Presidential son William Vincent “Vinny” Marcos works as an intern at the House of Representatives, according to the office of Speaker Martin Romualdez.
In a statement, the Speaker’s office said Vinny, youngest son of the President, has been working at the Speaker’s office since Monday last week.
“Vinny will undergo training in the legislative processes,” the statement said.
“He will be mentored on the daily grind at the House of Representatives, including the role and interaction of various committees and departments on the legislative processes, as well as strategies to help expedite the passage of vital bills and other measures for the benefit of the Filipino people,” it added.
The paper said the Speaker, who is Vinny’s uncle, will supervise and oversee the young Marcos’ training, a task he also did for Vinny’s older brother, Ferdinand Alexander “Sandro” Marcos, during the 18th Congress.
Sandro, 28, currently serves as Ilocos Norte First District Representative and holds the position of House Senior Deputy Majority Leader.
Vinny was seen earlier at a meeting with the members of the House Minority bloc led by House Minority Leader Marcelino “Nonoy” Libanan.
Libanan, in a statement on Sunday, confirmed that Vinny has been designated as special assistant to the Speaker.
“The truth is, we were advised that Mr. Vincent ‘Vinny’ Marcos had been designated special assistant to the Speaker, and the Speaker merely asked us to brief the young man on the role and work of the House minority bloc,” Libanan said.
“We must stress that even if the majority and minority blocs have differing views, we in the House can all agree to disagree without being disagreeable,” he added.
