Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. will be running for another national position in the 2022 elections, his spokesperson Vic Rodriguez announced.
“Definitely, Sen. Bongbong Marcos will be seeking a national position come 2022,” Rodriguez said in an interview.
Marcos was defeated by Vice President Leni Robredo in 2016, and was repeatedly defeated after he petitioned to declare failure of elections in the provinces of Lanao del Sur, Basilan and Maguindanao.
A resolution by the Supreme Court, sitting as the Presidential Electoral Tribunal, however confirmed Robredo’s lead over Marcos increased by 15,000 votes after it conducted a recount in the 3 provinces.
Robredo’s camp has refuted all allegations by the Marcos camp, calling it a “desperate attempt” to save a “dying” election protest and will, in effect, create new pilot provinces.
