Imee says next Marcos in national position could be her

/ 05:25 AM February 26, 2018

BAGUIO CITY — There should be another Marcos in national office.

The eldest daughter of the late dictator Ferdinand Marcos said here that the uncertainty surrounding the electoral case filed by her brother, Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr., to wrest the vice presidency from Leni Robredo was making the Marcos family ponder about sending another Marcos to run for national office.

“The electoral protest filed by Bongbong has not advanced so one of his other siblings may be forced to seek national office, like me,” said Imee Marcos, governor of the Marcos bailiwick, Ilocos Norte province.

“That’s what the family is contemplating,” Imee said on Saturday during the Panagbenga or Baguio Flower Festival and also the eve of the day the 1986 People Power Revolution, which forced her family into exile.

The Marcoses returned in 1989, just three years after going into exile and went back soon to politics, winning elections for local positions. It was only Bongbong who won an election for a national post as senator.

Imee and Bongbong spoke at a program in Burnham Park. Imee said credit should go to her father for Baguio landmarks like the Marcos Highway, Baguio Convention Center and Baguio Botanical Garden. —Karlston Lapniten
