Imee Marcos on SWS senatorial survey: I have a long way to go
MANILA, Philippines — While senatorial aspirant Imee Marcos welcomed her ranking in the latest Senate race survey, she said she still “has a long way to go.”
“Well, maraming salamat po sa pagkilala, nine years ako nasa Ilocos naaalala pa rin pala, pero marami pa ring trabaho, kailangan pa ring magikot,” she said media forum on Sunday.
(Well, thank you for the recognition, I’ve been with Ilocos for nine years now and they still remember me, but there’s still a lot of work to do, I still need to go around.)
Marcos is the incumbent governor of Ilocos Norte.
“I think I have a long way to go, I still…Kung mapapansin po ninyo, ‘yung number 7 to 15, dikit-dikit po kami kaya marami pang trabaho. Medyo, nine years kasi akong nasa probinsya, nag-aaral pa rin ako at nakikinig,” she said.
(If you can see, the ones taking the number 7 to 15 spots in the survey, we’re neck and neck in the race, so we still have work to do. Even though I’ve been with the province for nine years, I’m still learning and listening.)
In the latest senatorial survey released by the Social Weather Stations (SWS), Marcos entered the “Magic 12” at 11th place with 27 percent voter preference. /je
