Presidential aspirant former Senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. wants to tandem with fellow presidential bet Senator Manny Pacquiao as his vice president in the 2022 polls to corner votes of the boxing champion’s bailiwicks in the Visayas and Mindanao.

“Very obvious naman yung preference namin, sinasabing may ‘Solid North,’ mas malakas kami sa norte. Si Bongbong may [National Capital Region] din, malakas din naman kahit paano. Tapos Region 8. Pero medyo takot sa Mindanao, medyo bulag kami doon,” Sen. Imee Marcos , Bongbong’s sister, said in Teleradyo interview Wednesday.

The statement of Senator Imee doused cold water to specupations that Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte and Bongbong had hatched up a tandem for the coming polls during a recent meeting in Cebu City.

“So naturally we’re tending towards the Mindanao and VisMin candidates,” the senator said.


She also said they are considering Pacquiao to be her brother’s running mate should the boxer-turned-politician is willing to slide down to a vice presidential bid.
