MANILA, Philippines — The camp of Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. has brushed aside as they feel that their candidate is not the one being alluded to the allegation of President Rodrigo Duterte that an aspirant in the May 2022 polls is a cocaine user.

Atty. Victor Rodriguez, chief of staff and spokesperson of Marcos Jr., said they are focused on the upcoming elections and have the highest respect for Duterte.

“We only have the highest respect, paggalang at [pagkilala] kay Duterte,” he added.
