Bongbong Marcos has not accepted yet the endorsement of KBL
Former Senator Bongbong Marcos said that he has no final decision yet regarding his political plan for the 2022 elections despite that Kilusang Bagong Lipunan (KBL) has already named him as the party’s official presidential candidate.
On Friday, KBL announced this decision saying that the officers and members of the party unanimously voted for him to their standard-bearer.
Through a recorded speech, BBM thanked the members of the party, that was established by his father former President Ferdinand Marcos, for choosing him. However, in that speech, the former Senator did not say directly if he is accepting the endorsement.
In a separate media forum, based on the report from CNN Philippines, Bongbong Marcos said that he has not came up with a final decision regarding his future political endeavor. “Of course, if they have endorsed me as their candidate, I Also thank them for that expression of support and trust they’ve bestowed upon me. I don’t know that you can interpret it as acceptance,” he said.
However, he promised that his announcement regarding this will happen soon. BBM said that little by little, he is building his plan because “national candidacy is a different candidacy.” The former Senator stressed that the decision has yet to be made but said that he is very close to announcing. Bongbong Marcos has been part of the Nacionalista Party since 2009.
Meanwhile, three political personalities have already announced their presidential candidacy – Senator Ping Lacson (with Senate President Tito Sotto for Vice President), Senator Manny Pacquiao (has not announced yet his Vice President), and Manila Mayor Isko Moreno (with Dr. Willie Ong for Vice President.
