BBM – Presidential candidate and former Senator Bongbong Marcos wants to turn the Presidential Communication on Good Government (PCGG) from allegedly being an “anti-Marcos agency” to a “real anti-corruption” body.
Former Sen. Bongbong Marcos is the standard-bearer of Partido Federal ng Pilipinas in the upcoming May 2022 Elections. Undeniably, he has the most controversial bid among the 10 candidates for president in the upcoming poll.
Several petitions seeking the cancellation of the candidacy of Marcos Jr. and his disqualification from the presidential race were previously filed before the Commission on Elections (Comelec). The issues regarding his tax evasion cases, the alleged ill-gotten wealth of his family, and the regime of his late father resurfaced.
The body that investigates the alleged ill-gotten wealth of the Marcos family is the Presidential Communication on Good Government (PCGG). Based on a report on ABS-CBN News, the anti-corruption agency has already recovered over P170 billion of the $10 billion alleged ill-gotten wealth of the Marcos family.
Recently, former Sen. Bongbong Marcos, also popularly called BBM amid the election period, spoke o his plans on the Presidential Communication on Good Government (PCGG) if he wins president in the upcoming poll.
According to the report, speaking to DZRJ, BBM said that the present form of PCGG is no longer performing the function “that they were originally created to do”. He stressed that the country still has a huge problem with regards to corruption.
The standard-bearer of Partid federal ng Pilipinas is planning to strengthen the PCGG or create another body that will perform as an anti-corruption agency. He believes that PCGG was created as an “anti-Marcos agency” and he wants to turn it into a “real anti-corruption agency” if he wins president in the upcoming May 2022 Elections.
