MANILA, Dec 9 (Mabuhay) —
The tandem of former Senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. and Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte has included former Public Works Secretary Mark Villar in their Senate slate for the 2022 elections.
“Iluluklok po natin sa Senado ‘yang si Mark Villar [We will elect Mark Villar to the Senate). I don’t need to be campaign for him a lot because you can see his work, when you travel, you can see the projects, infrastructure,” Marcos said during a gathering in Cavite hosted by Senator Ramon “Bong” Revilla Jr.
“Ramdam na ramdam sa buong Cavite at sa buong bansa, si Secretary Mark Villar [You can feel Mark Villar here in Cavite and even nationwide],” he added.
Villar, a member of the PDP-Laban faction led by Energy Secretary Alfonso Cusi, is joining former presidential spokesperson Harry Roque and former Senator Jinggoy Estrada of Pwersa ng Masang Pilipino in Marcos-Duterte’s Senate slate.
Marcos, son of the late dictator Ferdinand Marcos Sr., and Duterte, daughter of President Rodrigo Duterte, are running under the UniTeam coalition.
Villar, meanwhile, is the son of former Senate President Manny Villar and incumbent Senator Cynthia Villar. (MNS)
