Marcos takes over on June 30 from Rodrigo Duterte and will serve until 2028, with the occupant president’s little girl, Sara Duterte-Carpio, as his VP
A meeting of Philippines Congress on Wednesday working closely together pronounced Ferdinand Marcos Jr, the child and namesake of the famous late tyrant, the victor of the current month’s political race and affirmed he would turn into the country’s next president.
The decree formalizes the once unbelievable re-visitation of force of the country’s most well known political line, after a 1986 “individuals power” revolt drove the Marcos family in banishment in Hawaii.
Marcos, 64, otherwise called “Bongbong,” takes over on June 30 from Rodrigo Duterte and will serve until 2028, with the occupant president’s little girl, Sara Duterte-Carpio, as his VP.
“I ask all of you, petition God for me, hope everything turns out great for me,” Marcos, wearing the conventional white Filipino barong shirt and pants, said after the decree. “I believe that should do well for this country.”
Marcos won 31.6 million or 58.77% of voting forms cast, with a 82% turnout.
He won by an edge unheard of since before his dad’s imperious, 1965-1986 rule, a period portrayed by defilement, military regulation and unashamed excess of the principal family, a story his mission looked to overturn.
Marcos’ better half and three children were likewise present in Congress, where their family has won a seat in pretty much every political decision since its return from exile during the 1990s. Likewise going to was 92-year-old female authority Imelda, the compelling power-representative, who got clearly adulation from the house as she modeled for pictures.
He is very nearly 100% to order a regulative supermajority, with sister Imee a congressperson, child Ferdinand a representative and cousin Martin Romualdez, the house greater part pioneer expected to be named speaker, exhibiting the degree of the power the family will use.
He has said his center regions will be energy costs, occupations, framework and training.
Marcos is as yet collecting his bureau, which should explore high expansion, government obligation and a precarious international strategy offset with partner the United States and an inexorably persuasive China. In spite of the edge of triumph, Marcos’ standard will be disruptive, with broad annoyance among adversaries and survivors of abuse over what they see as verifiable revisionism to demonstrate the family’s innocence.
Imee Marcos on Wednesday said the family was “extremely, thankful briefly possibility” in power.
