President Ferdinand Marcos Jr.’s youngest son, William Vincent “Vinny” Marcos, has become conspicuous in the House of Representatives where he reportedly works as a special assistant to his uncle, Speaker Martin Romualdez.
The confirmation was made after Vinny was seen in meetings with congressmen on 2 occasions this week.
House Minority Leader and 4PS party-list Rep. Marcelino Libanan even posted photographs of him and Vinny on social media.
The posts included pictures of Libanan and Vinny in a meeting with the president’s cousin, the Speaker, and House Majority Leader Manuel Jose Dalipe.
Vinny Marcos describes has described himself as a software engineer turning into a presidential son.
“Today, as the resumption of session begins, we have continued to discuss legislation to help improve our country and for our fellow citizens’ sake. I am glad to have met with House Speaker Martin Romualdez, President Marcos Jr.’s son, Vincent Marcos, and my fellow congressmen after the holidays recess,” Libanan stated in his caption for the post.
Libanan would later post in the week that Vinny also joined a meeting of the House Minority Bloc.
“During the first Minority Bloc meeting, the agenda was centered [on] our priority measures for the year 2023, we are also delighted to have welcomed the President’s youngest son, Vinny Marcos who joined us this meeting,” Libanan said in his caption for the picture. “Thank you for visiting us!”
One of the participants in the Minority Bloc meeting, Deputy Minority Leader Bernadette Herrera, confirmed that the youngest Marcos was introduced to them as special assistant to the Speaker.
“Yes, he was,” Herrera said. “He was there to learn how the Minority works.”
Herrera also shared the message she received prior to the meeting: “Good Pm your Honors, Please be informed that Special Assistant to the Speaker, Mr. William Vincent Vinny Marcos will join the Minority bloc meeting tomorrow.”
The President’s eldest son, Ferdinand Alexander, had also been frequently spotted meeting with congressmen at the House of Representatives when their uncle, now the Speaker, was Majority Leader in the previous Congress.
Sandro Marcos had worked with his uncle then before getting himself elected as congressional representative of their family bailiwick of Ilocos Norte province.
