    He will run as independent.

    Marcos was accompanied by wife Liza Araneta, cousin Leyte Rep. Martin Romualdez and several supporters when he showed up at the Commission on Elections main office in Intramuros, Manila.

    He said he will include in his program of government the eradication of poverty, illegal drugs and graft and corruption.

    “Sa tulong niyo at ng bayan, pamumunuan ko ang isang rebolusyon sa puso tungo sa isang tunay at makabuluhang pagbabago. Pamumunuan ko rin ang isang kampanya upang makamit natin ang ating mga pangarap sa buhay. Hindi ako makapapayag na mawala sa atin ang ilang bahagi ng ating bansa. Ipaglalaban ko ang integridad ng ating bayan,” he said.

    Marcos said that in his 30 years in public service, he had seen how the people had suffered and how they were left out by the government while corrupt officials siphoned off the country’s wealth in connivance with greedy individuals.

    He also criticized the government for its selective justice.

    “Hanggang ngayon, naghihintay pa rin ang taumbayan at tumitingin at umaasa sa ating mga lider na may gawin upang mabawasan man lang ang kanilang dinaranas na hirap at panganib. Wala pa tayong narinig na sagot. Ingay lamang ng mga opisyal na naguunahan sa pwesto… Ingay lamang ng mga nang-aabuso at nagnanakaw sa kaban ng bayan,”
