Outgoing Senator Bongbong Marcos, son of the late and one of the greatest Philippine Presidents if not the greatest, Ferdinand E. Marcos was in Davao City last Friday night and met with President-elect Rodrigo Duterte in a casual but fun manner as how Mr. President wanted his meetings to be.
President Duterte chose to be quiet on what they discussed since some Media people are only waiting for his statements to be twisted – especially when it involves sensitive issues.Among the matters discussed informally, was the possible September burial of Marcos’ father, Ferdinand Marcos who ruled during te Philippine’s so-called golden era this year as Duterte promised during his campaign.
Many Martial Law activists were saddened by the news to bury Marcos in the Libingan Ng Mga Bayani or Heroes’ Cemetery – but him winning the presidency is a clear indication of what the majority of Filipinos wanted. A cabinet post was also dicussed but only if it will not hamper the electoral protest filed by Bongbong Marcos on massive election fraud by the Liberal Party that favored rival Leni Robredo for the Vice Presidency.
