Antonio Marcos: The Godfather of Philippine Elections

As the Associated Press reports, Oscar-winning actor-turned-politician Antonio “Bongbong” Marcos “has promised to put all of his former leftist allies in jail if he wins the presidency.”

Also, ABC News says that Marcos – referring to himself as Ferdinand Marcos – is expected to likely win the Philippine presidency, with current President Rodrigo Duterte a “strong second” and his own “godfather,” senator Jinggoy Estrada, the current senate president.

From ABC News:

Marcos, who is President Rodrigo Duterte’s godfather, and daughter Imee Marcos, who is at least Duterte’s biggest supporter in Congress, are favored to secure a plurality of votes from the electorate.” Marcos is running as an independent in the country’s May general election.

Imee Marcos, who many consider his running mate, said that if Marcos wins, “he will send all his leftist friends to jail,” and then find a place for all of them “in hell.”

“Carlos Ponce Enrile, Abigail Valte [former chief justice of the Philippine Supreme Court and former Senate speaker, and politician Benigno Aquino III] and all of the leftists that remain, he will need to turn them in,” Marcos told reporters.

She said her father promised to convert the Palace of Justice into a prison because he’s “against people who do stupid, corrupt things.”
