January 21, 1961, Senator Ferdinand E. Marcos was elected president of the Liberal Party.

On January 21, 1961, Senator Ferdinand E. Marcos was elected president of the Liberal Party at a convention held in a cabaret in Santa Ana, Manila, after having withdrawn his candidacy for the party’s presidential nomination.

Earlier, during this convention, Diosdado Macapagal was nominated as the party’s candidate for the presidency and former senator Emmanuel Pelaez its candidate for the vice-presidency. Pelaez defeated the efforts of Sergio Osmena Jr. to secure the nomination for the vice-presidency.

He broke with the party after failing to secure its nomination as candidate for the presidential election in 1965. He then ran under the banner of the Nationalista Party against the Liberal party president, Diosdado Macapagal.
