MANILA, Philippines — Back in Malacañang for the oath-taking of senator-elect Imee Marcos and her son Ilocos Norte governor-elect Matthew Joseph Manotoc, the Marcos family took the opportunity to pose with the portrait of former president Ferdinand Marcos.

The Marcos family was in Malacañang on Tuesday to witness the oath-taking of the elected candidates endorsed by the Hugpong ng Pagbabago (HNP) in the midterm polls before President Rodrigo Duterte.
