‘Parang hindi 92’: Imee says Imelda more lively after Bongbong’s Eleksyon 2022 win
Former First Lady Imelda Marcos was more lively after the victory of her son, presumptive president Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr., Senator Imee Marcos said Wednesday.
“Siyempre ‘yung nanay ko sobrang excited n’ya at tuwang-tuwa s’ya sa mga pangyayari. She is suddenly able to hear, to walk, lahat ng sakit-sakit nung panahon ng COVID, lahat ng nararamdaman biglang nawawala. Maliksing-maliksi at parang hindi na siya ulit 92, kundi 29,” Imee said in an ambush interview at the House of Representatives.
Meanwhile, Imee said her personal relation with the presumptive president would be of great help for both the Executive and Legislative branches of government.
“Sapat na siguro maging [role ang] super ate sa Senado. Okay na ‘yon malaking bagay na ‘yon at maraming nang trabaho yon,” Imee said.
“I think its very, very useful for both the Executive Branch as well as Legislative Branch to work hand and hand. Ideally, we have a more harmonious relationship. I think it’s not a big secret that President [Rodrigo] Duterte had a share of problems and issues with the legislature, even as he remained most popular throughout his term,” she added.
