PRESIDENT Ferdinand R. Marcos Jr., has been included in the list of Time Magazine’s “100 Most Influential People of 2024.” 

According to the publication, they lauded the Chief Executive for his stance remaining “steadfast against Chinese aggression” in the West Philippine Sea, as well as “bolstering” the country’s alliance with the US.

“Many problems persist, including extra­judicial killings and journalists routinely attacked. But by trying to repair his family name, Bongbong may reshape his country too,” the magazine wrote, while also noting the family’s dark past during the martial law regime.
