Defeated vice presidential candidate Bongbong Marcos, according to the Financial Times, wants to return to Malacañang.
But Ilocos Norte politiko said he does not wake up everyday thinking about the position.
“My career is politics, and, of course, you aspire to as high a stature within your chosen field as you can achieve – and that would be president in my case. But it is not something that I wake up in the morning and plan on,” Marcos said.
He said he wants to focus on “nation-building” like his father, the late dictator Ferdinand Marcos.
“In my father’s administration, I kept hearing ‘nation-building,’ and I do not hear that phrase anymore. It’s more politicking than nation-building,” he said.
