Bongbong Marcos said they have tried to address every shortcoming and lack of clarity in the draft BBL.

Laoag City (CNN Philippines) — The Marcos family has officially cut ties with Ilocos Norte First District Rep. Rudy Fariñas.

According to Sen. Ferdinand "Bongbong" Marcos Jr., the family tried to accommodate Fariñas despite political differences, but they just couldn't see eye to eye.

“There are some demands of the congressman that we cannot accommodate,” Marcos said.

He added that Fariñas was becoming an impediment in the realization of the “One Ilocos Norte” goal.

Gov. Imee Marcos, his sister, announced recently that she might challenge Fariñas in the congressional race in the First District of Ilocos Norte in 2016.

Meanwhile, the three sons of Senator Marcos are now registered voters of Ilocos Norte.

Last Friday (September 11), Ferdinand Alexander, Joseph Simon, and William Vincent went through the registration procedures at the office of the Commission on Elections (Comelec) in Laoag City.

The senator’s eldest son Ferdinand Alexander — popularly known as Sandro — dismissed impressions that he would be joining the political race in Ilocos Norte in 2016.

“I just aim to be more active in supporting the political plans of the Marcos family, especially my father [the late former President Ferdinand Marcos],” he said.
