SO what if former first lady of the Philippines Imelda Marcos is urging her son, Ferdinand Marcos Jr. a.k.a. Bongbong, to run for higher office?
Since Bongbong served Ilocos as its governor from 1998 to 2007, there was not a time he was ill spoken of so it just goes to show he served his father’s province well. He had practically turned the humble province into a tourist destination the entire country must be proud of this deed. I guess it was his goal to pursue the late Pres. Marcos’ ideals. According to my in-laws in Isabela, their province could’ve been the seat of Philippine Disneyland which was was one of the late Marcos’ many plans when he was still in power.
Rumor mill has it that Bongbong is running in the senatorial race next year though the latter hasn’t affirmed nor denied anything. Personally, I would love to see him run for president. Just because his father was accused of corruption (now, who isn’t corrupt in the government?), human rights violations, and tons of other allegations, it doesn’t mean Bongbong should stop pursuing what is ideal for the country. Besides, he is one leader who barely talks but gets a lot of work done.
So, why not Bongbong?
