What kind of leader will former Senator Ferdinand Marcos Jr. be if elected president next year? A working and unifying leader, according to the former senator.

Marcos debuted another political ad this time promising to focus on work towards the country’s equitable progress instead of engaging in bickering and lip service.

In the new ad, the presidential bet also called for unity instead of conflict and division, saying progress cannot be attain if Filipinos are divided.

The 45-second video, showing Marcos in a light blue polo shirt, carries his presidential campaign’s theme “Bangon Bayan Muli.” The ad uses the split-screen effect that shows the opposite situations of people in terms food security, healthcare, education, job, and agriculture.

“Hindi kumpleto ang pagbabago kung hati-hati tayo. Dapat walang alitan, pikunan, at kampihan. Isa lang ang pagbuhusan ng ating kakayahan – ang ating bayan,” Marcos says in the ad.

“Isa lang ako sa hindi titigil magtrabaho para makabangon tayo. Wala akong panahon na makipag-away, manira o ngumawngaw. Wala rin akong panahon para magyabang o mangako lamang,” he adds.

The same video shows Marcos’ priorities such as education, infrastructure, jobs, agriculture, and industrialization. “Lahat tayo ay kasama para bangon bayan muli,” Marcos says at end of the ad.

The latest ad has been posted on Twitter by former Cavite congressman and journalist Gilbert Remulla.

Marcos has become the favorite presidential contender based on recent pre-election surveys. His running mate, Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte, has also topped a recent survey on preferred vice presidential bet.
