Loyalists of Norman Mangusin, popularly known as Francis Leo Marcos (FLM) was urging the internet celebrity and self-proclaimed businessman to run in the 2022 elections.
In a video posted by Youtube channel Macmac Pablo FLM, he showed a survey showing that some netizens wanted Marcos to run in any position in the next elections.
“Ako po ay isa sa susuporta kay FLM kung maisipan niya na tumakbo, bakit kasi po unang una alam niyo po na laging sinasabi ni FLM na wala sa kanya ‘yung politics,” said Pablo.
However, Pablo said that he’s not really in favor of letting Marcos run for President because he feels that the internet celebrity who’s currently facing multiple charges, like illegal recruitment and estafa has not yet ready to lead the country to glory.
“Sa akin lamang, parang hindi pa po siya handa (Marcos) sa pagiging Presidente, dahil hindi pa po siya nakakaranas makaupo sa kahit anong posisyon ng gobyerno, hindi pa po siya nakakapasok sa kahit anong sangay ng gobyerno,” he said.
“So naisip ko, kung sa Presidente po ay baka hindi po maging maganda ang tema mga tao sa kanya, baka pwede siguro sa medyo mababa, baka pwede siya sa Vice President,” he added.
“So kung manalo si FLM bilang Vice President, aba napaka galing na ka-tandem ng isang Presidente ang isang Francis Leo Marcos, nakita niyo naman noong panahon ng pandemya ay itinulong ang sarili niyang pera, hindi siya humingi ng donasyon, hindi siya nanghingi ng tulong sa kanyang mga kakilala,” he also said despite the evidence that Marcos asked for donations using Volunteers against the poverty foundation.
Some fans of Marcos insisted to let the internet celebrity to run as President and possibly rival the bet of the Duterte administration and the opposition.
The internet celebrity was currently under the custody of BJMP.
This is not the first time that someone was being pushed to run for national election despite being detained.
The camp of Marcos has yet to comment on the request of their loyalist.
Former Senator Antonio Trillanes IV won the senatorial election in 2007 despite being detained for rebellion and mutiny charges.
