Former senator Ferdinand "Bongbong" Marcos Jr will run in the 2022 elections, his lawyer said Wednesday, after the Supreme Court trashed his electoral protest against his 2016 rival, Vice President Leni Robredo.

Marcos will make a "formal announcement" on his plans for next year's elections soon, his lawyer, Vic Rodriguez, told ANC's Headstart.

"He'll be running come 2022," Rodriguez said. Marcos had not spoken publicly since the high court, sitting as the Presidential Electoral Tribunal, ruled in favor of Robredo.
