(Inside Manila) In a ceremony meant to be full of smiles for fulfilled dreams and reveries, many were disappointed on how things unfolded right before their eyes.


This happened when Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. was introduced as the “soon to be vice president” at the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) oath-taking ceremony for dentists.





Of the many titles that can be used to present the son of the late dictator, attendees were upset at the organizers as they opted to call him the future vice president of the country.


Apparently, the former senator has been the guest of honor and speaker of the Professional Regulatory Board of Dentistry for the past three years.


The Professional Regulatory Board, which graced oath-taking ceremonies of licensed professions, was created by Marcos’ father, former President Ferdinand Marcos on June 22, 1973.


Attendees expressed their displeasure on social media.


One of them criticized PRC for “losing integrity.”



While some poked fun and called Marcos “anak ng mandarambong.”
