The students were asked who they would vote for Vice President if the elections were held on the day of the survey.

Sen. Marcos was Number One among all the Vice Presidential candidates garnering 29 percent.

Earlier, Sen. Marcos’ pushed for the granting of full scholarships for students of all State Universities and Colleges (SUCs) to bolster the Iskolar ng Bayan Act of 2015 which only provided grants to top graduates of all public high schools.

Sen. Marcos was also the main proponent of the National Youth Commission during his first stint in the Lower House in the 9th Congress to empower the youth to be more participative in Nation Building.

“Bibigyan ko ng halaga ang pagtitiwalang ito na ipinagkaloob niyo sa akin. Marami pa akong gustong gawin para sa inyong kapakanan at kinabukasan pati na rin sa inyong mga pamilya at sa buong sambayanan,” Marcos concluded.
