Platforms and Stand on Issues

COVID-19 Pandemic “Tawid-Covid, Beyond Covid” program aims to strengthen the country’s healthcare system by increasing the salaries of medical workers.
Strengthen the Research Institute for Tropical Medicine (RITM) and the University of the Philippines’ National Institute of Molecular Biology and Biotechnology (BIOTECH).
Be self-sufficient in vaccine production.
Resume face-to-face classes by deploying vaccinated teachers.
Economic Recovery Modernize existing seaports, airports and railways to raise the country’s import and export capacity and, eventually, expedite economic recovery.
Vaccinate workers under micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) to increase economic activity.
Drug War Campaign Pursue drug war with same vigor but more focus on prevention, youth education about the ill-effects of drugs and improvement of rehabilitation centers.
West Philippine Sea Will employ President Duterte’s approach to dealing with China by reaching bilateral consensus with the superpower.
Peace Talks With Communist Rebels No definitive platform yet on curbing insurgency but lamented senators’ cut on NTF-Elcac’s budget.
In 2010, he urged the Arroyo administration to resume peace talks with the New People’s Army as it stepped-up attacks during election season.
Climate Change and the Environment In 2016, he urged all levers of government to integrate climate change mitigation.
Government infrastructure projects should be designed to mitigate the effects of climate change, he said.
All concerned government agencies must improve their capacity to respond to natural calamities, he added.
Infrastructure Modernize Philippine infrastructure to make the country a logistics hub in Asia by upgrading the country’s airports, seaports and railways; investing in port automation, computerization and Artificial Intelligence; and developing smart ports that use shared data platforms and machine learning.
Education No definitive platform yet, but urged the Senate to restore budget cuts in departments overseeing education. In a statement this September, he said that education is “a continuing public expenditure that naturally grows proportionately with the burgeoning population.”
Agriculture Transfer of National Irrigation Administration (NIA) to the Department of Agriculture to help Filipino farmers improve their agricultural productivity.
Eyes 100% coverage of irrigation in all available areas by establishing water impounding facilities instead of dams.
Same Sex Marriage and LGBTQ+ Rights In 2016, he expressed support for same-sex marriage. He said that it’s time for Filipinos to recognize the union of homosexual couples. He added that people should be “treated equally whoever you are.”
The ABS-CBN Franchise and Press Freedom No reported stance on the ABS-CBN franchise or press freedom.
However, there are rumors that Solicitor General Jose Calida’s quo warranto petition against ABS-CBN was filed on February 2020 at the behest of Marcos.
Divorce In 2016, he expressed disapproval of divorce because he loves his wife. “I love my wife. I do not want to divorce her,” he said.
Labor Rights In 2016, he vowed to end contractualization and promised to create more local jobs.
He also pushed for the increase of minimum wage and the establishment of the Jobs Creation Council.
Had he won the vice-presidency, he wanted to head the Labor Department because it is a key to solving poverty that has long plagued the country.
Death Penalty In 2016, he supported the reimposition of the death penalty for drug traffickers.
Political Dynasty Political dynasty is “natural,” he said, adding that voters should not quickly judge dynasties. He further reasoned that the political dynasty is not exclusive to the Philippines but other countries as well.
Marcos’s Martial Law He will not apologize for his father’s atrocities, adding that apologies are insufficient for some groups.

  • Senatorial candidate and Marcos apologist Atty. Larry Gadon

Graft and Corruption Charges

  • Marcos was sued in 2016, at the height of the campaign, due to allegations of corruption. Complainants cited pork barrel whistleblower Benhur Luy’s digital files showing nine of Marcos’s special allotment release orders (SARO) funneled PhP205 million of his PDAF to bogus foundations. They added that Marcos’s supposed conduit, Catherine Mae Santos, conspired with Janet Lim-Napoles to commit plunder.

Other Controversies

  • Human rights groups seek to disqualify Marcos for material misrepresentation in his certificate of candidacy and conviction in 1995 for non-filing of income tax return.
  • Marcos was convicted by Quezon City Regional Trial Court in 1995 of eight counts of violations of the 1977 tax code specifically for non-filing of income tax return. The Court of Appeals in 1997 upheld the conviction and the fines imposed by the trial court but removed the seven-year prison term. The conviction became final after Marcos withdrew his appeal before the Supreme Court in 2001.
  • Retired Senior Associate Justice Carpio in his column alleged that Bongbong Marcos, Imelda Marcos, Irene Marcos and Imee Marcos as heirs of Ferdinand Marcos Sr have yet to pay estate tax worth P203.819 billion inclusive of interest, penalties and other surcharges.
  • Marcos denies having troll farms as he leads informal online surveys and is being hounded by accusations from a Cambridge Analytica whistleblower that his family asked their services to “rebrand his family’s image in social media.”
