MANUEL L. QUEZON III – Here are some details about the grandson of former president Manuel L. Quezon.
Quezon is currently making rounds online following his criticism of the “harutan” of Ilocos Norte 1st district Representative Sandro Marcos and Cavite 8th district Representative Aniela Tolentino in the middle of a session.
