Former Senator Ferdinand "Bongbong" Marcos Jr. will run for president in the coming 2022 elections if he has enough support.

Marcos issued such reply when asked what circumstances will prompt him to seek the presidency in 2022, given that he is ranking second among possible presidential bets in pre-election surveys.

"It is the usual [circumstances]. If there is a support for you, you have a vice president, senators, governors, mayors [who will support and run alongside you], you look at that," Marcos said during the Laging Handa briefing.

"Alliances have also become very important, and so I tend to go to grassroots, talk to the leaders. Mataas ka sa survey, titignan mo, totoo ba 'yan? Kailangan alamin mo sa local leaders," Marcos added.

(Yes, you rank high in surveys, and then you check if that is the truth on the ground by talking to local leaders.)
