Ferdinand 'Bongbong' Marcos Jr says he is determined to prove he was cheated during the presidential elections last 2016.
In a report by Rappler, KAMI learned that the former senator said he has no plans of running for the senatorial race in 2019 as he is convinced he already won as vice president.
"Bakit ako tatakbo ng senador eh nanalo na 'ko ng bise presidente (Why will I run for senator when I already won as vice president)?" said the former senator.
"I am not running for senator in 2019," Marcos said in response to questions at the Kapihan sa Manila Bay media forum on Wednesday.
He said he is focusing on his filed case agains VP Leni Robredo who won by just 263,473 votes in the 2016 race.
"Hindi ko titigilan itong protestang ito dahil tapat ang aking paniniwala na dinaya ako noong nakaraang halalan. At ipapalabas ko ang tunay na bilang ng boto nang malaman ng tao kung sino ba talaga ang pinili ng taong bayan bilang bise presidente," Marcos added.
In his electoral protest against Robredo, the ballot recount for Marcos' 3 pilot provinces of Camarines Sur, Iloilo, and Negros Oriental is set to begin in February.
Ferdinand 'Bongbong' Marcos Jr served in the Senate from 2010 to 2016.
He made it to the Magic 12 in the December 2017 senatorial survey of the Social Weather Stations (SWS), ranking 7-8.
