WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
Presidential candidate Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. and running mate Sara Duterte will be in Bustillos, Manila on Saturday, April 23, for a Uniteam rally in the heart of Isko Moreno country.
The rally site is just 1.3 kilometers away from Malacañang Palace, and 9.7 kilometers away from Macapagal Boulevard in Pasay where Vice President Leni Robredo is holding a rally at the same time.
Both rallies are a battle for the big catch that is the National Capital Region (NCR), home to 7.3 million voters.
The capital Manila is the 2nd most vote rich city, next to Quezon City, with 1.1 million voters. Marcos won Manila and all other 15 cities in the NCR in the 2016 vice presidential race.
Pre-program starts at 3 pm, and the main event starts 5 pm.
