By ROGER M. BALANZA
IF THERE WILL BE NO MARCOS-SARA OR SARA-MARCOS TANDEM IN THE 2022 PRESIDENTIAL RACE, WILL THERE BE A BONGBONG MARCOS VERSUS SARA DUTERTE CONTEST IN THE RACE TO MALACANANG?
This scenario of a battle with the daughter of President Rodrgo Duterte was spelled out no less by Senator Ferdunand “Bongbong” Marcos as latest political developments point to Sara in a presidential run in 2022.
Marcos is running for president and had been courting Sara to be his running mate. Reports emanating from his camp however, also said that Marcos was agreeable to running for vice president under Sara.
‘I entered this race with thoughts that I should run for president. That’s what I’m doing. I know what my plan is. We will continue my plan. That is what we are doing,” Marcos said.
Marcos, son and namesake of the late dictator President Ferdinand Marcos, made this declaratiion to push through with his presidential ambition following speculations that Sara Duterte joining the Lakas-CMD of President Cloria Macapagal Arroyo is a prelude to her filing her bid for the presidency as a substitute candidate.
