According to the sources of Politiko, President Rodrigo Duterte is making preparations for the former senator's entry into the cabinet after the ban on appointing losing candidates in the May 2016 elections expires.
Marcos would soon replace Ismael Sueno as DILG secretary.
As interior secretary, Marcos will be responsible for promoting peace and order, ensuring public safety and strengthening local government capability.
During the Aquino administration, it was widely believed that Mar Roxas was named Interior Secretary to cultivate relationships with local politikos to advance his presidential ambitions.
With Marcos’ imminent appointment to the Department of Interior and Local Government, it seems the son of the late president Ferdinand Marcos isn’t giving up yet on his presidential dreams even as his election protest against Vice President Leni Robredo is ongoing.
