President-elect Ferdinand "Bongbong" Marcos Jr. on Sunday greeted the nation on the 124th anniversary of independence, as he discussed his platform in broad strokes -- freedom from the pandemic and from division.

The 64-year-old, who will be sworn into office on June 30 as the 17th president of the Republic at noon, won a landslide victory in the May 9 elections, promising to unite the Filipino people while refusing to debate his opponents on the alleged abuses of his father.

"Uunahin ko na diyan ang kalayaan mula sa kahirapang dala ng pandemiya," Marcos said in a video blog.

"Ang kapakanan ng ating mga manggagawa, ang ating mga maliliit na negosyo ang iba't iba pang mga sektor na hanggang ngayon ay hindi pa nakabalik sa normal... iyan ang mga patuloy pa natin tinatalakay kasama ng lahat ng pinakamagagaling na eksperto," he said.

"Kalayaan mula sa makaluma mapanghusga at mapanirang pag-iisip na siyang nagdadala ng galit at pagkamuhi sa kapwa at patuloy na pinagwawatak-watak ang ating lipunan. cancel culture man ito, discrimination, mga bayolenteng hate crime. Lahat yan ay hindi na katanggap-tanggap sa ating makabagong panahon," he said.

"Palawigin ang ating pagrespeto, pagtanggap at pag-unawa sa isa't-isa," he said.
