Imelda Marcos Wants Bongbong to Run for President in 2016

Ilocos Norte congresswoman Imelda Marcos reveals to Anthony Taberna that she wants her son Senator Bongbong Marcos to run for president in 2016 this Thursday (September 12) in “Tapatan Ni Tunying”

The former first lady wants his unico hijo to follow the footsteps and continue the legacy of his father, the late former president Ferdinand Marcos, as she believes Bongbong is fit for the position.

“As his mother, I sent him to the best schools. He has an impressive track record and and a good vision for the country. What I like most about my children is that they love this country so much,” she stated.

The 84-year old Imelda also said that she has no plans of retiring yet.

“I don’t want to waste away my experience in serving the people. The government’s potential depends on the people’s commitment to help,” she said.

Despite Imelda’s support and encouragement, Bongbong said he remains uncertain about his presidential bid.

“When I was young, I really didn’t want to be involved in politics. I would always tell myself: why I should get into politics when my father already became president? Besides, running the country is not easy. So I really avoided it at first,” he said.

In the interview, Bongbong also answers questions regarding his family’s alleged ill-gotten wealth, which he considers a possible major problem if he runs for a higher government position.
