Statement of Senator Ferdinand "Bongbong" R. Marcos, Jr.

17 May 2016

I am extremely grateful for the overwhelming display of trust and confidence our Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) have given me, as shown in the results of the Overseas Absentee Voting (OAV). As our country’s new heroes, they deserve more from the government and they can always count on my support.

I’d like to express my gratitude too for the Ilocano voters who have rallied behind our call for a revived and stronger Solid North, voters in the National Capital Region who gave me a clear majority, and all the voters all over the country who supported me and my call for national unity.

But this trust bestowed in me also carries with it the responsibility to protect each and every vote cast for me. Rest assured, I will do everything in my power to ensure that in the end the true will of the Filipino people will prevail in this election.
