President-elect Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. has been advised to use a teleprompter for his much-awaited inaugural speech on Thursday, June 30.

The teleprompter will aid Marcos on the outline of his speech, “to ensure sequencing and coherence”, according to a statement from Press Secretary-designate Trixie Cruz-Angeles on Wednesday night.

But the use of the device reportedly caused “slight changes” to the incoming leader’s inaugural address, which he is expected to deliver at around noon Thursday.

The inauguration ceremony at the National Museum in Ermita, Manila will start with the singing of the Philippine national anthem, followed by an ecumenical/iInterfaith prayer.

Marcos will take his oath before Supreme Court (SC) Chief Justice Alexander G. Gesmundo, after which he will deliver his speech.

Before the oath-taking, the Senate President will read the Joint Resolution from both Houses of Congress that declared Marcos as the 17th president of the Philippines.

Marcos’s father, the late President Ferdinand Marcos Sr., is known for delivering extemporaneous speeches.
