Philippines election: Ferdinand "Bongbong" Marcos Jr. wins presidency in landslide victory



The Philippines woke to a new but familiar political landscape on Tuesday, after an election triumph by Ferdinand Marcos Jr., popularly known as “Bongbong” and son of an ousted dictator, marking a stunning comeback for the country’s most famous political dynasty.

An unofficial tally showed Bongbong had surpassed the 27.5 million votes needed for a majority, setting the stage for a once-unthinkable return to the rule of the Marcos family.

“Even if the voting is not yet done, my gratitude cannot wait. I extend my thanks to everyone. To all who helped out, to all who joined our cause, to your sacrifices, to your hard work, to your time, your abilities, your eagerness,” he told his supporters.

  1. As expected the same script of the opposition. "DISINFORMATION" LOL Foreigners have really thick faced as always 🤣 Whatever atleast a clever man won the presidency instead of that dumb woman who can't even do math HAHAHSHSHS

  2. Do you have to say " dictator's son"? He won landslide more than 50% lead. What does that tells you? It was a massive propaganda and character assassination done by mainstream media towards his father. Now that social media rules, black propaganda does not work any longer.

  3. Before calling Marcos a dictator first do some mathematics. First, before Ferdinand E. Marcos became president in 1965, the Philippine debt was already 600 million dollars. For 20 years of Marcos regime from 1965 to 1986, the year he was ousted, the national debt of the Philippines was only 26 BILLION DOLLARS. THE DEBT OF SOUTH KOREA IN 1986 WAS 48 BILLION DOLLARS WHILE MARCOS, 26 BILLION ONLY. MALAYSIA DEBT IN 1986 TOO, IS 42 BILLION DOLLARS WHILE MARCOS, ONLY 26 BILLION DOLLARS ONLY. NOW, COUNT ANOTHER 20 YEARS AFTER MARCOS WAS OUSTED IN 1986, THAT IS, FROM 1987 TO 2007 from Cory Aquino (1986), Fidel V Ramos (1992), Joseph Estrada (1998), and Gloria Macapagal Arroyo (2001 to 2007), that is, a total of 20 years. The debt of the Philippines in 2007 is 90 BILLION DOLLARS. NOW, THINK FOR YOURSELF! IT IS NOT FERDINAND E. MARCOS WHO STOLE FROM THE PHILIPPINE TREASURY. MARCOS BUILT A LOT OF EXPRESSWAYS AND HIGHWAYS WHOSE TOLL FEES RANGING FROM 100 PESOS TO 2,000 PESOS PER DAY WITH MORE THAN ONE MILLION VEHICLES PER DAY (BUSES, CORPORATE DELIVERY TRUCKS, PRIVATE CARS, TAXIS) PAYING THESE AMOUNTS. IF CORY AQUINO AND FIDEL V. RAMOS WANTS TO PAY THE 26 BILLION DOLLARS PHILIPPINE DEBT, THEY CAN PAY IT IN 10 YEARS. IF YOU COMBINE CORY AQUINO AND FIDEL V. RAMOS, THAT IS 12 YEARS. INSTEAD OF USING THESE TOLL GATE FEES PAID BY THE PUBLIC BUSES, CORPORATE DELIVERY TRUCKS, THE PRIVATE CARS DEPENDING ON THE DISTANCE OF TRAVEL PER PROVINCE. THE PHILIPPINE DEBT IS PAID UP IN 10 YEARS USING THESE EXPRESSWAYS THAT PRESIDENT MARCOS BUILT. PLUS, MARCOS WIFE, IMELDA MARCOS, ALSO BUILT ELEVATED RAILWAYS CALLED LRT, THE MORE THAT PHILIPPINE DEBT 26 BILLION DOLLARS CAN BE PAID UP IN 5 YEARS ALONE. CORY AQUINO AND FIDEL RAMOS GOVERNMENTS STOLE THESE MONEY EARNED FROM TOLL GATES AND ELEVATED TRAINS. INSTEAD, THEY BALLOONED PHILIPPINE DEBT TO 90 BILLION DOLLARS IN 2007. PRESIDENT MARCOS IS THE VICTIM OF THEIR BLACK PROPAGANDA. IN 1986, THE PESO DOLLAR EXCHANGE RATE WAS ONLY 18 PESOS PER ONE DOLLAR SO CORY AQUINO AND FIDEL RAMOS CAN PAY THE PHILIPPINE DEBT IF THEIR GOVERNMENTS ARE NOT THIEVES The Philippines was even receiving AT LEAST 2 BILLION DOLLARS REMITTANCES ARE SUFFICIENT TO PAY THE DEBT OF THE PHILIPPINES. THE OVERSEAS FILIPINO WORKERS OR OFW's WHICH WAS ORIGINALLY ESTABLISHED BY IMELDA MARCOS IN 1979 TO HELP PHILIPPINE ECONOMY THE REASON WHY THERE ARE PLENTY OF MALLS OR SM MALLS IN THE PHILIPPNES. Also, the PAGCOR IS EARNING BILLION DOLLARS EVERY YEAR. WHERE DID CORY AQUINO AND FIDEL RAMOS BROUGHT THESE NATIONAL INCOMES THAT THEY WERE NOT ABLE TO PAY THE 26 BILLION DOLLARS NATIONAL DEBT IN 1986? PAGCOR WAS CREATED BY FERDINAND E. MARCOS DURING THE MARTIAL LAW YEAR IN 1972 TO HELP PHILIPPINE ECONOMY THE REASON WHY HE IS ABLE TO BUILD THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS OF PUBLIC SCHOOLS BOTH IN HIGH SCHOOLS AND ELEMENTARIES. IN U.S. ALONE IN 1999, THE DOLLAR REMITTANCE TO THE PHILIPPINES IS ONE BILLION DOLLARS. CORY AQUINO GOVERNMENT CAN EVEN PAY THE 26 billion dollars in 5 YEARS. WHAT DID CORY AQUINO DO TO PAY BACK 26 BILLION DOLLARS WITH THIS GREAT SUM OF MONEY IN HER 6 YEARS PRESIDENCY? THE MORE SQUATTERS INCREASED AND LANDLESS..

  4. The family was not ousted. Marcos Sr. Plan is going to Paoay but the liberal and the Americans manipulated and brought/kidnapped Marcos family into Hawaii.

    Mabuhay Bongbong Marcos! At last a vindication of your Family’s name!

  5. An dis-respectful comment. " DICTATORS SON" DIS INFORMATION" we Filipinos are NOT IGNORANT".. We have been used many many times by some unfriendly foriegn groups. Not this time, Filipinos are on the way for a more greater nation.. GOD BLESS THE PHILIPPINES 🇵🇭🇵🇭🇵🇭🇵🇭

  6. How dare…how about if we say…American journalist under control of UNITED STATES a of the corp…so they the one watch and do thing for you..
    I feel so sorry for true American…always begging that he thinks they are the powerful..HOLY COW! Think about your history …then ask to yourself if you are qualified to say things with other culture or country…if you are the best..

  7. DISINFORMATION? You better check your facts. The mainstream media has portrayed the Marcoses as EVIL, yet thanks to alternative media platform (Facebook, YouTube, TikTok), the Filipinos have awaken from decades of lies brought about by Liberal Party.

  8. His father was a Nation Builder. We are very grateful and this is a Great Vendication. Congratulations to our beloved President Elect BBM! and Congratulations our dearest VP-elect Sara Duterte. God bless you more! Our beloved Maharlika 🇵🇭 is now very happy.

  9. We need to be better at discernment :(( 🌸

    Even though VP Leni didn’t win, I will keep on supporting Angat Buhay projects and I will never be blinded again by Marcos’s propaganda. Ty vp Leni and fellow kakampinks for fighting for what is right and good governance for all. hugs ☹️🌸💗

  10. Filipinos around the world are celebrating BONGBONG MARCOS JR as Our New Elected President in the Philippines. We don’t care the bashers and these ignorant activists… GODBLESS U PHILIPPINES!!!!

  11. I am Filipino-Canadian. As an outsider like Global news (Canadian news agency), it should respect the Philippines, the Philippine President and the position instead of subtly and ignorantly using names (e.g., son of a dictator) that are uncalled for. You are journalist first and foremost, such should be unbiased and use thoroughly research first (aren't you wondering with an official count of 31M++ voted and it is a landslide victory). Canada is known to be an inclusive and diverse country. Please show some respect (remember what the Canadian gov't did to the Philippines dumping container of trash and took a while to get it back). Walk the talk. We don't need biased and discriminating slur from journalists. Get the facts right.

  12. If you only know the history, Pres Ferdinand Marcos is not actually a dictator. He protected the Filipinos in the 1986 "People Power" that was organized by his political rivals. Now the son win the landslide votes because Filipinos are now enlightened of what really happened over 3 decades ago and this is what the response to the political parties that throws dirt top the Marcoses. Our current president Duterte, made sure that the election is clean so he decided not to support for any candidates to make it fair. When Duterte started, the huge media giants in the Philippines influenced the international media that he is a "mad killer", but look at what the Philippines is today under his administration. Philippines is leading in fiscal progress and developments. of GDP is more than that of our neighboring countries. So my advise to the International media, don't rely on Philippine media alone, but do interviews on the streets and you will feel the real feelings of the Filipino people.

  13. The massive disinformation campaign was aimed against Bongbong Marcos (BBM) by the Pinks-Yellows. The information campaign from BBM were all true and there were no embellishments. While his opponent Leni, resorted in black propaganda. We heard more about negative talk and speeches painting BBM as a pariah, instead of talking about how she will better improve the Philippines. While BBM talked nothing but national unity, building the economy and building better relations with the opposing parties.

  14. We prayed hard to our almighty Father for his blessings, love & guidance on the Election Day for Ferdinand Marcos, Jr victory. We praise & thank our lord Jesus Christ for that blessings hoping that He continue to shower our President elect all His goodness each day as he continue his journey as our leader of our country, our beloved Philippines.🙏🙏🙏💕💕💕
