This politiko scion could just one day rule his hometown.
Sandro Marcos seemed to be spending more time in his home province of Ilocos Norte, triggering rumors he might run for local office next year. The British-educated Sandro is the eldest of three sons of former Senator Bongbong Marcos and lawyer Liza Marcos.
In recent weeks, Sandro has been spotted mingling with residents, extending assistance to those in need, and even distributing face masks and other protective gear in the province. The young, smart and charismatic lad often wore a red polo shirt, the known political color of the Marcos family.
When he celebrated his 27th birthday, Sandro chose to spend his special day with the Ilocos residents. He took to Instagram to express his joy on his birthday and posted photos of his hometown visit.
“Can’t think of anything better than giving back to my home province on my birthday weekend ✌🏾” Sandro wrote on Instagram.
He is also grateful for people who made his birthday extra special. “Thank you to all of those who were kind enough to spend time with me throughout the weekend! As I told them, they are truly the reason as to why this weekend has filled me with joy and meaning!” he said.
In the event he joins the world of politics, Sandro is backed up by a strong educational background. He holds a master’s degree in Development Studies from the London School of Economics and Political Science. He currently works as assistant of his uncle House Majority Leader Martin Romualdez.
Sandro also has a political pedigree as the Marcos family kept its hold on power in Ilocos Norte.
His grandparents are late President Ferdinand Marcos and former First Lady and Ilocos Norte Rep. Imelda Marcos. Sandro’s dad is a former senator, who is rumored to run for higher public office next year.
His aunt is Senator Imee Marcos, a former governor of Ilocos Norte. Sandro’s cousin is Ilocos Norte Government Matthew Marcos Manotoc, son of Senator Imee.
