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.
