LAOAG, Ilocos Norte (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte, candidate for Philippine president, has anointed his successor should he be elected in the coming May elections. And it is not his VP running mate Senator Alan Cayetano. Rather, it is Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos, Jr.
Duterte is running under the banner of the PDP-Laban Party while Marcos is the VP candidate of the People’s Reform Party.
The mayor made the statement in a meeting with Ilocos Governor Imee Marcos, during which he extolled the late President Ferdinand E. Marcos whom he considers a friend.
In the same meeting, Duterte said that if as president, he does not solve the criminality and other problems of the country within three to six months, he will turn the presidency over to Bongbong Marcos.
Cayetano has not returned our calls for comment, but we suspect he is very heartbroken.
