Twenty-five cause-oriented organizations have formed an alliance backing the candidacy of Presidential aspirant Ferdinand ‘Bongbong’ Marcos, Jr. in the upcoming 2022 elections.

The Progressive Alliance for BBM recently visited Marcos’ campaign headquarters in Mandaluyong City and submitted a manifesto to express its support.

The alliance consists of 25 organizations representing various sectors such as OFWs, Seafarers, Barangay Youth, Christian Churches, Loyalists, and Healthcare workers.

The group submitted a document entitled ‘Manifesto of Unity, Support, and Commitment to ‘Bring Back the Momentum’ To Our Country’s Progress and Development’ to Marcos’ wife, lawyer, Atty. Louise Araneta-Marcos through a simple ceremony held recently.

“Believing in a unifying leadership, we, the leaders of the parallel groups and organizations, hereby coalesce and express our deep commitment and unwavering support to a true public servant, a forward-thinking leader and a genuine man for the people, Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos, Jr.,” a portion of the manifesto read.

The manifesto, read in full by the group’s convenor, Mr. Joey Fornier further stated, “We pledge to align all our efforts to work as one in campaigning and utilizing all means available – our manpower and resources – to achieve our unified goal of electing and installing BBM as the next President of the Republic of the Philippines.”

In her acceptance message, Atty. Louise Araneta-Marcos said, “I know you have gone a long long way, my husband couldn’t be here dahil umiikot na kasi siya pero pinapasabi niya na maraming-maraming salamat.  It’s because of people like you na maski ano ang batikos nila sa amin, fight pa rind dahil sa inyo. Maraming salamat.”

Before this, representatives from the country’s largest transport groups also endorsed Marcos’ Presidential in the upcoming 2022 polls, saying they believe Marcos’ plans for their sector and trusts him to implement them once he secures the people’s mandate.

Support for Marcos’ candidacy is accelerating following his stellar performance in online and traditional Presidential preference surveys.

In the latest survey conducted by The Manila Times from October 26 to November 2,  Marcos cornered 68% of the votes. A far cry from the 10.8% obtained by his nearest competitor.  Other presidentiables only registered single digits.

The alliance also vowed, “to remain steadfast to our duties and responsibilities and wholeheartedly dedicate our loyalty and service to BBM, as the one and only fit and capable man to build back a grappling naton to greatness.”

In closing the manifesto urged Filipinos to join BBM’s fight and bring back the Marcos leadership into our government. It added, BBM, Ikaw ang Presidente ko!, sama-sama tayong babangon muli!
