MANILA, Philippines — Vice-presidential candidate Senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos, Jr., is convinced that he has a chance in the May 9 polls.
This was according to the lawmaker when asked about his chances in the forthcoming elections.
“Chances are good, otherwise I would not be here, again from talking to our leaders, from talking to our allies mukha naman maganda ang ating tsansa nakikita naman natin na maraming tumutulong,” he said in an press briefing during the second day of his “Unity Caravan” in Bulacan.
Marcos added, “I am confident about the results so long as we continue to move in the right direction.”
Earlier, the independent vice presidential bet said he felt he might just win in the elections as he could see the warm reception he had been receiving in the many places where he campaigned and the expressions of support from local leaders.
“Sa aking nakikita at nababalitaan sa iba’t-ibang lugar ay maganda naman ang takbo ng kampanya at maganda naman ang pagtanggap sa akin ng ating mga kababayan na very warm, masigla at napakainit ang pagtanggap sa akin kaya kung malinis ang halalan, maganda na chances natin,” Marcos said.
Meanwhile, the senator welcomed the results of the Pulse Survey where he was tied with fellow vice-presidential aspirant Senator Chiz Escudero.
“We are glad that our numbers are good as we continue to connect with the people and convey to them our message of unity. But there’s much work to be done. We will continue to do what we have been doing with much more focus and vigor.”
On Friday, Marcos brought his Unity Caravan in Bulacan where he visited the towns of Meycauyan, Marilao, San Jose Del Monte and Balagtas.
He was welcomed by San Jose del Monte Mayor Reynaldo San Pedro and Balagtas Mayor Romeo Castro.
