A public servant must not say no to the president if called for service to the country in whatever position. Bongbong Marcos said this when asked if he’s going to accept the DILG Secretary post when offered to him. So, it can be confirmed that he’s likely to be the next DILG secretary since the president is just hesitant to give it to him because he’s not sure if Marcos would want to prioritize working in the government instead of concentrating on his electoral protest against Leni Robredo.

[VIDEO]: ‘If the President asks you to serve in whatever capacity, you can’t say no,’ says former senator Bongbong Marcos, who will be eligible for a government post after the one-year appointment ban on losing candidates lapses next month.
Yes to a Cabinet Post
Bongbong Marcos said that he would accept a Cabinet post if offered by the President. Marcos, who would be eligible for a government post after the one-year appointment ban lapses next month, showed the media his interest of a Cabinet position. He added that he would be happy and honored to serve in that capacity.
Sueno Out, Marcos In
The President just fired Ismael Sueno as interior secretary over some corruption allegations. Political observers are keen to predict that he could be offered the vacated post. Du30 had said Marcos is probably not interested to be given an appointed post – but recently, Marcos made it clear that he is very interested and in fact, dying to start working.
Robredo Turned Respectful
Robredo has suffered tremendously on her approval rating. Liberal Party mates can only blame the black propaganda against her for this. However, her anti-drug war speech submitted to a side event of a UN conference really did put a lot of Filipinos off – especially OFWs and tourism players. She now said that she can only respect the president’s decision.
Not used to being Jobless
Governor Imee Marcos vouched that her brother is already very anxious to get back to work. It is understandable that since politics is in their blood, they are already exposed at an early age to do public service every day of their life. Perhaps, being jobless is not in Bongbong Marcos’ vocabulary.
