11:03 am
of their belief in our message of unity because of their belief in the candidates his when cement his families returned to power in the philippines. following the revolution, the toppled his late father in 1986. the elder ferdinand marcos ruled the philippines as a dictator for 2 decades at his tenure was infamous for its corruption and brutality. for many it was unthinkable that the marcos clan would ever run for the highest office again after returning from exile the marcus's return to public life in the philippines with several family members taking on political positions. many of bon bongs, younger supporters don't connect him to his father's crimes. but i'm in a bubble on thought that we believed that bbm is starkly different from his father

. ferdinand bung bung markers run his election campaign on the promise of unity, but has failed to explain his policy plans in detail. analysts, warren, that his administration will most likely mean more strong men, postering and less democratic freedoms and transparency a corresponded janelle de milan is in the philippine capital for us. i asked her how the result is going down on the streets of manila. i'm standing out at our bb and campaign, had orders here in manila. i think you might be able to see his porter is behind me . still very jubilant. following the vote yesterday. there are you there. we up. 3rd, zuba, lading. they are waving signs that say b, b, m, and sarah, when the big they are waving at cars that are in for an honking to signal or support. i don't know if you can hear that. but all of us, of course, fans, and very stark contrast to all other people that you showed earlier in the program,
11:05 am
you showed some protest. those are taking place some 10 kilometers away from here. we were also there earlier and the mood there is defiant mood and there is angry people. there are decrying an election that they said was unfair. that was read all that with technical issues. they are still processing their support for a v b m to rival lannie roberto. so just in general, the reaction here is a very polarized one reflecting a very divisive election. hard to say how those divisions will disappear, or if they ever will to bring us back to the jubilant part of town. why so many boaters willing to give the marcus family another chance their way? you are well when they return from exile in 1991, the mark, this is basically had plenty of opportunity they had a decades to rebuild their influence to consolidate their influence, to build out their patronage networks to create media strategies all with the goal
11:06 am

11:07 am
ended. well, i think that's been this policy is a strategic he keeps. if you keep the statements general things like i am going to lower prices for the more without really having to say how he's going to do that. then people are free to imagine that you know, that he will do whatever it takes to help them make are for you to imagine the ways in which you will be a good leader for them. but nobody actually knows. but there are a few obvious things that perhaps might happen in the course of his administration . for example, past the efforts of past governments to recover the wealth that his family sold from the state. if we can imagine that those efforts for all under a marcus president see we can imagine about with the vice presidency of sarah derrick that his running mate. that would mean the crimes of the incumbent. president rodrigo, that there in the course of his job was, well go on prosecutor. and these are things that would require a certain kind of dismantling of democratic institution. and this is one thing
