Davao City- Ilocos Norte Governor Imee Marcos did not hide her profuse like to the Dutertes saying “solid Sara kami” in an interview with reporters at the sideline of a business conference at Marco Polo Hotel here Friday.
Without a cue, she said the Marcoses are “solid Sara” supporters.
She said Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte is her “kumare” while the “Dutertes and Marcoses have been friends since a long time ago.”
The governor added that the President’s father was the “last man standing” in President Marcos’ Cabinet.
Mayor Duterte was earlier reported to be planning to run for Congress, a report that she later debunked. She was anticipated to be running for speakership if she runs and wins as congresswoman in 2019 polls.
Meanwhile, on the issue on the shift to federalism, Gov. Marcos said there is need for a thorough debate and discussion on it as well as on how the poorest regions of the country such as Cordillera and Muslim regions would be treated under federalism.
“We have to hammer out details of the nitty-gritty of the operational issues of federalism,” she said.
Marcos also expressed her frustration on what she said as delayed resolution of her brother Bongbong’s electoral protest to the winning of Vice President Leni Robredo.
“It’s high time to put closure on this. We did not invent evidences or fake news. Cheating really occurred in the last election. There is so much delay. Kailangan nang tapusin ito,” Gov. Marcos said. (mindanaosunchronicle.com/Cha Monforte)
