In Friday’s Pandesal Forum, the senator was asked about her assessment of the first 100 days in office of her brother President Ferdinand Marcos Jr.

“So, siguro, ito na at aminin na natin talagang ‘yung expectations ay talagang nothing short of a miracle. So, I think we will be doing better very quickly,” Imee said.

“But in the meantime, ito nga, harapin natin itong (let us face the) cost of living nightmare that’s really upon us,” she added.

A study released last year showed that the country’s capital city, Manila is now the third most expensive city in Southeast Asia to live in.

Senator Marcos stressed the difficulty that her brother is facing, noting that he has to listen to the 31 million Filipinos who elected him to power.

“Siguro ang masasabi ko na lamang ay talagang nahihirapan ‘pagkat 31 million ang dapat pakinggan.

(Maybe what I can say is there is difficulty because he has to listen to 31 million people.)

“Sa dinami-dami naman ng sumuporta at tumangkilik at nagmahal ay talagang kailangang suriin nang maiigi, pakinggan nang isa-isa at gumawa ng desisyon,” Imee said.
