Former Senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos on Tuesday said he is keeping his options open in the upcoming 2022 elections.

“Napag-usapan na rin natin ang ama ko, eh sabi niya noon, ‘keep your options open’. Ganyan ang gagawin ko until I have to make a decision sa filing,” Marcos said in an interview with DZRH.

Marcos did not specify the position, but said he can run in the second congressional district of Ilocos Norte.

Recalling a conversation between him and Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte, Marcos added that she, too, is still not set on running for a position within the national government.

“Anything is still possible, although eight weeks na lang sa pag-file [ng certificate of candidacy). Marami pang mangyayari,” Marcos added.

“Alam mo naman ang mga politika sa Pilipinas, mabilis ang galaw. Kahit yung alliances ng mga partido, hindi

pa nabubuo. Mahirap naman mag-decide nang maaga tapos papalitan,” he added.
