During a press conference on Tuesday, May 31, Pres. Duterte revealed to the media that he was not giving Vice President-elect Leni Robredo a position because it may hurt Sen. Marcos who would have a place in his Cabinet. The incoming president already revealed the members of his elite family in Malacanang but there are departments that are still unoccupied.

Although there is no official statement yet from the camp of Mayor Duterte about the possible position to be given to Sen. Bongbong Marcos, when the mayor was asked he just responded that he and Sen. Marcos were “friends.” Some political analysts also foresee a possible tandem between Duterte and Marcos in promoting the much needed change in the Philippines.

The Duterte and Marcos Tandem was also endorsed during the recently concluded national elections by one of the country’s most influential religious group, the Iglesia Ni Cristo Church whose members could reached up to 1.8 million and they were known in the country as the only bloc-voting religious group.

During a press conference in Davao City the President-elect Rodrigo Duterte said that he has no Cabinet position offer for Sen. Bongbong Marcos. He was quoted as saying “There is no position, and he hasn’t asked for one,” Duterte told reporters in a press conference Tuesday evening (May 31) in Panacan, Davao City.

The possibility of seeing Sen. Bongbong Marcos working for the Duterte administration as a Cabinet member is considered as a dream come true for all the supporters of Marcos. As far as history is concern, the Duterte and Marcos family were known political ally even during the administration of the late Pres. Ferdinand E. Marcos.
