After the death of his father in 1989, President Corazon Aquino eventually allowed the remaining members of the Marcos family, including Bongbong, to return to the Philippines in order to face various charges.
Eventually, Bongbong ran for and was elected Governor of Ilocos Norte again in 1998.
Later on, he was elected as Representative of the Second District of Ilocos Norte from 1992 to 1995, and again from 2007 to 2010.
