HIGHLIGHTS: Ferdinand Marcos Jr.-Sara Duterte proclamation rally


The 64-year-old son and namesake of the late dictator Ferdinand Marcos currently leads in pre-election presidential surveys. He formally launches his campaign on Tuesday, February 8, with his running mate Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte.

They’ve chosen neither Ilocos Norte nor Davao City for this proclamation rally, but instead the Philippine Arena in Bulacan, owned by the influential Iglesia ni Cristo, whose endorsement is highly coveted for its bloc voting tradition. The UniTeam is expecting 25,000 attendees for the ticketed event.

Doors of the arena open at 2 pm. The proclamation rally starts at 4 pm. Tune in to this page for the live updates.

The tandem of Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. and Sara Duterte has so far announced 11 members of their senatorial slate.

Back in January, the Marcos camp released a list containing 10 names. Marcos spokesperson Vic Rodriguez said Sagip Representative Rodante Marcoleta is “the first pick.” Marcoleta is a member of Iglesia ni Cristo, an influential religious group whose endorsement is sought after by candidates due to its practice of bloc voting. INC also owns the Philippine Arena in Bulacan where the Marcos-Duterte tandem will hold their proclamation rally.

The latest addition, just announced on Friday, February 4, is Gregorio Honasan II, a former senator and a retired soldier who played a key role in the 1986 People Power Revolution that ousted the late dictator Ferdinand Marcos.
