mayor Sara Duterte in the surveys for likely President. He is also the talk of the town in many localities. This is because of his sudden appearances in many towns, cities, and provinces. Since the people are so fed up with the pandemic difficulties, they are banking on Marcos to give them a fresh start. His father’s gold reserves for the country are a big help.
Bongbong Marcos Starts to Go Around
It is very seldom that the giant mainstream media would feature the activities of Bongbong Marcos. Thanks to reliable ones and social media. Some footages are now available. People in their locality are normally surprised that Marcos is a guest speaker of their local event. This is very evident in Cebu City with acting Vice Mayor Mike Rama and elsewhere. He’s very likely a presidential bet.
Leaving his Options Open
Bongbong Marcos is doing the advice of his late father. This is to leave his options open during elections. He will just decide on the position on what he would run for during the filing of candidacy. This is already in October. The last day of registration for voters is on September 30. Robinson’s Department stores would also serve as satellite registration centers.
The Marcos-Duterte Tandem
President Rodrigo Duterte assures the public during that SONA that he would continue the Build Build Build projects with Bongbong Marcos. He may joke about running for VP but in actuality, he is probably securing the position for his daughter, Mayor Sara. So, watch out for him or both in your locality.
Bongbong Marcos explains the Paranaque Spillway Plan
In the 1970 series of typhoons, the late President Ferdinand Marcos installs systems to prevent a recurrence of the devastating floods. He aims to avoid urban sprawl and builds a system of sluice gates and spillways. This is to quickly divert floodwaters from the city. Therefore, the country needs Bongbong Marcos to realize the visions of his father for the Filipinos.
Urban planner, Felino Palafox helps design the flood-control projects and policies in the 1970s for President Marcos. It would largely prevent the devastation of a Typhoon Ondoy-like calamity. It struck Manila on Sept. 26, 2009. The ill-effects last for months in the form of disease and mass dislocation of Manila’s unfortunate ones. So, Bongbong Marcos vows to continue and improve such initiatives.
Imelda Marcos’ Batasan Project
On the other hand, Bongbong Marcos also added his mother’s Batasan Project. The aim is to have a center for government services. The location is safe from floods. The site is also at the center of Quezon City. Thus, making it accessible to government employees and the public alike. A visionary leader is therefore what the Philippines need.
Where are Bongbong Marcos’ Votes in 2016?
It was a big thing in social media when Bongbong Marcos lost to Robredo with a very slim margin. Many asked where their votes were. INC voters in particular made an official inquiry. This was in the areas of Basilan, Magindanao and Lanao del Sur.
Comelec Confers Cheating in Mindanao
The late Sixto Brilliantes testifies that Comelec itself confers that the voters in the said precincts in Mindanao were fake. 80% of the signatures did not match in the ARMM region. Massive substituted voting per se. The Comelec and the NBI did the technical examination. This was necessary during the local protest of former Sulu governor Abdusakur Tan vs. ARMM Gov. Mujiv Hataman.
Bongbong Marcos’ Call for 2022 Elections
The Comelec finding in Mindanao can greatly affect the results of the Bongbong Marcos’ 2016 Vice Presidential protest. Robredo’s margin of 266,000 votes can easily vanish. This is if its annulment pushes through. However, the PET decides otherwise. Marcos’ 3rd course of action was set aside. All evidence of fraud is only kept out of the limelight. A very painful experience for Marcos. Therefore, he urges people to show their real sentiments in the next election.
