Rep. Imelda Marcos still alive, says daughter Imee

Ilocos Norte Gov. Imee Marcos on Monday said her mother, former First Lady and incumbent Rep. Imelda Romualdez Marcos, is still alive.

The younger Marcos made the clarification following a post on Twitter by actress and Bacoor, Cavite Mayor Lani Mercado-Revilla expressing condolences at the supposed death of the former First Lady.

"Our condolences to the Marcos Family. It was a pleasure and a privilege to work with Cong. Imelda Romualdez Marcos," Mercado-Revilla wrote in a tweet that has since been deleted.

Mercado-Revilla then posted an apology on Twitter to say the information she received was not true.

"I would like to apologize for my tweet which I have erased.I received a news break message informing the public about Mrs.Marcos," she wrote.
