A petition in the Change.org website urges Duterte to appoint Ferdinand "Bongbong" Marcos as assistant president.
The post was created by a certain Midas Marcos. As of this writing, the petition is virtually signed by 4,399 supporters and only needs 67 people to reach its goal.
According to the petition:
President-elect Rodrigo Duterte, please appoint Senator Bongbong Marcos as your Deputy President.
You have mentioned in an interview with Rappler that if Leni Robredo will not win the Vice Presidential race, you will appoint her as your Assistant President.
Now that Leni Robredo has been proclaimed by the Senate and House of Congress as the duly "elected" Vice President of the Philippines, the opportunity for an Office of the Deputy President can be offered to Senator Bongbong Marcos.
You can be assured that your administration will be protected against the interests of the oligarchs Aquinos and Roxases.
Commenters said that Marcos is a perfect partner for Duterte. Marcos lost to Liberal Party standard bearer Leni Robredo by a hairline and the former reportedly demand a recount.
