Senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr., the son of the late dictator President Ferdinand Marcos has been endorsed by the Kilusang Bagong Lipunan (KBL ) as its presidential candidate in next year’s elections.

Bongbong Marcos for presidency
May be an image of text that says 'Luis V. Teodoro MARCOS DID NOT ERADICATE CORRUPTION, CONTRARY TO WHAT DUTERTE IMPLIED. MARCOS CENTRALIZED IT: He DECIDED WHO CAN STEAL WITH IMPUNITY AMONG HIS OFFICIALS AND CRONIES, BUT He MADE SURE He GOT THE LION'S SHARE. He STOLE ENOUGH TO MAKE IT TO THE GUINNESS BOOK OF WORLD RECORDS.'

The 64-year-old Marcos lost the vice presidential race in 2016 to Vice President Leni Robredo and protested the results claiming he was cheated.

Marcos’ protest had been junked by the Supreme Court.

A coalition of victims of martial law expressed disgust at the possible presidential bid of Marcos.

“Bongbong’s run is a mad attempt for the Marcoses to return and restore their power and rule on a country pillaged and violated during Marcos’ martial law,” the Campaign Against the Return of the Marcoses and Martial Law (Carmma) said in a statement.

The group said Marcos’ political positioning was meant “to further evade accountability for their crimes, and to promote the historical lies that they have perpetuated.”

“It is also a form of direct support for Duterte’s continuation of his murderous rule, with the Marcoses serving as among his closest allies throughout his administration ridden with countless allegations of extrajudicial killings and other human rights violations, corruption and anti-people governance, and subservience to foreign interests,” Carmma said.
