“No one got stuck in the traffic because the event was held early Sunday morning,” she said.

Marcos and Duterte-Carpio are set to hold a grand rally at the South Road Properties in Cebu City on Monday, April 18.

Macatangay said more than 100 policemen will be deployed in the place to ensure a peaceful and orderly event.

Marcos and Duterte-Carpio were endorsed by Cebu City Mayor Michael Rama and Cebu Gov. Gwendolyn Garcia.

In the 2016 vice presidential elections, Marcos lost to Leni Robredo in the vice presidential race in Cebu.
