President Duterte on his official state-visit in China called Marcos as the next vice president in front of the Filipino Community in Beijing, China on Wednesday, reported by ABS-CBN News.
But that if the latter wins his electoral protest.
Si Bongbong, kung manalo siya sa protest niya, baka bago ang ating bise president.Duterte said before members of the Filipino community in Beijing.
On the said event, he introduced Marcos as his vice president only if he wins his election protest.
Duterte shared the same stage where he speaks before members of Filipino community in Beijing with Marcos and his sister, Ilocos Norte Governor Imee Marcos.
Marcos filed an election protest against the now Vice President Leni Robredo, claiming a massive fraud took place on the vice presidential race.
The case is still on-going as of the moment .
Amid criticisms against the Marcos family, Duterte has continued to express support to the family and urged the late Ferdinand Marcos be buried at the Libingan ng mga Bayani. The President even admitted that he’s very close to the Marcos family.
However, this has sparked controversies and the Supreme Court has yet to issue their decision.
