Presidential Frontrunner Bongbong Marcos: “Judge me not by my ancestors, but by my actions.”

BONGBONG MARCOS – The former Senator and presumptive president wants to be judged by his actions, not his ancestors.

The Filipino people have voted for the local and national elections 2022. The automated election was held last May 9, 2022 which was declared by Malacañang a holiday to give time for the people to vote. Ten candidates vied for the presidency.

Prior to the elections, Partido Federal ng Pilipinas standard-bearer and former Sen. Bongbong Marcos was leading the surveys conducted by opinion polling body Pulse Asia. He maintained his lead in voters’ preferences until the final survey conducted a month before the poll.

Marcos Jr.’s presidential bid was challenged by several petitions filed before the Commission on Elections (Comelec). Several petitions sought his disqualification from the race citing his tax evasion charges. The poll body junked all the petitions.
