Gov. Imee Marcos who runs for Senator joins the ribbon cutting of Consumer’s Welfare Week 2018 at the Makati City Hall. She hails the leadership of Mayor Abby Binay and her Vice Mayor Monique Lagdameo. Marcos explains that there’s not much difference in managing a progressive commercial district compared to being a governor in a small province in terms of public service. However, it is obvious that the city has more funds and her territory only has a larger area. She also jokes about the Yabuts, the good and the bad.

Inflation Treatment

Gov. Marcos prides herself in initiating or bringing back the Kadiwa system that allows direct trade from the producers themselves to the direct consumers. This eliminates the added costs of the agents in between thus lowering the costs of the basic commodities. She wishes to distribute their processed meats to the city hoping that the buyers can also benefit from the affordable prices.


Local Trade

Since her province, Ilocos Norte is a producer of vegetables and other crops, she aims to have trade relations with Makati for these raw products in a major way. Makati is no doubt the commercial district of the Philippines and a model for a successful city, she said. It would be a boost for her products to be directly distributed to this highly developed urban area.


Alliance with the Du30s

It is widely known that Marcos forges an alliance with the Hugpong political party of the President’s daughter, Davao Mayor Sara Du30. She also defends the Filipino leader by saying that there was no such thing as militarization under the Duterte administration. She points out that the military officials appointed in various government positions were no longer in active military service.



Friendship with the Binays

It was also in the news that Gov. Marcos met with Senator Nancy Binay to thank the latter for filing a resolution for the Senate’s electoral fraud investigation during the 2016 elections. The revelations during such hearings put Bongbong Marcos in a good light. Now, she shows support to the incumbent mayor of Makati. This is despite the Binay siblings’ rivalry in the mayoral position in 2019. The situation is not really surprising because of the fact that even the Binay patriarch, former Vice President Jojo Binay is not worried about it. Eventually, one of his children would surely be elected regardless.

Uniting Political Parties as Senator Bet

Earlier, Mayor Abby Binay said during a forum at Malate, Manila, answering questions whether UNA will form an alliance with Mayor Du30’s Hugpong ng Pagbabago (HNP). “Historically if you look at my dad, he is always not aligned particularly with ruling parties,” she added. Nevertheless, as a supporter of Hugpong, Gov. Marcos, can definitely bridge the cooperation of the two parties by simply being friendly and cooperative with both. After all, they are only against the yellow-minded stalwarts.

LP is Welcome for Unity

Binay opens UNA’s doors to all including the Liberal Party. The LP, right now, is under Senator Francis “Kiko” Pangilinan. He and other members of the Liberal Party are vocal in their critiques against the Du30 administration. Nonetheless, this is not limited to the party alone. In fact, the noisiest detractor, Senator Antonio Trillanes is not from the LP. He is from the Nacionalista Party. However, he is noted to have the rebellious behavior of the yellow group.



No Exception

UNA is also opening its doors to the Laban ng Demokratikong Pilipino and the Nationalist People’s Coalition, Binay discloses that with the senators who run for reelection, they are committed to helping each other in their campaigns.

Senatorial Bets

Senators running for reelection this 2019 includes Grace Poe, Bam Aquino, Cynthia Villar, JV Estrada, Koko Pimentel, and Sonny Angara. Ranking in third in the Pulse Asia Survey, Binay is also vowing to work hard in campaigning. She says that there is no room to be complacent.



Bongbong Marcos Ideology

With the protests against former President Ferdinand Marcos’ burial at the Libingan ng mga Bayani, Marcos is calling for unity. He is especially grateful towards President Duterte for recognizing his father’s service to the nation. Furthermore, Duterte also called for forgiveness and for human rights victims to present their cases to court.




UNA Echoes Marcos’ Unity Call

Marcos’ call for unity is universal. Consequently, the Bicolanos warmly accepts this and agrees that unity is what we need for the country to progress.  They believe that if there can be unity, then the country can move forward. UNA’s coalition to all political parties is in line with Marcos’ call. After all, the yellow mentality of the opposition is not confined within the LP camp. Opposing factions also exist in other political parties. Likewise, Marcos needs the support of other parties also for his bid in the executive office. That is why he is thankful to Senator Binay for filing the law that enables the Senate to investigate the 2016 election fraud.
