Bongbong wants to be president
Posted by akosistella on May 22, 2010
His name used to be poison in the Philippines but Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. is now talking about becoming president after elections on May 10 showed him to be one of the nation’s most popular politicians.
The only son of strongman President Ferdinand Marcos insists that his family has nothing to apologize for regarding his father and namesake’s 20-year rule of the country that ended in 1986 with a “people power” uprising and a humiliating escape into exile.
“My father doesn’t need me to vindicate him,” a relaxed Bongbong told Agence France-Presse on Wednesday in his first major interview since last week’s national elections that saw him secure more than 13 million votes and a seat in the Senate.
