Akyson Demokratiko chair Ernest Ramel on Thursday, Oct. 21, said former senator Ferdinand ‘’Bongbong’’ Marcos Jr. committed 'idea theft' against Manila Mayor Francisco "Isko Moreno" Domagoso.
This, after Marcos urged Congress to suspend the tax on oil products, shortly after Domagoso vowed to slash the excise tax on fuel by half if he is elected as president in the upcoming elections.
"There is no doubt that Marcos committed ‘idea theft’ against Mayor Isko. This is similar to a rich kid from Forbes Park stealing the ‘term paper’ of a poor but smart kid from the slums of Tondo," the Aksyon Demokratiko chair said in a statement Thursday..
"It seems that thievery and fakery is in the blood of the Marcoses. Fake war medals of Senior. Fake diploma from Oxford of Junior," Ramel added.
Domogoso filed his certificate of candidacy (COC) for president on Oct. 4, while Marcos filed his COC on Oct. 6.
Marcos has yet to issue an official statement on the matter as of this writing.
