Statement of Senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” R. Marcos, Jr. on Comelec’s decision allowing Mayor Duterte to run in the 2016 presidential election

I welcome the entry of Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte in the 2016 Presidential election.

Definitely, Mayor Duterte is already being anticipated to present his platform and style of governance in words and discourse more colorful than the usual.
