Bongbong Marcos to be appointed as DILG secretary
Former senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. will be the new Secretary of Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG), according to Politiko.
While Marcos is silent for now, it said that Duterte was preparing for Marco's entry.
After hearing the news, Marcos supporters were excited and each one of them supports such announcement.
One of the Duterte supporters, Faith Cabanilla said she find it amusing because knowing that the previous DILG Secretary was Mar Roxas. So, she thinks that Marcos can do much better than Roxas.
Ewan ko na lang. Parang napamura ako kakatawa sa appointment na ito. Napamura in a good way kasi 'di ba si Mar Roxas may hawak dati ng DILG? At sa totoo lang, mas malaki yata magagawa ni BBM sa posisyon na ito HABANG nagkukunwari si Leni na VP.
Based on Politiko it says, President Rodrigo Duterte is making preparations for Marcos’ entry into the Cabinet after the ban on appointing losing candidates in the May 2016 elections expires.
As interior secretary, Marcos will wield tremendous influence on local politikos and governments.
During the Aquino administration, it was widely believed that Mar Roxas was named Interior Secretary to cultivate relationships with local politikos to advance his presidential ambitions.
With Marcos’ imminent appointment to the Department of Interior and Local Government, it seems the son and namesake of dictator Ferdinand Marcos isn’t giving up yet on his presidential dreams even as his election protest against Vice President Leni Robredo is ongoing.
