Before going to COMELEC, LP and its supporters met at the Ninoy Aquino Monument in Ayala Avenue, Makati City and marches going to Manila Cathedral in Intramuros Manila where they held a mass, the same church where Noynoy’s mother former President Corazon “Cory” Aquino was held during its wake last August. After the mass they went to Comelec to file their COCs.

After the LP submitted their COCs, Representative Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos II submitted his COC as one of the senatorial bet of Nacionalista Party under its standard bearer Manny Villar and his running mate Loren Legarda (of National People’s Coalition) as his vice president. With Bongbong bringing his father’s name former President Ferdinand Marcos, the issue of dictatorship and martial law was attached to the name of the Ilocos representative. Bongbong firmly says that he is proud being as a Marcos and he sees it as an advantage for his senatorial race for the 2010 election. Like Bongbong, Retired Col Ariel Querubin will be running as one of the senatorial candidate of NP even though he facing the mutiny cased filled against him.
