Presidential aspirant and Partido Federal ng Pilipinas (PFP) standard-bearer Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. lauded the ‘positive campaigning’ made by supporters who are promoting his presidential bid in the 2022 May national elections.

Marcos welcomed the positive campaigning started by his supporters to bolster his candidacy in his 184th BBM vlog titled “Pagkakaisa at hindi Pagkansela”.

The former lawmaker said he is pursuing a unique campaign style and avoiding ‘hate’ politics as well as gutter politics.

“Ikinatutuwa ko naman at hinahangaan ko ‘yung mga supporter natin dahil may ilang grupo na naglunsad ng napaka-positibong pangangampanya (I’m glad and admire our supporters because there are some groups who have launched this very positive campaign),” said Marcos.

“Mayroon nag-beach clean-up sa Boracay, nag-tree planting, may mga nag-community pantry, may nagpapakain, may gumagawa ng tinatawag nilang BBM discounts, kabaliktaran ito ng boycott (We had a beach clean-up in Boracay, tree planting, community pantry, feeding and there are those who made BBM discounts which is the opposite of a boycott).” The former senator also called on the followers of his political rivals to avoid the so-called ‘cancel culture’ or boycotting or hate politics especially during this time of COVID-19 pandemic.

Marcos added that he will continue to promote positive campaigns as he reminded his supporters not to engage in political bickering.

“Saludo ako sa mga ideyang ito dahil bukod sa makabago ay may malasakit sa kapwa at kapaligiran. Maraming salamat sa ating mga tagasuporta at ipagpatuloy nyo lang ang pagpapakalat ng maganda nating mensahe, sa halip na magkansela tayo ay magkaisa (I salute these ideas because aside from being new they are concerned with people and environment. I thank my supporters and continue to spread the good news, and instead of canceling let us unite),” the former Ilocos Norte governor said. (Melvin Sarangay)
