The camp of former Senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. on Wednesday confirmed he will run in the 2022 national elections.
Atty. Vic Rodriguez made the announcement in an interview on ANC.
“He will be definitely running for 2022,” Rodriguez said.
Rodriguez declined to disclose the position.
“We will be making an announcement as to his plans for 2022,” he said in a separate interview on CNN-Philippines.
This came a day after the Supreme Court, sitting as the Presidential Electoral Tribunal (PET), dismissed for lack of merit the election protest filed by Marcos against Vice President Leni Robredo over the results of the 2016 race.
SC spokesperson Brian Hosaka told reporters that the court unanimously voted to junk the protest, nearly five years after it was filed by Marcos on June 29, 2016.
Robredo’s counter-protest has also been dismissed, the court said. — with Virgil Lopez/KG/RSJ, GMA News
