The rivalry between the Marcoses and Aquinos is heating up once again as the election season draws closer.
Results of a commissioned pre-election survey conducted by the Social Weather Stations and obtained by Politiko showed Ilocos Norte Governor Imee Marcos jostling with Senator Paolo Benigno “Bam” Aquino IV for the last spot in the so-called “Magic 12” list of winnable senators.
Marcos was ranked 11th to 12th place while Aquino was in 13th place.
Aquino will run under the Liberal Party while Marcos has been floated as one of the administration coalition’s candidates.
The governor, however, has yet to confirm whether she will run for senator.
SWS conducted the commissioned survey from September 15 to 23.
