MANILA, Philippines — Presumptive president Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. will attend the proclamation once his win becomes official, his chief-of-staff Atty. Vic Rodriguez said Tuesday.

Rodriguez made the remark as Congress, which sits as the National Board of Canvassers, commenced its canvassing of votes for the presidential and vice presidential elections.

“Absolutely, he will attend,” Rodriguez said in a press briefing when asked about Marcos Jr.’s attendance in the proclamation of the next president and vice president of the country.

The partial and unofficial count by the Commission on Elections showed Marcos Jr. leading the presidential race with over 31 million votes while Vice President Leni Robredo garnered 14.81 million votes.

According to Rodriguez, Marcos Jr. is still interviewing potential nominees that will form part of his Cabinet.

“Our focus actually for today is the canvassing and we have reserve today, tomorrow and possibly until Thursday for the canvassing,” Rodriguez said.

“Maybe by Friday, we might come up with some name or names as to his potential nominee that will form part and join him in his governance,” he added.

Meanwhile, Atty. Maria Bernadette Sardillo, counsel of presumptive Vice President Inday Sara Duterte-Carpio, said that they are now coordinating the possible schedule of the proclamation.
