CAVITE – President-elect Ferdinand Marcos Jr. was the guest of honor at Bacoor’s 10th cityhood anniversary celebration held Thursday, June 23, at Bacoor Elementary School in Barangay Alima.
Also present during the event were Sen. Ramon Bong Revilla, Jr, Gov. Jonvic Remulla, Vice Gov. Jolo Revilla, and Mayor Lani Mercado Revilla.
During his speech, Marcos took the opportunity to thank Caviteños for their support during the elections.
“‘Nung matanggap ko ang imbitasyon galing sa inyong butihing mayor, sinabi ko, siguro naman, karapat-dapat na ang una kong paglabas bilang president-elect ay magpunta ako at magpasalamat ako sa mga taga-Bacoor at sa mga taga-Cavite… sa inyong pagbibigay ng resulta sa akin sa nakaraang halalan (When I received the invitation from your good mayor, I said it is just right that on my first trip as president-elect, I go and thank the people of Bacoor and Cavite for their support last election),” Marcos said during the event streamed live through Facebook.
The president-elect got 1.1 million votes from the vote-rich province last election.
