The senator defended the party held in Malacañang to honor her mother, former First Lady Imelda Marcos.
Imelda Marcos, a former first lady who is currently 93 years old, saw her son take the oath-taking for the presidency and her late husband be inaugurated as president.
Some time following Imelda Marcos, the former first lady of the Philippines, celebrated her 93rd birthday as Bongbong Marcos took the oath of office. According to reports, everything took place at a Malacañang hall.
The Marcoses are one of of the most well-liked individuals in Philippine politics. For about two (2) decades, the late President Ferdinand Marcos Sr. reigned over the Philippines. Nearly 40 years after his overthrow and family’s exile to Hawaii, his son, President Bongbong Marcos was elected president.
Senator Imee Marcos, the former first daughter of the Marcos family, justified the 93rd birthday celebration of former first lady Imelda Marcos in Malacañang against conflicting views by claiming it was “not a party.”
Sen. Marcos emphasized that it was a “simple” get-together with family and friends, according to a statement on ABS-CBN News. She said that her mother’s musical and artistic scholars were there as well as they arranged a little presentation for the former First Lady, which she found pleasing.
Sen. Imee Marcos described the celebration of former First Lady Imelda Marcos’ 93rd birthday as a “small merienda.” She claimed that no government money were utilized for the event since “everyone brought food” as well as certain items were given away for free.
The Senator responded,“Bawal ba yun? Di ko alam. Kasi nagbi-birthday party rin ako nung bata ako doon eh. Bawal ba yun?”
