However, the PFP standard-bearer shot the question down, saying that he's not fighting with anyone.
"I don't… We have… Senator Ping is filing as we speak, so it's not going to be that kind of election. Marami kami eh,” BBM clarified.
The reporter then asked if Sen. Bongbong was ready to come face to face with VP Leni Robredo.
“Ready kayong maka-face to face ulit na kasama sa election si VP Leni?” the reporter inquired.
Sen. Bongbong said he would not file his COC if he were not ready.
"I would not file my Certificate Of Candidacy if I was not ready to campaign. If I was not ready to answer all your questions. And if… So I'm ready to answer all your questions, I'm ready to campaign, and that's what we're going to do," BBM said.
The former senator then expounded on what he meant when he said he "will bring a unifying leadership."
Sen. Bongbong said that his goal is for the country to unify now in the face of the health and economic crisis ravaging the country.
“Yan ang kailangan natin ngayon,” BBM said.
As to the query about their senatorial slate, Sen. Bongbong said they would be providing everyone the list of their senate bets very soon or within days.
Regarding the question if they will have a full slate of 12, BBM said he cannot say for sure as of now.
However, he said they might be able to come up with 7, 8, or 9 candidates, or even come up with 12 after all.
Ferdinand "Bongbong" Marcos, also popularly known as BBM, is a Pinoy politician famous for being the only son of the late President Ferdinand Edralin Marcos. He served as Ilocos governor from 1998 to 2007 and then as congressman after stepping down as governor. In 2010, he ran and won as a senator and served as such until 2016. BBM then made an unsuccessful bid for the vice presidency in 2016, though protested the results of that election, alleging vote rigging and cheating.
Bongbong has issued a statement about the controversial interview he had with actress Toni Gonzaga. He said that Toni should not be bashed for sitting down with him for an interview. He also pointed out that while Toni is a vlogger and not a journalist, she is better than most journalists. BBM added that Toni is very good at getting information from the person she is interviewing.
As the interview of Toni Gonzaga with Bongbong takes center stage, the old interview of actress and former presidential daughter Kris Aquino at RPN during the early 90s recently went viral. In the said interview, Bongbong and Kris talked like friends, and the interview went well. Kris and Bongbong even managed to laugh about some things that happened in the past.
