MANILA — A 30,000-strong transport organization has endorsed the candidacies of former Senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos, Jr., and Senate President Vicente “Tito” Sotto III for president and vice president, respectively.

Philtram national chairman, Mr. Aio Bautista, together with other officers of the organization, announced this in a press conference yesterday, Thursday ( 21 April 2022) in Quezon City.

Bautista said they are supporting the tandem of former senator Bongbong Marcos and current Senate President Tito Sotto this coming election.

They named the tandem MarSo, from the surname of Marcos and Sotto.

Philtram endorsed MarSo because, according to its national chairman Aio Bautista, they believe that their tandem will help their sector — as provided in their respective political platforms and advocacies — accurate and timely for the current condition of the transport sector amid rising fuel costs.

The group also believes that it is not too late for them to push and endorse the MarSo tandem.

In fact, early this April 2022, some of their members already endorsed MarSo in San Mateo, Montalban Rizal, Novaliches Quezon City, and many more.

They also have people in different sectors who asked to remain silent but actively endorsing the MarSo tandem until May.

They also believe that in the tandem MarSo, people will win.

Philtram is a group of three (3) sectors of transportation, like food delivery riders who served as frontliners in the midst of the pandemic, tricycle drivers who contributed essential things amid the pandemic, jeepney drivers and many more transport movers. (ai/mtvn)
