A tandem between former senator Ferdinand ‘’Bongbong’’ Marcos Jr., and Sen. Christopher ‘’Bong’’ Go is not impossible in 2022.

‘’Everything is possible,’’ Senator Imee Marcos said of a Marcos-Go tandem on Saturday, October 16.

During a DWIZ radio interview, Imee said her brother ‘’is talking to everyone’’ regarding his need for a vice presidential candidate.

Marcos is the official presidential candidate of the Partido Federal ng Pilipinas (PFP) while Go, earlier endorsed as the presidential bet of the Partido Demokratikong Pilipino (PDP)-Laban party, filed his certificate of candidacy (COC) for the vice presidential slot under the PDP-Laban Cusi wing.

In Go’s stead, the Cusi wing endorsed the presidential candidacy of Senator Ronald ‘’Bato’’ dela Rosa.

Later, dela Rosa said he does not mind being replaced by the party with anyone if chooses, including presidential daughter Davao city Mayor Sara Duterte.

‘’He (Dela Rosa) is good soldier. He is all heart,’’ Imee said of Dela Rosa.

Go previously said that he “can work with anyone”.

Before Bongbong filed his COC as PFP presidential candidate, Imee said a Sara-Bongbong tandem is an arrangement “made in heaven”.

She said Sara’s decision to seek reelection as Davao city mayor is a big disappointment to her ‘’but we respect each other’s decision.’’

She said she expects the ’’cloudy’’ political atmosphere to clear up when the November 15 deadline for the fling of substitution ends.

With so many presidential aspirants in the race, Imee said the people should vote for the one who has a clear vision for the country hobbled by COVID-19 pandemic.
