"On behalf of the United States, I congratulate President-elect Ferdinand Marcos Jr. on his election as the Philippines’ next president. We look forward to working with President-elect Marcos to strengthen the enduring alliance between the United States and the Philippines," he said in a press statement.

"Our special partnership is rooted in a long and deeply interwoven history, shared values and interests, and strong people-to-people ties," he added.

Blinken also noted that Washington D.C. would likewise continue to cooperate with Manila "to promote respect for human rights and to advance a free and open, connected, prosperous, secure, and resilient Indo-Pacific region."


Marcos Jr. is slated to win the presidency with over 31.1 million votes against Vice President Leni Robredo's 14.8 million votes, based on the Commission of Elections' partial and unofficial tally from the 98.35 election returns processed as of May 12.
