El Shaddai endorses Marcos


Lucena City: After reportedly getting the support of the Iglesia ni Cristo (INC), another religious group—the influential Catholic charismatic group El Shaddai of Bro. Mike Velarde — has endorsed the vice presidential bid of Senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr.

Velarde was to make the formal announcement on Saturday evening during the group’s prayer meeting at Amvel compound in Parañaque City.

But yesterday morning, Buhay Hayaang Yumabong (Buhay) party-list Rep. Lito Atienza said he was personally rooting for Marcos.

Atienza confirmed that Velarde was to make a special announcement yesterday evening.
Buhay is the party-list group founded by the El Shaddai leader. It has an estimated eight million active in the country and abroad.

On Friday, reports of INC’s endorsement of Marcos went viral on social media. The report was neither confirmed nor denied by the INC leadership.

The INC, which is known to vote as a bloc, has at least two million members.

    It will be a shame if Marcos wins. He must not win. He doesn’t have the moral ascendancy, when billions of dollars of Filipinos’ money have yet to be returned. He has an agenda, to cover up his family’s crimes. Bakit hindi aware ang mga tao tungkol sa masakit na Martial Law that killed hundreds. What has Bongbong accomplished on his own? Na hindi ginawa ng tatay nya.

    Think about it, Bongbong Marcos will do everything to redeem or clean their name which was sullied by the Yellow Propaganda Machine. It’s all a win for the Filipino people who will benefit from this competent leader’s vision. BBM is a mature individual who knows how to separate personal matters from politics unlike previous leaders who had personal vendettas and do as they feel at the expense of the Filipino people.

    I would be very happy to express my vote for Bong Bong Marcos,to this person whom i believe is worth in handling our own political maturity,to developed ones profound knowledge,in cultiviting his vision for the real development and unity among each individual person.

  4. Naku po pag nagkataon at nanalo si Bongbong baka magpasagasa na ng MRT si Pnoy o kaya tatalon sa ilog Pasig sa sama ng loob at d kayang tangapin. Talo pareho si Mar at Leni matutuluyan ng mabaliw si Pnoy!…Count down to LP’s and your end is near….Kaunting tiis na lang mga kababayan at maglaho na din silang gumasgas sa Daang Matuwid…

    • Kapag makulong si Noynoy ng dahil sa karma at kawalanghiyaan, eh doon sa Mental Hospital siya dadalhin dahil doon ang bagay para sa kanya. If I were one of his advisers I would suggest that the money intended for the campaign of his losing Marnok would be better if it would be used for the rehabilitation of said hospital, his future home.


    The most competent and mist brilliant of them all.. the only VP bet who has a clear stand and platform of government in every issues presently plaguing our country.. The Filipino’s Right Choice.. SENATOR BONGBONG MARCOS..

  6. Good choice. Although the regime of his father still in the minds of some I am confident that son Bong Marcos will be a good leader for the country. He will engage sound control of the government and improve the economy and welfare of the the people.

    • I agree with your thoughts. He will be a good leader. Why blaming the wrong doings of father to his son.

    Every group in the country is getting the right candidate for Vice Presidency in the person of Bongbong Marcos except the Malacaniang group.

    The group of the yellowistas is nearing their end. And Abnoy is specially disturbed.

  8. Mas lalong lalakas si BBM kung siya nga ang mapili ng INC ni Manalo at El Shadai ni Velarde!…Sino naman kaya ang piliin nila sa Presidente?

  9. His Excellency Ferdinand R. Marcos, Jr., Vice President of the Republic of the Philippines.

    Amen! Amen! Amen!
    Thanks be to God!
