In a TV interview with TV host Korina Sanchez aired on Saturday, Marcos admitted that he is worried about his disqualification cases filed against him but acknowledged the possibility that his running mate, Duterte, could become president if the petition against him is granted.

“Yes. If I am disqualified,” Marcos replied, when asked if the scenario is possible.

While the disqualification cases against Marcos remain unresolved at the Comelec, he said he would not let them get in the way of his plans.

“Of course. I take everything seriously. I worry about everything. But I do not let it distract me from the campaign,” he said.

To date, the Comelec has yet to rule on the petition to disqualify Marcos over his failure to file income tax returns and alleged failure to pay the corresponding tax deficiency. (with PNA report)
