Marcos goes around the nation...


SEN. Ferdinand "Bongbong" Marcos Jr. denied he is running for a higher post just because he is going around the country.


As chair of the Senate Committee on Local Government, Marcos said he is roaming around the nation to solicit sentiments on the Bangsamoro Act and the Sangguniang Kabataan (SK) Reforms Act.


"I have to study them and I have to make it fast considering that the SK election is scheduled on Feb. 2015," Marcos said when he guested at the 888 news forum in the Marco Polo Plaza Cebu last week.


"The young people have very specific issues in the society," Marcos said.
