Son of the late Philippine dictator Marcos running for president

The son of the late Philippine strongman Ferdinand Marcos declared on Tuesday that he will run for president, putting an end to speculation about his political ambitions but angering the victims of his father’s brutal era of martial law. Ferdinand Marcos Jr, the only son of the late dictator who ruled the Philippines for nearly two decades until his overthrow in 1986, offered a “unifying” leadership that he believes could heal the country after the COVID-19 crisis. “Join this noblest cause and we will succeed,” said Marcos, a longtime politician popularly known as “Bongbong” and more recently, BBM, in a three-minute speech streamed on social media.
