KBL named Bongbong Marcos as their official candidate for President
Former Senator Bongbong Marcos is being endorsed by the Kilusang Bagong Lipunan (KBL) as the official presidential candidate of the party.
Bongbong, the son of former President Ferdinand Marcos is set to run for the highest position in the Philippine government in the coming 2022 elections. Based on the report from GMA News Online, on Friday, September 24, during the party’s national convention, KBL announced that the former presidential son is their standard-bearer.
In a resolution, it was stated that Marcos was highly nominated for the presidential race next year. Reportedly, this endorsement “was unanimously approved by the officers and members” of KBL, the party that was established by Ferdinand Marcos.
“Resolved, as it is hereby resolved, to approve the nomination and endorsement of the candidacy of Former Senator Ferdinand ‘Bongbong’ Romualdez Marcos, Jr. as the Party’s official candidate for the position of President in the National and Local Elections on May 9, 2022,” the party’s representative stated.
In a recorded speech, Marcos thanked the party for the endorsement but he did not directly say that he is accepting the nomination.
To recall, Bongbong Marcos ran for Vice President in 2016. However, Leni Robredo won the race who was a Representative of Camarines Sur prior to being a Vice President.
Previously, the former Senator has expressed that he will be running for a national position but he did not specify. Just recently, he went viral after his interview on Toni Gonzaga’s Toni Talks on YouTube.
The actress-host received criticisms for allegedly giving Marcos a platform to alter what has transpired in the history of the Philippines. However, Bongbong Marcos defended Toni Gonzaga saying that it is her prerogative to choose whoever she wants to feature on her YouTube channel.
The former Senator also stressed that no one can dictate to him what his memories will be with his father as he was just telling who Ferdinand Marcos was in his perspective as a son.
