Of course we could not be involved in voting but it is interesting to have opinions - and now no-one can say we are 'interfering' (Filipino for 'having a brain'). The election seemed fair in its counting and the result was quite massive for the President and VP - interesting to know how that link benefited one part of it! There was talk of social media use (I will say no more) but it is a resounding win.
One thing I have changed my mind on (or am wavering) is how much the sins of the father should be visited upon the son. Time will tell if this is a good Presidency - some work well and some are regretted soon after. I suppose it has to have its chance - but put your money on the next President being a woman.

He should at least pay the P23B unpaid taxes of the money the Marcos family stole from the Filipinos. Whether he wants to compensate some families with murdered, tortured or jailed family members during Marcos sr. dictatorship is another question. I don't think he will.

My wife is still in shock at the Philippine electoral suicide. We both remember the Marcos days....I was there then too for a while for military duties....I'd left straight from Vietnam, and the Philippines felt almost the same....martial law, odd restrictions, curfew, murder of unsupportive businessmen and journalists..(one journalist was a relative in Bacolod later)..etc...
What really stunned her was her young relatives in the Marcos camp before this election. They had no clue what life was like then...and said it was all a lie....You can't argue with them...It's like an electoral walking-dead mindlessly heading for the abyss.
