Ilocos Norte Governor Ma. Imelda Josefa “Imee” Marcos is endorsing an online petition to have her late father, former President Ferdinand Marcos, buried at the Libingan ng Mga Bayani.
Marcos posted on her Twitter account Thursday afternoon a call to click on the link and sign the virtual petition on Change.org.
“Support the former President Ferdinand E. Marcos’ burial at the Libingan ng mga Bayani: Click the link…,” she said
The Change.org petition was started Sept. 5, with 10,457 supporters as of 5:30 p.m. Thursday.
It called for Marcos’ burial at the Libingan ng Mga Bayani regardless of whether he was “good or evil, good and evil.
Good or evil, good and evil, how you judge former President Ferdinand E. Marcos, is your personal belief… One thing we cannot deny, is that he was once a President of the Republic of the Philippines, a former Secretary of Defense, and a soldier, entitling him, by decree, pursuant to AFP Regulations G161-137, to be buried at the Libingan ng Mga Bayani,” it said.
