  1. I am just curious since there are too many people to vote. Does he not have achievements as a senator (bills passed etc)

    • sir i suggest you do your own research. as far as i can tell this site is also bias they didn’t even put the achievements of BBM during his congress and senate

      In the 15th Congress (2010–2013), Marcos authored 34 Senate bills.[citation needed] He also co-authored 17 bills in the 15th congress. Of the bills he co-authored, seven were enacted into law, most notably the Anti-Drunk and Drugged Driving Act whose principal author was Senator Vicente Sotto III; the Cybercrime Prevention Act whose principal author was Senator Edgardo Angara; and the Expanded Anti-Trafficking in Persons and the National Health Insurance Acts, both of which were principally authored by Senator Loren Legarda.[64]

      In the 16th Congress (2013–2016), Marcos authored 52 bills.[citation needed] One of them was enacted into law: Senate Bill 1186, which sought the postponement of the 2013 Sangguniang Kabataan (SK) elections, was enacted as Republic Act 10632 on October 3, 2013.[65][66][verification needed]

      Marcos also co-authored 4 Senate bills in the 16th Congress. One of them, Senate Bill 712 which was principally authored by Ralph Recto, was enacted as Republic Act 10645, the Expanded Senior Citizens Act of 2010.[49][67]

      As of February 2016, he was the chairman of the Senate committees on local government and public works. He also chaired the oversight committee on the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM) Organic Act, the congressional oversight panel on the Special Purpose Vehicle Act, and a select oversight committee on barangay affairs.[68][dead link][better source needed]

      • Ok din paka achievements, at least marami siya na co-sponsors na bills at sa 74 bills niya sa congress may isa (1) siyang naipasang batas, EXTENSION OF BARANGAY ELECTIONS. At masaya kana diyan? At gusto mo na siyang maging pangulo ng bansa?
