SEN. Ferdinand Marcos Jr. doesn’t consider being the son of the late former President Ferdinand Marcos as a curse.
In fact, he sees it as an advantage in case he decides to run for a higher position in 2016.
“I only have recognized the blessing not the curse. I never felt that I was cursed somehow by being a Marcos,” Marcos told reporters on Friday.
“I feel that if there are disadvantages, they are far outweighed by the advantages of being the son of my parents,” he added.
Although still eligible for reelection, Marcos is among those rumored to be running for either President or Vice President in 2016.
“All options are available to me from barangay [village]captain to President of the country, but I will of course be a candidate for a national position,” he said.
