"Mr. William Vincent 'Vinny' A. Marcos has been working as an intern at the office of Speaker Ferdinand Martin G. Romualdez since Monday last week," read a statement from Romualdez's office on Monday morning, Jan. 30.

Vinny, 26, President Ferdinand "Bongbong" Marcos Jr.'s youngest son, "will undergo training in the legislative processes", it stated.

"He will be mentored on the daily grind at the House of Representatives, including the role and interaction of various committees and departments on the legislative processes, as well as strategies to help expedite the passage of vital bills and other measures for the benefit of the Filipino people," the Speaker's office said.

"Speaker Romualdez is expected to supervise and oversee his training, as the Speaker had done for Mr. Vinny's eldest brother, House Senior Deputy Majority Leader and Ilocos Norte 1st district Rep. Ferdinand Alexander Marcos," it further said.

Romualdez, Leyte’s 1st district representative, is President Marcos' cousin.

Sandro ran for a House seat in May 2022, or after two years worth of tutelage under Romualdez. At that time, Romualdez was the majority leader.
