Marcos Jr. Promises Freedom From COVID Poverty and Cancel Culture
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.
