No Family Discussion Yet
Ilocos Norte Governor Imee Marcos on clarifies that she has not discussed with her family any plans to run for a Senate seat. This after her brother former Sen. Bongbong Marcos earlier said she has the makings of a “great senator.” “If ever I run for any office, the family will discuss it. As of now, we haven’t talked about it,” Marcos said in a statement. She will finish her third and final term as Ilocos Norte governor in 2019.
Bongbong Marcos thinks that the same as the COMELEC Chair’s scandal, Supreme Court Chief Justice’s impeachment cannot affect the electoral protest. In fact, in the history of the electoral protest, his case versus Robredo has already reached the highest progress.

Marcos knows that Robredo’s Camp would wish for him to run for Senator in 2019. This will require him to abandon the electoral protest against her. Such abandonment or withdrawal operates to render moot the protest due to lack of interest. He swears that this is not the case. It is his ultimate priority right now. His sister Imee Marcos can definitely help in the law-making division.
