Sakit sa ulo! Imee Marcos makes grave error in recent campaign material
Ilocos Governor Imee Marcos is probably relying on a rather loose platform and campaign team. In her recent post, the daughter of the late dictator Ferdinand Marcos mixed up her definition of poverty reduction.
Tignan niyo tong kabobohan ni Imee Marcos.
Pinagyayabang niya na bumababa daw ang Poverty REDUCTION rate during her time.
As if that's a good thing.
That's Poverty REDUCTION.
Ibig sabihin, mas naghirap ang Ilocos during your time.
Btw, wala pong Philippine Stats. Office. pic.twitter.com/lbKYDxPn0M

Marcos proudly boasted that during her career as governor, the poverty reduction rate was lowered. She even created a separate publicity material for it as if it’s a good thing that the Ilocos region became poorer under her leadership.
She also created a new government agency named Philippine Statistics Office. Many netizens corrected her and told her that PSO does not exist. In the Philippines, it is called the Philippine Statistics Authority.
What does she know about poverty anyway? Rather than cause it, of course!
