Sandro Marcos Now Ready To Join the Political Arena
SANDRO MARCOS – The son of former Senator Bongbong Marcos will run as congressman of the 1st District of Ilocos Norte.
One of the most popular surnames in the Philippine political arena is the “Marcos”. From 1965 to 1986, the country was under the leadership of the late former President Ferdinand Marcos Sr. However, his presidency was surrounded by issues and accusations.
The presidential term of Marcos ended by being ousted by the people and fleeing to Hawaii. For several years after his death, his body was preserved as many Filipinos don’t agree to bury him in the Heroes’ Cemetery. The said much-awaited event by his family took place in November 2016.
Even in 2016, many Filipinos still disapprove burying the former President in the Heroes’ Cemetery in Taguig. It came as a surprise to a lot of people.
Currently, several members of the family of the late former President are in the political field. His only son, Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr., is a former Senator. He ran for vice president in 2016 and claimed that he was cheated. However, the verdict on his election protest did not favor the former Senator.
For the upcoming Election 2022, former Sen. Bongbong Marcos’ eldest son, Sandro Marcos, will vie as the congressman of the 1st District of Ilocos Norte. Based on a report on ABS-CBN News, the 27-year-old aspiring public servant made the announcement during a program in Sarrat Town, Ilocos Norte.
Sandro Marcos earned his bachelor and master degrees in London. He is currently the economic consultant of the Ilocos Norte government and the political affairs officer of his uncle, House Majority Leader Leyte 1st District Rep. Martin Romualdez.
According to Sandro, he was asked to run for a public office before but he was not ready then. Now, the 27-year-old grandson of former President Marcos wants to continue what his family has started and is ready to challenge Congresswoman Ria Fariñas.
