Senator Imee Marcos Speaks on Marcoses and Dutertes

Senator Imee Marcos referred to her family, the Marcoses, as an ally “for life” of the Dutertes after Vice President-elect Sara Duterte‘s inauguration.

The term of the current and outgoing administration is about to end this June 30. President Rodrigo Roa Duterte, the 16th President of the Republic of the Philippines, will step down from his position and will be succeeded by president-elect Bongbong Marcos.

According to the 77-year-old President, he will return to being a private citizen after June 30. While the incoming administration has previously expressed its openness to having the outgoing President as one of the Cabinet members, it also stressed that no official offer was made yet.

Pres. Duterte’s eldest daughter, outgoing Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio, was elected as the next vice president. She recently had her oath-taking in her hometown and it was attended by the Dutertes and Marcoses.
