Awesome Imee Marcos


Miss Imee Marcos was in Zamboanga City last weekend. Barangay eMedia, through partner GIL Climaco, was privileged to interview her one on one. Miss Marcos is the present governor of Ilocos Norte. During the said interview, Miss Marcos was always candid and straightforward in her answers. But it was also noticeable that she has a good sense of humor, and never boring even on hard questions.

She emphatically mentioned that Zamboanga City has a special part to her heart, because according to her she had been in La Bella countless of times, particularly during the regime of her late father the then President Ferninand Marcos Sr. She also shared that one of her cousins had actually married a Zamboangueña from Pasonanca, by the name of Cecile Araneta. Hence, during her cousin’s wedding, which was held then here—you guessed it, Miss Marcos came also here in La Bella.

Filtering her gestures and demeanor, the young governor seemed to imply that she is no more a stranger to the Zamboangueño people and that the latter has a good part in her heart. Do you think that Miss Marcos is then already feeling the waters and comes, maybe, the 2019 elections she may run for a higher or a national position?

By simple inference, when a bigger personality roams around, it can be an indirect manifestation that he is already making future preparations. If you remember years ago, Senator Wil Gatchalian came also to Zamboanga City for several occasions. And at that time he was still a District Representative to Valenzuela City, NCR. Because he has a good and clean tract record, he then ran for senator and so unbelievably made it!

Such is not also far with regards to Miss Marcos. She too has a good and clean record, especially with regards to her executive administration in Ilocos Norte. Despite that her late father is continually hated by other people, but it is also an undeniable fact that the newer generation of the Filipinos have already gone over with those past “nightmares” side of our nation’s history. As they say, the sin of the father cannot be blamed to the children.

One solid proof to such fact was the staggering number of votes which Bong-Bong Marcos garnered, during the recent 2016 election. He almost won as the country’s Vice-President. In fact, his loss is even tainted with undisputable controversy. Short of saying that the younger Marcoses are indeed and undeniably winnable in any election even in the arena of a national bout, particularly this time.

Miss Marcos is obviously intelligent. The way she speaks or attacks the questions—on partner GIL’s interview, her answers were always precise and even carry a tangible sympathy to the people. None can tell too that with that more than 15-minute interview, she also had already something won hundreds of Zamboangueño hearts.

The Philippines is indeed pretty due for a big change. The Philippine Congress is even taking the issue to change our Constitution as its primary priority. Anytime soon, the country’s unitary form of government will change to federalism. Such is a quantum leap in our political exercise, as being a sovereign nation for over a century now.

Every Zamboangueño just hopes so that any future change shall be for the complete betterment of our country. Now, with regards to the younger Marcoses, they too are qualified and have all the necessary qualities to serve the Filipino people. Why so stop them, if their hearts tell them to give their best for the Motherland!

“O God, you are my God; earnestly I seek you; my soul thirsts for you; my flesh faints for you, as in a dry and weary land where there is no water. So I have looked upon you in the sanctuary, beholding your power and glory. Because your steadfast love is better than life, my lips will praise you. So I will bless you as long as I live; in your name I will lift up my hands.”’ (Ps. 63:1-4, ESV)
