Controversial Francis Leo Marcos files COC for senator


CONTROVERSIAL INTERNET SENSATION Francis Leo Marcos has filed his certificate of candidacy (COC) as an independent senatorial aspirant in the upcoming May 2022 national and local elections.

FLM filed his candidacy on October 8, 2021, according to the document obtained by MDNN, along with other senatoriables, presidentiables and vice presidentiables.

In 2018, Francis Leo Marcos also filed his candidacy as senatorial aspirant but was later disqualified by the Commission on Elections.


FLM became controversial in 2020 when he masterminded the very famous “Mayaman Challenge,” urging the subdivision’s homeowners in Green Meadows Subdivision to ‘come out in their shells’ and help the Filipino people badly affected by the pandemic.

FLM shelled out millions of pesos and delivered truckloads of rice to many people and organizations in Luzon and Visayas. All these rice and veggies donations made him an internet sensation propelling his Youtube Channel into a million plus subscribers.

FLM’s bold pronouncements have made the homeowners reportedly angry at him, which also started more issues against Francis Leo who claims to be part of the very famous Marcos Clan. His pronouncements, however, were denied by the Marcosses.

Through his “Mayaman Challenge,” FLM gained detractors in the process, in which these critics found its way to dig deeper on his alleged miserable past.

Until Francis Leo Marcos was arrested by the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) last year, for various cases filed in court against him.

FLM cannot be contacted for an online interview at press time to shed light on his present cases filed in court.

Earlier reports surfaced that FLM could be given a bail, citing some provisions which could allow his temporary liberty to fully participate in the election process in the country.

Based on the document, there were 40 unknown personalities who have also filed for presidency on October 8. They include: Ferdinand Jose Pijao, Danilo Roble, Cornelio Seño, Loreto Agcaoile, Alejo Katigbak, Hilario Andes, Juan Aguilar, Jr, Percival De Guzman, Kamadhenu Gaa, Anthony Fajardo, Robert Navarro, Nestor Talion, Gerald Arcega, Bonifacio Bravo, Edgardo Los Baños, Ernesto Abella, Ricardo Domingo, Diane De Leon, Lucio Erazo, Antero Fabito, Felix Natnat, Diosdada Dacillo, Eric Negapatan, Danilo Lihaylihay, Vladimir Ocampo, Apolonia Soguilon, Anna Capella Velasco, Reysal Bahian, Grepor Belgica, Cesar Roca, Pedrito Tagle, Orlando De Guzma, Ronald Dela Rosa, Arsenio Dimaya, Josephine Murillo, Evelia Abarrondo, Arsenio Antiporda Jr, Deogracias Porio, Ramon Raco Diaz, and Edmundo Fuerte.

For the vice-presidentiables, those who filed their COCs include the following: Francis “Kiko” Pangilinan, Arlene Josephine Butay, Addullatief Pumbaya, Elpidio Rosales, Jr, Rey Anthony Bereber, Rizalito David, Emmanuel Lopez, Raquel Castillo, Lyle Fernando Uy, Benedicto Jose, Diego Palomares, Jr, Nerissa Navarro, and Joel Sison.

Of the 13 aspirants for the vice-presidential race, only Senator Francis “Kiko” Pangilinan is well-known. It is being reported earlier that he will be the VP aspirant of Presidentiable Leni Robredo. Robredo accompanied Senator Pangilinan during the last day of the filing of candidacy on October 8.

For all the presidentiables who filed their COCs, only Senator Ronald “Bato” Dela Rosa is famous. The rest could be considered by the Commission on Elections later as nuisance candidates. This is also true with the vice presidential race. Twelve of them could be proclaimed by the Comelec as nuisance candidates.

Senator Dela Rosa filed his COC under the PDP Laban wing of Energy Secretary Alfonso Cusi.

Those unknown personalities who filed their COCs, except Senator Sherwin Gatchalian, former MinDA chairperson Manny Piñol, Senator Leila De Lima, Senator Antonio Trillanes, Rep Rodante Marcoleta, Robinhood Padilla, and Gregorio Honasan, were unknown personalities.
