Senator Alan Peter Cayetano who was the running mate of President-elect Rodrigo Duterte commented that a Cabinet post for Bongbong Marcos are mere speculations since there’s a one year ban from now to take a government post for losing candidates. He advised Marcos to focus on the proceedings of the electoral protest he’s about to lodge against the Liberal Party that would affect the proclaimed V.P. Leni Robredo’s standing.
He also added that next year’s appointment by the president is also not relevant, as a lot of things can happen any time soon within the one year span. When it is true that accepting another post can hamper the electoral protest scheduled to be filed on June 28, 2016, Marcos remains positive that the V.P. slot is reserved for him despite what Cayetano’s opinions are considering that they were rivals for the Vice Presidential post – and Bongbong is the favored one by Duterte.
If the general public is in limbo on Bongbong Marcos’s future role in the Duterte administration, so does Cayetano! It’s really a wait and see game now – but one thing is certain, that something is cooking and it’s cooking like fast food!
