Ilocos Norte Governor Imee R. Marcos appealed today, October 16, 2015
for a ‘Solid North’ support to her brother, Senator Bongbong Marcos
on his vice presidential bid in the upcoming 2016 polls.

In her message after a mass held at the Immaculate Conception Church in
Batac City, Ilocos Norte which was attended by the members and
supporters of the Marcos family, Gov. Imee expressed her optimism of
having the full support of the Ilocanos.

“_Inaasahan ko na tayo dito sa Batac ay magkakaisa, na iiwasan natin
ang hati-hati at ang dungis at pait ng pulitika kundi magkakaisa para sa
maganda at matayog na mithiin na magkaroon ng bise-presidente, Ferdinand
E. Marcos, Jr. of Batac City, Ilocos Norte in 2016_.”

She also said that Sen. Bongbong has a strong chance of winning the race
because the votes from the ‘Solid North’ composed of Ilocos Region,
Cagayan Valley and Cordillera Administrative Region will definitely go
for him.

“_Parang tadhana na sapagkat siya lamang ang taga-amianan (north), si
Bongbong lamang ang kandidato na nanggaling sa Ilocandia. Siguro hulog
ng langit na aksidente na lahat ng kanyang kalaban at katunggali ay
galing sa Bicolandia_.”

She also expressed her confidence that Marcos loyalists from a big
portion in Metro Manila and Eastern Visayas where her mother,
Congresswoman Imelda Marcos, hails will continue supporting their

“We pray for your blessing, benediction and support and your unfailing
affection for my family and we thank you for the pride and the honor of
serving you throughout the decades,” Gov. Imee concluded.
